Dear Parent,

It is a well understood fact that a student’s career should best be built upon the strengths and limitations, interests and disposition of the child.  Identifying the aptitude and interest of a student is not easy in an environment where ability is often obscured by ambition. Even if the student’s aptitude is well ascertained, various aspects that need to be considered before a decision is taken are the interest of the sudent, family aspirations, finances, scope of the career and many more such factors. The school, in collaboration with Extramarks, is conducting a Career Assessment Program(CAP) by expert psychologists and counselors to provide genuine guidance to parents and the students of class X.  The standardized Career Assessment Test will help the student to determine what her / his abilities are best suited for. The program will include the following-

  • Career Assessment Test – a unique combination of Personality, Aptitude and Career Interest test (based upon the most recent parameters of testing the skills and abilities)which will help students to identify the right stream, course and career selection in accordance with their personality and abilities. It will be 2 hours assessment.
  • Graphic and Detailed Report Card – each student showcases the student’s personality traits, aptitude score and career interest area.
  • One on One Counseling of students and parents to-`
  • Assess academic performance and potential
  • Analyze strengths and weaknesses
  • Discuss various career options and how to make smart career choices
  • Guide students on suitable stream selection with various subjects combinations
  • The registration fee for the program is `500/- to be paid in cash.
  • Date of the test :          17 November 2017
  • Timings :                       8 am-10 am

The test results give adequate guidance to you and your ward to decide upon an ideal career path, taking into account his/her aspirations and aptitude.

Please note that the subject stream selection in class XI for your ward will depend on the cut off specified for each stream as informed to you earlier. The result of this career assessment test will not have any bearing on the stream allotted by the school.

If you are interested in your ward taking this assessment , please send the registration fee along with the consent slip latest by Tuesday 24 October 2017.

Dear  Parent,

The city Delhi is our home and has multiple facets to it. While its modernity is a matter of pride for us and speaks volumes about the growth made by it over the years, its glorious past also doesn’t fail to add to its beauty at the same time. The fine roots to the plurality of the Delhi culture can be traced back to the experiences that it has had over the years and are reflected in the symbols of its heritage that often go unnoticed.

Our school has joined hands with Itihaas which is a trust run by a group of committed people who take school children on heritage walks across the city.  The students see places that played a part in Delhi’s political and cultural history, listen to stories about them and meet with people who bring that history alive.

Students of Classes III to X will be going on these heritage walks as specified below. The cost mentioned is the fee per student for each walk, which will include the cost of the tickets, professional guidance, etc. The walk will be conducted during school hours.

Dear Parents

The session 2017-2018 began with a lot of changes in the school, but stability for students has always remained the priority for us. As Ms.Preeti Chadha relocated to another city in July, Ms. Geeta Oberai took over the reins of the Junior School from her,and ably inspired and guided the students and teachers. Unfortunately,she has had to leave us due to an unexpected emergency at home. Ms. Shivani Khanna has taken charge of the Junior School from this month. Ms. Khanna comes with many years of experience in teaching and administration, and I am sure, she will add to the steady ascent of TIS in every field.

If you wish to meet with Ms. Khanna, please email the request on school E-mail i.d.-This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., to fix an appointment for you. Alternatively,you may meet with her on any working day between 8 am and 10 am.or on any working Saturday.

We stay committed to making TIS the happiest place for your children to be in.

Dear Parents

The recent cases of abuse and accidents of children at school premises have created anxiety and concern amongst parents regarding safety of their children. At Tagore International School, safety of students has always been given top priority. I would like to apprise you all of the safety measures already in place:

  • We have CCTV cameras at all three school gates, in the corridors, the school ground, the bus yard and the boundary of the school. The footage from all these cameras is monitored regularly.
  • Police verification of all support staff including drivers and conductors is done before appointing any member.
  • We conduct regular meetings with all our teaching and non teaching staff members, and reiterate the importance of student safety in the school.
  • In all our buses, we have atleast one teacher and a lady supervisor who travels till the last bus stop.
  • Every floor has the required lady support staff who is posted outside the washrooms and who also clean the washroom every hour.
  • We have a separate washroom for our male support staff, which is outside the building, and they do not use the washrooms on the classroom floors.  However, the lady support staff uses the girls’ washroom on their respective floors.
  • We have a proper exit plan in case of an emergency which has been put on the notice board in each classroom.
  • We conduct fire drills on regular basis for students to know their exit routes.
  • We do not tolerate bullying or any kind of vandalizing of school property. Regular announcements are made during assembly and in the classes reiterating this message. Strict action is taken in case of any such incident.
  • All visitors/ parents entering the school have to provide complete details at the gate, about themselves, the purpose of their visit and the person they will be meeting. We are implementing some more measures to make the school a safer place for our students:
  • No student will be allowed to enter school before 7.30 am as our support staff arrives only at 7.30 am. Students who come for coaching will also enter school premises once the concerned sport s teacher arrives.
  • All washrooms will open only at 8 am, except the one on the ground floor, which will be fully monitored.
  • We are implementing a buddy program for the Junior section where all students will move in pairs outside the class - while visiting the washroom or going to the school ground.

To make our children more safe and secure we would like to enlist your support in the following ways

  • Talk to them about good touch and bad touch, about avoiding interaction with strangers and reporting any and every concern /incident, however irrelevant it may seem.
  • If you notice any change in your ward’s behavior, please inform the school authorities and meet the counselor so that we can help the student at the right time.
  • Keep the channel of communication open with your wards and give them a patient hearing for even the smallest of matters.
  • If your ward is not attending school, you must inform the teacher by email or sms not later than 10 minutes after the official start of school.
  • Avoid talking in a derogatory manner about the teacher / school in front of your ward as it destroys the trust bond between the students and the school. If you have any concern, you can write to us or meet us personally to discuss
  • From now on all parents will need to carry their school ID card when visiting school or picking their wards. Parents who do not bring their ID cards will not be allowed in.

We the school and parent community, want our children to be safe and happy and our goal is to give them secure environment that helps them to blossom into responsible human beings.

Dear Parent,

There is little doubt that the internet is influencing the way we think, both obviously and subtly. It has the maximum impact on young minds, whose curiosity lures them to explore forbidden areas on the internet, including games that have been proven to be dangerous and even fatal. Recently, the game “BLUE WHALE”, which has reportedly been linked to hundreds of teen deaths across the world, claimed its latest victim closer home, a young teen in Mumbai.

This game requires the participants to carve the figure of a whale on some part of their body.The gamekeeper sets the kids 50 challenges, many of them involving hurting themselves, and culminating in committing suicide.If a person fails to complete a challenge, personal information that was stolen earlier is used to defame the person.The children are encouraged to lose out on sleep as every challenge has to be filmed and shared as “proof” with the curator.

We request you to recognize the urgency of the situation and talk to your ward about responsible use of the internet and cyber security. Keeping a check on their internet usage and activities can ensure that they are not getting addicted to such games which may harm them.

Dear Parent,

Change is an inevitable part of life and an important ingredient of progress. The academic session this yearbegan with a change in leadership, when Ms Mallika Preman took over as Principal, Ms Trinu Jain as Senior School Headmistress and Ms Geeta Oberai as Junior School Headmistress.

Recently, however, the Principal of the East of Kailash campus had to resign due to ill health. Consequently, Ms Preman has been transferred to take charge of that school as Principal.

In our Vasant Vihar school, the two headmistresses will assistme in monitoring the academic and co-curricular activities, till a new Principal is appointed. I assure you that the standards set so far will be maintained and the school will only grow stronger and more successful.

I appreciate your unconditional support and unhesitating encouragement whenever it has been required, and look forward to your continued cooperation and confidence in the school. As Tagoreans, we will, I am confident, cross many more milestones in the coming years.

Thank you

The monsoon has brought with it a host of illnesses, including Dengue. We ensure that fogging and fumigation is regularlycarried out in school.

July’17

Dear Parents,

We have always endeavoured to provide your ward a secure environment in the school. This, however, is not possible without your cooperation. We would like to remind you of a few points that we have mentioned in the past too.

  1.  If your ward travels by a private van, please ensure that the van is well maintained, and running on CNG and NOT on LPG. The van driver and conductor have to be licensed and experienced. Overcrowded vans are a threat to your ward’s safety, so as far as possible, try to have your ward travel by the school bus. You should also ensure that you have the telephone number and other contact details of the owner, driver and conductor of the van and the details of the route covered by the van. In case your ward travels by private transport, please fill in the undertaking and send it back to the class teacher latest by Friday 14 July 2017.
  2.  We appreciate that in response to our previous reminders, a large number of parents now park their cars away from the school and encourage their wards to walk to the school gate. However, there are still many who insist on parking in front of the gate. We would like to reiterate that the main gate is where the majority of the students enter and disperse and thus it is necessary that the approach to this gate be kept free and open, for the safety of students.
  3.  The area around the school is a NO HONKING zone. We request you to refrain from blowing the horn in the vicinity of the school.

As role models for the students, it is imperative that we as parents and teachers conduct ourselves in a way that is exemplary.
