Dear parent,

It is important to understand that choosing a career does not mean, simply deciding upon the ultimate career profile. Rather, a person should have the potential to grow with that career and achieve success. Every career option requires a particular aptitude combination that should match with the person's potential ability to grow with that career.  An Aptitude Test helps the student determine what her / his abilities are best suited for. The school, in collaboration with Centre For Career Development, is organising an interest profiling test and one to one counselling sessions for students of class X. This will include:

1. An interest profiling test to identify possible career options. It is a 2 ½ hour test which does not require any preparation and will be administered on Wednesday 28 December 2016 in school. 

2. A one to one session at the school with the student and the parents to:

    • assess academic performance and potential.
    • analyse strengths and weaknesses.
    • detail out career options and make specific career choices
    • work out the subject streams and combinations
    • recommend future course of action.

3. The registration fee for the entire program is ₹ 1250/- to be paid in cash. 

 

Please note that the subject stream selection of your ward will depend on the cut off specified for each stream as informed by circular no TIS/VV/2016-17/033 dated April 2016. The result of this aptitude test will not have any bearing on the stream allotted by the school. 

If you are interested in your ward taking this interest profiling test, please send the registration fee in cash, along with the consent slip, latest by Friday 16 December 2016.

FOUNDATION COURSE IN SCIENCE AND MATH

Dear Parents 

The importance of fundamentals in Science and Math cannot be overemphasized, and a clear understanding of concepts in these subjects play a pivotal role when a student steps out into the domain of higher education and then into the professional world. In fact all competitive, aptitude and professional exams lik  NTSE, JEE, AIIMS, AFMC, CAT, GMAT, SAT etc have a significant component focussing on the fundamentals. Hence the need of the hour is to build a strong fundamental base. Keeping this in mind, the school, in collaboration with PACE – IIT & Medical, is planning to organise foundation building sessions in Science and Math for students of class X. The focus of the programme is to:

  • hone academic skills to a professional level
  • foster out- of- the-box thinking 
  • boost confidence in order to excel in school assessment and competitive exams
  • increase levels of understanding and application of concepts
  • teach time management and stress management

Classes will commence on Monday 22 August’16 and will continue till Tuesday 24 January 2017.  The schedule for classes will be as follows:

Dear Parent,

We sincerely hope that your ward has settled in the stream and subject(s) opted for by her / him. It has been noticed that some students of class XI request for change of stream/subject after the Half Yearly examinations.   We would like to inform you that as per CBSE Examination bye- laws, a student has to study the same subject for two years (XI & XII) and therefore cannot change either the subject or the stream  in class XII.

In case your ward wants to change the subject or stream, she / he should do so before Friday 29 July 2016. After this, NO CHANGE IN SUBJECT OR STREAM WILL BE ENTERTAINED either in class XI or in class XII.  Kindly make a note of this and ensure that your ward works hard in the chosen subjects and stream to avoid the need for a change in the future.

Dear Parents

The PSAT (Preliminary SAT) is an important step in helping students identify their strengths, as they choose the  stream that will decide their career directly. Administered by the College Board, PSAT is similar in format to the SAT  (the SAT is a university admissions test taken by students as part of applications to universities in the U.S. and across the world) . For most students, PSAT is the first real exposure to a standardized multiple-choice assessment. If you are interested in your ward taking this test, please  fill the attached consent slip and send it back by Friday 13 May 2016. 

Benefits of taking the PSAT 

  • The Score Report provides a detailed performance review, helping students identify their strength/weakness areas and enabling them to adopt smarter and more effective strategies while preparing for SAT/other similar exams. 

Cost of the PSAT/NMSQT 
Registration fee for PSAT is $16 per student (fee and administrative cost) which needs to be paid by July 2016.

Exam Format and Duration 
The PSAT is a multiple-choice assessment that tests a student’s skills across Math and Evidence Based Reading and Writing. It is 2 hours and 45 minutes in length. It will be conducted in the month of November 2016. 

Preparing for the PSAT 
Coaching is NOT required/recommended for the PSAT. Students who wish to prepare can use free SAT prep resources (due to the SAT’s close alignment with the PSAT/NMSQT) on Khan Academy’s website (www.khanacademy.org/sat), developed in partnership with the College Board. A free PSAT sample test is available at https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat-suite-assessments/practice/practice-tests that students can use for practice. 

Is PSAT useful for students not interested in taking the SAT? 
Yes, even if students do not plan to take the SAT, the PSAT/NMSQT can offer very meaningful insights into a student’s skills and abilities, and also help students prepare for other similar standardized/competitive exams for India and abroad.

English, Hindi and Sanskrit / French / Mandarin.  English is the first language which each student HAS to study.  All INDIANS will study Hindi compulsorily.  Nationals of other countries will be exempted from studying Hindi as a second language.  The school offers French, Sanskrit and Mandarin as options for the third language.  All students have to opt for ONE of the three i.e. French, Sanskrit or Mandarin.  They have to be certain of their choice as they will have to study the same language for the next three years and no change at a later date or class will be possible.  It is mandatory to pass in the third language in order to be eligible for promotion to the next class. 

To be eligible to study French in middle school, the student has to score a minimum of B1 in each area of English in ALL THREE TERMS in class V. The final decision, however, will rest with the English teacher and the Principal. 

In classes IX and X, the school follows the two language formula, as per the guidelines issued by CBSE. English is compulsory and the second language will be based on the language studied in classes VI-VIII. Mandarin is not a part of the scheme of studies for secondary school (Class IX- X) as per CBSE. Thus, students who have opted for Mandarin as the third language in classes VI – VIII will have to study Hindi as the second language in  Classes IX – X.

March 2016

Dear Parent

Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything. The academic session 2015-16 saw this pulsating desire of Tagoreans taking shape in the form of their achievements. Most of our students achieved their dreams through sheer dedication while others are striving hard to live them through in the coming session. Mentioning all would not be possible here but we have tried to outline a few of them.

  • Our Breaking Barriers project launched in 2013 has grown by leaps and bounds with the members of the campaign representing their peers at the pride parade, conducting workshops and interactive sessions at various colleges, attending conferences in the United States of America and launching THRIVE- the first ever e-magazine for the LGBTQI community
  • A group of young leaders decided to work for the noble cause of helping acid attack survivors. The Flawless Flaws program was aimed at sensitizing their fellow students and the community at large towards this heinous crime. Besides creating awareness through street plays, they also generated 2.2 lakh rupees through NINAAD, a cultural extravaganza; and sale of articles made by the Art Society and Eco Club of the school. The amount collected is being used to help acid attack survivors with their rehabilitative surgeries and medication. We would like to thank ASFI and PVR who have helped make this venture a success. 
  • Kickstart Equality is another campaign spearheaded by the students of classes IX to XII, for creating gender sensitivity in collaboration with CEQUIN India. The project saw students conducting sessions for their peers and presenting plays at various forums to create awareness about the issue. 
  • Intolerance in our society has alienated many groups in the country. Our students from the North Eastern States of India decided to raise awareness about the seven sister states and underline the fact that they are as much a part of India as any of us. All class display boards and theme boards in the entire school showcased the uniqueness of the culture and people of India’s North East. Artistes from these states were invited to deliver talks on the core competencies of the region in  art, music, handloom, handicrafts, etc.
  • The members of the Art Society ‘Shrishti’ are proactively involved in various projects within and outside the school. The President and Vice President, Daniel and Shruti  Rai of Class XII –B worked on a Wall Mural at the Lounge-Bar, Kimbak-2 Connaught Place. Another Mural featuring Vincent Van Gogh's "Starry Night" was created for Jaroi Interiors, Chattarpur, Sidbhari.
  • Our students once again made a mark on the international platform when they danced to standing ovation and thunderous applause at the Joy Dancing International Children’s Meet Beijing in August’15. They presented three dances – a fusion Kathak piece, the Kalbeliya dance and a contemporary dance on Humanity. Their performances had participants from other countries wanting to learn steps of Indian dances and recording Indian music to take back home.
  • We also had a number of international visitors from China and Japan who visited India as part of our cultural exchange programme. Three students and three teachers led by Vice Principal Mr Wang Hua from Jinyuan Senior High School, our sister school in Shanghai and 11 students and two teachers from Semboku High School in Osaka, Japan visited us in August’15. Both the groups visited monuments and museums in Delhi and also went to Agra to view the Taj Mahal. While at school, they attended classes with their hosts, and learnt Indian Folk Painting and Kathak. They also participated in various activities of the school and attended classes with the host students.
  • Our examinees in the CBSE class XII Board exam 2014-2015 achieved what they had dreamt of. Eashwari Rao with 96.8% in Humanities, Sandeepan Dutta with 95.8% in Science and Kaveri Rawal with 95% in Commerce, did the school proud.

Dear Parents

In our endeavour to constantly provide our students with state-of-the-art infrastructure, every year we speculate, innovate and renovate our existing facilities. This year, we have given the auditorium on the ground floor a totally new look. From being just a multifunctional hall, it now boasts of an international design and look. The acoustics, lighting and air conditioning are all top of the line. We look forward to presenting shows for you in this Audi. The Physics and Chemistry labs have also been refurbished and made more student-friendly and modern in design. 

In academics, our students have once again made us proud at various national and international forums, just like in previous years. The CBSE results for both Class X and Class XII were excellent. In Class X, 12 students scored a perfect 10 CGPA and in Class XII 22% of our students scored above 90% aggregate.  Nearly all have been able to secure a seat in the college they wished to study at.  Four of them have secured admission in Delhi Technical University (DTU) and two in Delhi College of Art (DCA). We wish them success in their chosen fields and look forward to seeing them make a mark in the history of the world. Four students from classes V to VII have won awards at an international Photography competition in Hong Kong.

The technological and imaginative skills of our Grade V and VI students were recognised by the President and other Executive Officers of the Society of Automobile Engineers International, when they lauded them on being National Winners at the AWIM (A World in Motion) twice in a row; and also representing India at the international round in Detroit. This contest requires the students to design cars that compete in criteria like body design, speed, weight bearing capacity, ease of parking, etc. The students’ work over the years has demonstrated their ability to think out of the box.

Flying the Tagorean flag high at an international level, we had students dancing to standing ovations and encores at the Joy Dancing International Children’s Meet at Beijing, China.  They presented mesmerising items in Kathak and Kalbeliya, and a fusion of kathak and contemporary dance.  Their presentations had dancers from other countries requesting them to teach them a few steps. This month shall see groups of students and teachers visiting us from Japan and China.  The guests will stay with our students and teachers at home and attend school with them. In October, we will have a music troupe visiting from Pakistan. They shall perform for the students and parents at a cultural fiesta in school.

The newly formed Interact Club now manages all our flagship programs – Breaking Barriers- awareness about LGBTQI; Outlive Yourself – the Organ Donation initiative and Flawless Flaws – support for Acid Attack Survivors; and the Gender Sensitivity Program. These programs have helped the students identify themselves as an intrinsic part of society, and have them recognising and acknowledging their responsibilities and duties as citizens of this country. In Flawless Flaws, the students interact with survivors of acid attacks, sensitise society to their plight through nukkad nataks, make presentations to students in other schools, and collect funds to aid in the corrective surgeries required by the survivors. The proceeds from the cultural event planned for October will also add to this fund.

We are proud of all our students and it warms our hearts to see them personify the motto of school,’ I am Worthy’ wherever they are and in whatever they do. As India enters the 69th year of its independence, we are confident that the country is in safe and strong hands.   We thank you for your ungrudging support over the years and hope we keep receiving it, as it gives us the strength to stay on top.

Dear Parents

You are all familiar with the Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation that has been introduced by CBSE in Classes IX & X. The students are evaluated throughout the year on their performance in various activities based on academics and also on written Weekly Tests and Summative Assessments.

However, it has been noticed that many students do not take their Weekly Tests and Summative Assessments (Half Yearly / Final examinations) seriously and consequently they fail. I would like to emphasise here that passing in these Weekly/ Summative tests is important as these marks / grades have to be sent to CBSE. 

To ensure that every student appears for and passes in these tests, we will follow the system mentioned below-

a. Students who wish to improve their grades in the weekly test will be given a chance to do so as per the schedule shared with students.  Due to  lack of time in the first semester, the improvement examination will be conducted only for Science, Social Science and Mathematics. However students will get a chance to improve their grades in English also in the second term.  

b. Those students who score more than 91% marks have the option of not appearing for the improvement examination; however it is mandatory for others to appear for it.

c. Best of the two scores will be taken while calculating the final grades for the student

d. A lot of students take leave during the week due to a variety of reasons, which can be avoided. If a student misses any activity based assessment that day, she/he will get zero in that activity, which will consequently affect their grades at the end of Class X and also affect their subject choice for Class XI.
