Dear Parent


Each student in Class VI is required to study THREE languages viz. English, Hindi and Sanskrit / French / German. English is the first language and Hindi is the second language which each student HAS to study. For the third language, the school offers Sanskrit, French and German as the options.  A student can opt for any ONE out of the three languages i.e. Sanskrit, French or German. They have to be certain of their choice as they will have to study the same language from Classes VI to VIII and no change at a later date or class will be possible.  It is mandatory to secure 33% marks in the third language in classes VI to VIII, in order to be eligible for promotion to the next class. As we have limited seats in French / German and these languages require proficiency in the English language, it is mandatory for students to perform well in English throughout the session. The school has set eligibility criteria which are mentioned below for the allotment of the third language:

  • To be eligible to study French/German in middle school, the student should secure an A grade in each area of English assessment (Comprehension, Spelling & Vocabulary and Assignment) in ALL THREE TERMS in Class V.  
  • An eligibility test will be conducted in February 2021 for all students who qualify as per the above criteria.
  • The final decision, however, will rest with the English language teacher and the Principal based on the grades and the marks secured in the eligibility test.

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 second and the third language studied in Classes VI-VIII and availability of seats. 

Kindly click on the link  https://forms.gle/L5UdiUEjTFtsHxog9  to give your consent of having read the circular and understood the contents.

The last date to submit the form is Monday, 10 August 2020 by 1700 hours.

Dear Parent

We sincerely hope that your ward has settled in the stream and subject(s) opted by her/him. It has been noticed that some students of Class XI request for a 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 (subject to availability of the seats in the same), she/he should do so before Thursday, 30 July 2020. After this, NO CHANGE IN SUBJECT OR STREAM WILL BE ENTERTAINED either in Class XI or later 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.

  • It has also been observed that there is a drastic drop in students’ academic performance in Class XI. Students tend to take academics lightly in Class XI which not only affects their grades in XI, but it also has an impact on their Class XII result. In case your ward is planning to go abroad for her/his higher studies, we would like to inform you that colleges require the mark sheet of Class XI along with all internal and external examinations of Class XII. We would advise you to guide your ward about the importance of academic grades of Class XI so that your ward does not have to face disappointment at the end of the session.
  • In case your ward wants to opt for a sixth subject, she/he will have to study the subject on her/his own. She/he will have to appear for the Mid Term and the End Term Examination and secure a minimum of 33% marks (separately in theory and practicals) to be eligible to continue with the subject in Class XII. However, it will not have any bearing on her/his promotion to Class XII and neither can be considered in case she/he fails to secure minimum 33% in one of the main five subjects.

The conditions for a student to be eligible to be promoted to class XII are as follows:

  1. In order to be declared as having passed Class XI Examination, a student MUST obtain a minimum of 33% marks in each of the five subjects.
  2. In case of subjects with a practical component, the student must obtain 33% marks in theory and 33% in practical separately to qualify in that subject.
  3. It is mandatory for a student to pass in English for promotion to the next class. If she/he scores less than 33% in English, she/he will be detained in Class XI.
  4. If a student scores less than 33% in onesubject, it will be considered as a compartment. The student will have to write the compartment examination within two weeks of the declaration of the result and score above 33% for promotion to the next class.
  5. If a student scores less than 33% in two or more subjects, she/he will be detained in Class XI. NO REQUEST FOR PROMOTION ON CONDITIONAL BASIS WILL BE ENTERTAINED. ALSO, NO CHANGE OF SUBJECT WILL BE PERMITTED IN CLASS XIINO LENIENCY WILL BE SHOWN TOWARDS ANY CHILD FOR PROMOTION TO CLASS XII.

Dear Parent

CBSE has introduced Two Levels of Assessment in Mathematics in Class X - Mathematics Standard and Mathematics Basic (curriculum being the same, the assessment of Basic Mathematics will be of an easier level as compared to Mathematics Standard).

To acquaint you more about the two levels of Mathematics introduced by CBSE during session 2019-2020, the syllabus, classroom teaching and internal assessment for both levels will remain the same to allow the students to study the whole range of topics throughout the year; however, testing will be different. We also wish to inform you that Mathematics Standard will be meant for students who wish to pursue Mathematics in their +2 level whereas Mathematics Basic will be for the students who are not keen on pursuing Mathematics at higher levels.  The school will offer two levels of assessment during the Pre Board examination/ Revision examination, as and when we are able to conduct.

Kindly note that students who would like to pursue Science,  Commerce and Humanities with Mathematics in Classes XI & XII will have to compulsorily appear for Mathematics Standard in their Board examination to be conducted in March 2021.

Students will have to make a choice to opt for the level of Mathematics they would like to appear for in the Board Examination and the same has to be submitted to CBSE at the time of submission of List of Candidates (LoC) by the school in the month of September 2020. We request you to discuss with your ward her/ his choice of Mathematics Standard or Basic for Board Examination-2021. No request for a change will be entertained once you have submitted your ward's preference.

Kindly send your ward's preference by clicking on the given form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1H_iOHGqyCLCu_TnJ5g-2RbaCewDhL7iSoWMHSY4OThE/edit

CYBER SAFETY POLICY

 

Bullying in any form is strictly prohibited inside or outside the school premises and no such act will go unnoticed or unpunished” 


 

This Cyber Safety Policy of Tagore International School East of Kailash, explains the desired Student Code of Conduct. This policy is to engage all students, teaching and non-teaching staff   and parents in an effort against cyber bullying, as part of the moral and administrative fabric of the school.

 Our school has an obligation to provide a safe, secure and caring environment. We maintain a zero tolerance policy towards bullying of students and staff, either using technology or otherwise.

  • ensure that they do not log in using a fake identity.
  • report any communications which are inappropriate, to parent/guardians or a teacher, when ICT equipment devices are used out of school time.

THE PARENT WILL

  • explain the “internet use permission form” to their ward/s.
  • support the school in encouraging responsible use of ICT equipment/devices by their ward.

SCHOOL BASED ACTIONS AND CONSEQUENCES

Ø  If a student is found to be involved in any misconduct, it will be considered as an informed decision / choice made by the student to engage in such activity. It will NOT be considered as a mistake.  Following action will be taken in such situations:
  • Oral/written warning.

Dear Parent

Greetings from TIS, EoK!

We sincerely hope that you are safe and are staying indoors. It has been a long time since we have had an interaction with you. Had we been living in normal circumstances, things would've been different. As was planned, school would have reopened for your ward on the 7th of April 2020. But as we struggle to come to terms with these circumstances where a pandemic of this magnitude has derailed the best of planning in the whole world, we are looking for ways and means to minimize the academic loss for our students.

With this intent, we are proceeding ahead with the academic session for Class XI from Monday, 20 April 2020.

Your ward has been allotted a stream/subjects as per her/his eligibility for it keeping in mind the Pre-board result and the internal assessments. We reiterate that if your ward gets the required marks as per the eligibility criteria when the CBSE Board result is declared, we will look into requests for changes, subject to availability of seats.

One of our best practices in the past years has been that of extending an opportunity to students to explore Science, Commerce and Humanities streams as per their eligibility to know the finer nuances of the subjects. So the plan for the first two days of Class XI is a 'Virtual Walk into a Classroom'. The teachers will be happy to take their queries.

The plan is as follows:

Also note that students can opt for the sixth subject once the school reopens for the session. They will be permitted to take the sixth subject only on the following conditions:

  • They will have to study the subject on their own. There will be no classes conducted for the sixth subject.
  • Students will have to appear for the half yearly and final examination in the sixth subject. Schedule for the same will be shared with students along with the Mid term exam and End Term Examination.
  • Students will have to secure a passing grade in these exams to be eligible to continue with the same in class XII.

We sincerely hope that the endeavour of the school to bring a better understanding of subjects for which your ward is eligible and 'A Virtual Walk into a Classroom' will be a fruitful exercise for your ward to discover her/his calling.

Dear Parent

We hope that you and your family are safe and coping well during this period of lockdown.

This is a very challenging time for all of us; we have to ensure that the students do not miss out on their academics, and on the other hand you are also getting an opportunity to engage with your children and spend quality time with them. This is a new experience for all of us - I would like to call it a ‘New Normal’.

You have already received the detailed circular about our academic plan during this lockdown period. I would like to further bring to your notice the following points:

ACADEMIC PRORGRAMMES:

  • For classes VI to XII - Our faculty of the senior school has remained in contact with their students through online classes. Students are also being given online assessments, and based on the results of these assessments teachers are conducting remedial classes too. We have received appreciation from many of you, and it is indeed a matter of pride for us that the students are benefitting from these classes.
  • For classes I to V - Our teachers of junior school have been sending study material, links of videos, and their recorded lessons along with regular exercise schedule prepared by our sports department. The students are given skill-based assessments – cognitive, creative, and scientific and thinking skill tasks, prepared by the teachers. Students and parents have appreciated the efforts of the teachers and have been sending appreciation emails.

CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES:

  • Recognizing that the students must be having time on their hands at present, and especially to keep them engaged over the weekend, very soon students of Classes VI to VIII will be given Activity sheets (on Fridays). They will be fun exercises to test them on General Awareness, Creativity, Vocabulary, and Numeracy skills.
  • Besides conducting academic activities, school has also started participating in various inter-school events. Our students of classes VI to VIII participated in an online debate competition organized by UNESCO and Brainwiz. Zaid Sidiqui of class VI D qualified for the finals.
  • Our students of class XI participated in a quiz competition, and Shoptik Roy and Lakshika Khurana of class XI, and Dhruv Kaushik Thakker of class X, qualified for the finals of Quizinteen.
  • Students have also been engaged in creating various awareness videos, which has got appreciation from various forums. You may check the school’s social media handles (https://instagram.com/tagore_eok & Tagore International School East of Kailash Facebook page, and school you tube link) to see the videos.
  • Many students of class XI have registered for an orientation course on Non Violent Communication, organised by Gandhi Smrit & tGelf, which is the need of the hour. Students of classes X to XII also have been sent information about online internship by MIT and Harvard University.
  • Our teachers have been attending various online workshops on puppetry, mathematical skills and other skill enhancement programmes.
  • We have also designed many inter-class, inter-house and inter-school activities which will be rolled out in the first week of May. In fact, the Inter House Activities for Classes VI to XII have already been put up on the Google groups and dates for the online competitions shared with the students. We expect a hearty participation. This is to give students a platform to learn from each other, besides showcasing their talents.

At the end, I would like to thank you parents for your continued support. Your letters of appreciation have helped our staff stay motivated during these challenging times. We have realized the value of technology as an important tool to stay connected with our students and will make constructive use of it in future too.

We look forward to more fruitful interactions and feedback from you.

Glimpses of our online teaching

Stay Safe !
