Dear Parents

We are celebrating our Founder’s Day on Friday, 30 November and Saturday, 01 December’18 at 5:30 p.m. in the school premises.  We will be presenting our school production - ‘The Jungle Book’, the well loved work of renowned author,  Sir Rudyard Kipling - in a brilliant new version, as never seen before. 

The enthralling tale, set in India, tells of a village child Mowgli, who gets lost in the jungle, grows up in the care of the wild, and then discovers his human connections.  As he explores, discovers and learns new lessons each day in his desperate search for an identity, he experiences the best and the worst features of both, Animal and Man.  Our daringly different version uses a tapestry of dialogue, song, dance, audio and visual spectacle, to bring the tale to life and delight and captivate our audience.

Students from Classes III to XI are participating in it.  We hope to see all of you attend the show and applaud the young performers.  The invite to the presentation will be sent to you soon.

We would like you to take a note of the following:

  1. Saturdays 17 and 24 November 2018 will be practice Saturdays. Only the participants will come to school from 8 am till 12:30 pm.  The school buses will run as usual on these two days. The participants can use the school bus these days even if they travel on their own, otherwise.  The students should carry a light snack with them.
  2. The complete winter uniform has to be worn compulsorily by all students from Monday, 19 November 2018. The students can wear the school sweater, blazer and trousers even now if they feel cold.  Please ensure that your ward has the winter uniform ready by Saturday, 17 November 2018.

Dear Parent,

The city of Delhi is a seamless blend of the old and the new. It is a gem with many facets, where modern thought is juxtaposed with traditional opinion. Delhi’s past has played an extremely important role in shaping it’s future. Therefore, it is imperative that our children know, understand and appreciate their roots.

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 V 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 Parent

At TIS, we aim to provide the best education combined with an ideal career plan for your ward. However, to identify the aptitude and interest of a child is not easy. Even if the child’s aptitude is known, there are various other factors which need to be considered before a career decision is taken.

Keeping these concerns in mind, we would like to offer a career assessment program-CAP which is a scientific tool developed by expert psychologists and approved by National Psychological Corporation. It will provide adequate guidance to you and your ward to decide the right stream, course and career path in accordance with her / his abilities and personality.

The Career Assessment Program will have these stages:

  • Stage 1: CAP Test – which is a form of psychometric test, based upon most recent parameters of testing the skills and abilities. It is designed by experts with years of experience in related field.
  • Stage 2: Report Card – individually showcasing the student’s personality trait, aptitude score and career interest area.
  • Stage 3: Personal Counseling of students – where Counselors guide students based on their Report Book and help them chart a career path.
  • The registration fee for the program is ` 500/- to be paid in cash.
  • Day and Date of the test: Friday,26 October 2018 from 8-10 am
  • The individual counselling date and time will be informed to you later.

 

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 Monday, 15 October 2018.

Dear Parent 

 

Being challenged in life is inevitable, but being defeated is optional.  This is the mantra that every Tagorean carries when they leave the portals of this school.  These challenges often present themselves to us as an institution too. You have been witness to the recent changes in the teaching faculty for Class IV. For the first time in 46 years, TIS has seen such volatility for any class. Physical injuries, personal losses and job transfers of spouses, all played truant with the continuity of the teachers in class IV. However, we have been fortunate to have found good replacements always.Now again, physical inability will see the current Hindi teacher, Ms.Ekta Jaiswal, hand over charge to a new teacher with immediate effect.

You, as parents, have always been our grounding force and our greatest strength. Once again, I look to you to stand by us at this time, so that the transition for the students is smooth and hassle-free. I reiterate that the students’ welfare is of paramount consideration for us, and we shall endeavor to never let you down on that front.

Dear Parent

Technology has become an inseparable part of our lives. Children of today have access to a variety of online games. With the increase in internet and mobile usage by children, online games addiction has become more prominent.

We want to make you aware about online games like Fortnite, Momo Challenge and many others. These are highly addictive and continuous exposure to such games is hampering the children’s mental development. It is leading to an increase in aggressive behavior, which can be fatal, and decrease in the level of their pro-social interactions.

The Momo challenge consists of a variety of self-harming dares, which become increasingly risky as the game progresses and finally culminates in a suicide challenge. The game involves challenges that encourage teenagers/children /and any other user to engage in a series of violent acts.

Fortnite is a free-to-play online game where up to a hundred players can play at one time. Players are asked to scavenge supplies, build structures and find weapons to eliminate each other, until one person is left. Players can play alone or in teams, and can opt for audio chat with their teammates who, most of the time, are strangers.

We request you to talk to your ward about responsible use of the internet and about cyber security. Keeping a constant check on their internet usage and online activities will ensure that they are not falling prey to such games.

Dear Parent,

This is with reference to the ban on the use of steel/ metal water bottles in the school. It is a well thought of decision, taken due to multiple incidents of injuries incurred by students due to these bottles. We hope you will understand and appreciate that the decision was taken to ensure the safety of majority of the students. The health concerns, which may arise due to the usage of plastic water bottles, were discussed with various groups of parents. After a market survey, it was found that there is an array of high grade BPA free water bottles easily available which are not harmful. Also, the school provides safe and cold drinking water in the water coolers, throughout the day. The students can drink water or fill their bottles whenever they feel the need.

We solicit your support and cooperation to make the school premises safe for all.

Dear Parent,

At Tagore International School, we strive to provide a safe environment for our students. Considerable care is taken to make the school a safe haven for your ward. It has been noticed lately that metal water bottles are becoming a threat to the safety and security of our students. Some students have been found throwing these steel bottles at each other, resulting in unpleasant consequences. These incidents have forced the school authorities to ban all steel and metal water bottles hereafter. All these metal bottles, if brought to school, will be confiscated. Kindly arrange for an appropriate water bottle for your ward so that the campus continues to be a joyful place for the students.

Dear Parent,

We sincerely hope that your ward has settled in Class XI and is comfortable with the stream/ subject(s) that she/he has opted for. We would like to inform you that no change in stream/ subject(s) will be allowed after Fri. 27 July 2018. As per CBSE guidelines your ward has to study the same subjects for two years. Therefore, no request for change will be entertained after the above mentioned date.

It has 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, but also impacts their class XII result. Class XI result is equally important, if your ward is applying for admission to universities abroad.

We would like to advise you to guide your ward about the importance of academic grades in class XI so that she/he does not face disappointment at the end of the session.

For a student to be eligible for promotion to class XII:

  1. She / he must secure a minimum of 33% in each of the five subjects. In case of subjects involving practical work, she / he must obtain 33% marks in theory and 33% in practical separately.
  1. 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.
  1. If she / he scores less than 33% in one subject, it will be considered as ‘compartment’. The student will have to write the ‘compartment’ exam within two weeks of declaration of the result and score above 33% for promotion to the next class.
  1. If she / he scores less than 33% in two or more subjects, she/he will be detained in class XI.
  1. If she / he opts for a sixth subject, it is mandatory for the student to secure 33% marks in Half Yearly and the Final examinations to continue with that subject in Class XII.

NO REQUEST FOR PROMOTION TO CLASS XII WILL BE ENTERTAINED AT THE END OF THE YEAR IF THE ABOVE CRITERIA IS NOT MET.

Please note that there is an orientation session scheduled for parents and students on Saturday 21 July 2018 at 9 am to explain the academic system to you.  It is mandatory for you to attend the orientation.  Please be punctual

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 have been emphasized in the past too.

  1. If your ward travels in a private van, please ensure
  • the van is well maintained, running on CNG and NOT on LPG.
  • if it is a CNG van, there should be NO SEAT above the CNG cylinder.
  • the van driver and conductor should be license holder, experienced and have police verification report.
  • there is a conductor and a lady attendant in the van.
  • the driver is in a proper uniform and carrying his I Card (given by the owner).
  • that at no point the driver / conductor is under the influence of alcohol.
  • there has been a check on how old the van is and van is in good condition.
  • there is a fire extinguisher and complete first aid kit in the van.
  • 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 are with you.
  • you are at the van stand five minutes(bothways) to avoid confusion / mishap.

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. In case your ward travels by private transport, please fill in the undertaking and send it back to the class teacher latest by Monday 23 April’2018

  1. 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.
  1. 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.

Circular for class V

Dear Parents,

                                               

Each student in class VI is required to study THREE languages viz. 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 languages studied in classes VI-VIII i.e. either Sanskrit / Hindi / French; they can choose one of the three as their second language. 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.

Dear Parents,

We are writing this circular to you in order to explain our fees and why they increase once every year.

The regular annual increase in fees of 10% goes towards the cost of inflation as well as increase of staff salaries thrice a year, inclusive of two dearness allowance and one annual increment every year,  as announced by the Govt.  All maintenance expenses become more expensive too because of inflation every year. The introduction of GST has unfortunately resulted in a further sharp increase in the cost of all services as well as of most items purchased by us on a regular basis.

It is very pertinent to mention here that we, as a Private School, are bound under law to pay the Central Govt Pay Scales, which are quite high as compared to the job market. The Govt, once every 10 years, holds a Pay Commission to decide the new pay scales.

The most recent such announcement took place wef from 1/1/16. The pay structure for all staff was revised as per the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission. You would be pleased to know that we have started paying the Seventh Pay Commission salaries without increasing the fees by an additional 15% which the schools have been allowed to do. Instead, we have managed within the normal 10% hike. (In today’s date, our salaries have increased by approx. 40% over the previous level.)

We believe in setting high standards of education, and this is only possible by selecting the best of the teachers available. Everything comes with a cost and to ensure the quality of teaching staff it is imperative to pay them salaries commensurate with their experience and credentials.

Our fee structure is one of the lowest in Delhi, keeping in mind the infrastructure and facilities provided to the students. We have state of the art computer labs with one computer per student, the latest software, licensed and original. We have a fully functional robotics lab and students have been winning accolades in various robotics competitions. All our class rooms are fitted with LCD projectors and smart boards and we have a very active Computer Aided Learning programme. Regular training and capacity building programmes are organized for teachers to keep them updated with the latest technology and teaching methodology. Our students have been making us proud in various academic and co-curricular competitions only because of the kind of facilities we provide in the school.

It is our earnest endeavour to provide students with the best resources and we can very proudly say that our parents have been very supportive in the development of the school and have always helped us in implementing the rules for the benefit of the students.

We sincerely hope the above explanation puts all your questions and doubts you may have had, to rest.

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.
