Glenrich Credits and Consequences Chart (CAC) – Grades 3 to 12 | Please Share Your Thoughts

Dear Students and Parents, (Grades 3-12) A significant part of the vision of the Glenrich School, Dhaka focuses on developing a “Growth Mindset” in all its staff and students. Please learn more about the growth mindset from Carol Dweck here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiiEeMN7vbQ. We believe in continuous improvement in our policies, procedures and approaches (Kaizen technique: https://tinyurl.com/4shfjfae). Based on the suggestions received from teachers and parents, we have come up with a refined tool “Credits and Consequences Chart” (CAC) to help our students to be responsible and disciplined in their actions and behaviour. We encourage our students’ actions and behaviour which help them to succeed in their lives and enable them to make a difference in society. We discourage actions and behaviour which do not add value to their lives and deprive them of opportunities to excel. “Credits and Consequences” (CAC) is a list of rewards, recognitions for desirable actions and consequences for all unacceptable actions and behaviours. Consequences should not be perceived as punishments, instead, they should be looked at as reformatory measures taken by the school which discourage the repetition of unacceptable behaviour and encourage the students to reform themselves.  Please find the 7th draft of the CAC in the attachment and scrutinize the same. We seek your suggestions to refine it further before implementing it on 1st September 2022 for grades 3-12. Please write to the Principal and the segment heads with your suggestions, feedback and objections (if any) within the 30th of August. In case of not receiving your feedback from respective students and parents, we will presume that you welcome the implementation of CAC in its proposed form. We hope that the implementation of CAC will improve focus and discipline and enhance the drive to excel in our students.   We look forward to hearing from you.    Grades 3-4 students and parents please write to:  Head of Junior School, Ms Sumona Karim, [email protected] Head of Primary, Syeda Rumana Hossain, [email protected] Grades 5-8 students and parents please write to:  Head of Lower Secondary, Ms Kumkum Habiba Jahan, [email protected] Dean of Academics Lower Secondary, Mr Ilham Adnan Alam, [email protected]   Grades 9-12 students and parents please write to:  Head of Upper Secondary, Tarana Ahmed, [email protected] Dean of Academics, Upper Secondary, Sangeeta Taunk, [email protected] Asst.

Glenrich School Fitness Card

Dear Parent We are introducing Fitness Test Reports for our students in order to enhance their physical fitness levels and wellbeing. These report cards will aid in our evaluation of the student’s fitness and help students monitor their fitness levels. After identifying their strengths and areas for improvement, we will instruct them on performing a specific workout and changing their behaviour, diet, and sleep schedule to attain optimal health. We have designed a few activities to measure their endurance, flexibility, balance, speed, and strength. We will provide the average score of the class along with the individual score on the fitness report card. Target Fitness Score with a timeline will also be added to help the students remain motivated and follow strategies to achieve the goal. We have added the BMI (Body Mass Index) percentile to check the overall fitness of our students. Please find attached the sample fitness card for the students and two videos from the Junior and Senior sections which will give you an overview of our planning and procedure for the same. If you do not feel comfortable with the above process for your child, please feel free to share your concerns. We will exempt your child from the fitness tests.
