Orientation Day for this academic year was held on June 4, 2016, at AMIS. The parents who joined our family this year, were greeted with welcome cards and smiling faces of didis. The programme commenced with silence, followed by Harvinder didi addressing the parents. Through an interactive session, she conveyed to them, how our school is a living experience with a joyous and friendly atmosphere, not confining the children to the walls of the classroom and catering to their physical, emotional, mental development and in the process, preparing them for a life long journey. The programme continued with Yamini didi briefing the parents about the rules and regulations of the school. This was followed by the introduction of the teachers, administration staff and the support staff. The parents were then divided into two groups. One group of parents was led to a fun filled activity where they experienced the powers of mind, which our children get to experience first thing every morning, wherein we try to develop various faculties in them, through games. The other group was led to planting of saplings, an activity which signifies that each child in AMIS is considered to be a sapling, whom we, teachers, nurture with our love and care. The day’s events concluded with refreshments and informal interaction of parents with teachers, over tea

The parenting workshop was held in AMIS, for five days, between 30th May and 3rd June, 2016, for the parents who became a part of the AMIS family, this academic year. Generally the expectation from a parenting workshop is to enhance parenting skills but the one conducted at AMIS, not only helped parents to better their skills at raising their children but also focused on enriching personal growth of each parent, as individuals. Chitra Jha, the facilitator of the workshop and Harvinder didi created an interactive forum to introspect our styles of parenting. Chitra Jha shared her personal experiences as a parent, as examples and various crucial and delicate aspects of parenting like providing food for our children, setting boundaries and the effect of our exposure to media, were dealt with at length, through intimate and extensive discussions. At the end of five day session, parents felt enriched and enlightened to embark on their beautiful journey of parenting which stems from personal growth.

In AMIS, workshops for teachers are organised regularly.  Between 23rd May and 25th May, 2016, all the teachers of AMIS had the third session of a series of extensive workshops on theatre and the Pre-Primary teachers also had the third session of Art & Craft workshop, out a series of three workshops.  Having covered the basics of theatre, in the earlier two workshops, this time Ravi Shankar ji, our resource person for theatre from Pondicherry, introduced us to a higher level of theatre, wherein we experienced how from a thought, which we feel strongly about, we can ourselves come up with a script and then move on to creating a whole theatrical presentation with dialogues, songs and props and thus through theatrics.

Mrs. Kiran, our resource person from Pondicherry for art and craft, had already shared some simple yet valuable tips on how art and craft is not only about creativity but it also helps in enhancing the fine motor skills, confidence, focus and concentration of the children, in the previous two sessions.  In this session, we learnt the art of making of human masks out of Plaster of Paris.  She also shared various ways in which we can adapt this art based on the age of our children and recreate the masks with our children, in our classes.  We also made beautiful things out of simple and easily available things like pebbles and coloured papers.
