Harvinder didi who facilitated “Natural Holistic Learning Workshop” began the session by asking thought provoking questions like – Why schools are required? What did we learn from our parents? Do we remember our 3rd or 5th grade marks? These questions by itself paved the way to look at education in a different perspective.

The first step towards Integral Project was the brain storming session and parents got a glimpse of how to interlink a topic to its various subjects.  The three principles of Sri Aurobindo “Nothing can be taught” “Mind must be consulted in its own growth” “To work from the near to far” opened a forum towards understanding the role of a parent and teacher towards a child’s journey.

जैसा की हम सभी जानते हैं कि संगीत की कोई भाषा नहीं होती| इंसान किसी भी भाषा का हो संगीत के प्रभाव से अछूता नहीं रह पाता और संगीत के इसी खास अनोखे आकर्षण की वजह से कोई भी भाषा संगीत प्रेमी के लिए रूकावट नहीं हो सकती|
संगीत की इसी जादूई विशेषता को ध्यान में रखते हुए औरो मीरा की हिंदी अध्यापिकाओं के लिए हरविंदर दीदी द्वारा एक कार्यशाला आयोजित की गयी| कार्यशाला का मुख्य उद्देश्य ये समझना था कि कैसे संगीत (गायन) द्वारा हम हिंदी भाषा को सीखना और अधिक रुचिकर व् आसान बना सकते हैं| कार्यशाला के दौरान अध्यापिकाओं ने ये जाना कि कैसे हिंदी के गीतों के सुंदर बोलों के द्वारा न केवल हम बच्चों का उच्चारण शुद्ध करने में सहायता कर सकते हैं बल्कि भाषा व्याकरण का अभ्यास भी करा सकते हैं, जैसे मुहावरे, विलोम शब्द, पर्यायवाची आदि|
कार्यशाला का प्रारंभ श्रुति के महत्त्व की चर्चा से हुआ| अध्यापिकाओं ने समझा कि कैसे किसी भी भाषा को सीखने की प्रक्रिया में श्रुति अर्थात सुनना कितना महत्वपूर्ण है| अतः कहने का सार यह है कि भाषा किस रूप में व् किस प्रक्रिया से सीखी जा रही है| दीदी के मार्गदर्शन से अध्यापिकाओं ने गीतों की एक सारणी भी बनायीं जिसे वे अपने पाठ्यक्रम में इस्तेमाल करके हिंदी शिक्षण को अधिक प्रभावशाली व् रुचिकर बना सकती हैं|

As the entire campus was lavishly decorated with the tricolours, we at AMIS celebrated the 70th Independence Day of our nation. The programme kicked off by Harvinder didi hoisting the tricolour flag, as we all saluted the flag. The beautiful coincidence of Sri Aurobindo’s birthday was remembered and cherished by the students of AMIS. Starting with a brief introduction on the significance of Independence and on the life and philosophy of Sri Aurobindo, a number of splendid cultural and sporting displays were performed by the students of different classes. The dumbbell was the cynosure display for the entire crowd. The programme concluded with a beautiful interaction by Harvinder didi with the students.

Children love reciting poems with rhyme, rhythm, actions and colourful props. Poetry week was held in Auro Mirra from August 1, 2016 to August 6, 2016. It was a joy to see how each child thoroughly enjoyed reciting their poems in various languages, with actions and expressions, before their school mates. It was especially delightful to see and hear the tiny tots of Pre-Primary, recite the poems in their adorable demeanor and expressions. Each child was encouraged with a big round of applause by the patient audience. Through this poetry week, the children had a chance to explore the various elements of poetry and this helped in developing in them the confidence to face a larger audience. For a few, it also served as an inspiration to tap their creative sides and to come up with their own poems.
