Walking flowers may sound strange and unbelievable but at AMIS we witnessed this wonderful phenomenon on November 30th 2016 as the Pre-primary children celebrated ‘Flowers Day’ and adorned themselves with beautiful flowers and spread fragrance wherever they walked. We were amazed to see the creativity of parents who dressed their children in accessories like flower earrings, tie, belt, chain, wreath, head gear, bracelets, key chain, skirts, flower embroidered jacket, caps, hats, wands etc.  Mother’s love for flowers and its spiritual significance was briefly explained.  The didi’s along with the children were thrilled to learn the names of different flowers, for it was not from text book but experiential learning.  The children happily took part in different activities which was aimed at developing their sensorial skills.  Each child was given a rose at the end of the day to be given to person, whom they wanted to express gratitude.

On 24th November, the pre-primary sections (LKG and UKG) went to the lush, tree-covered Jayprakash Narayan Biodiversity Park near in North West Bangalore for their annual picnic.
Two buses with excited children, Didis, and Aunties left for the biodiversity park at 9.30 am.  The children enjoyed their walk through the park which is known for having many different varieties of trees and shrubs spread over 85 acres.
The children viewed the prominent displays of village life put up at the park.   After spending time close to nature, playing in the kids area and eating their snacks, the kids returned to school by 2.30 pm.
They were invigorated after spending an entire morning outdoors.
