3rd June 2017
The new session 2017-18 in Auro Mirra International School began with its Orientation Programme which was an ice-breaker for parents of the new students.
In this programme parents learnt about the unique approach of Auro Mirra and were informed about the rules and regulations to be followed. Teachers were introduced to them and they enjoyed and appreciated the SAPLING activity thoroughly.
The afternoon Orientation session was attended by the parents of the tiny tots who graduated from Pre-Primary to Primary. They were made aware of the changes that their children will be coming across in Class 1 as it is a giant leap for them.
29th May to 2nd June 2017
In Auro Mirra International School, a proactive session involving parents to give them an understanding of the methods the school adopts towards facilitating learning in a child was conducted from 29 May 2017 to 2 June 2017. The sessions were very successful in getting parents deeply involved, inspired and interested in their children’s education. They were also offered glimpses of how integral learning takes place at AMIS. Parents who remained active participants throughout the course of the workshop were transformed and instilled with so much enthusiasm, confidence and trust that they had had made the right choice in selecting AMIS for their child.
Oh yes! The very special school where the child learns and is not taught!!!
Parents also posed some thought provoking and challenging questions, to which they received convincing and effective responses and suggestions, and got their doubts clarified satisfactorily.
The beginning of the New Year is always a time of excitement where one comes back with an open mind to absorb all that is good. The new academic year began with a 10-day workshop for the teachers from 22-27th May facilitated by Harvinder didi and Yamini didi. The first day was an introduction to the working of the school. Proactive methods for facilitating the overall development of children were brought to light. It was a very intelligent outlook on leadership and child centric facilitation. On 23rd we were left to ponder upon what a question is? We came to understand that enabling a child to ask a question is much more effective and a potential transforming tool. Then an effective method was introduced to us i.e. Integral project, to help us integrate different aspects of the curriculum in one assignment on the 24th which was facilitated by Yamini didi. The second half was conducted by Harvinder didi where our minds were opened to the power of listening. The next day dawned with we being given the task to work on the project in detail. We were allowed to find information for ourselves and research on the various topics given to us. We presented them to Yamini didi, Harvinder Didi and to other teachers. We critically analyzed each other’s work for the betterment of our approach. The last day session was based on “powers within games” which is played every morning. We were introduced to different kinds of simple games all the while keeping in mind their importance. These games included cone grab, pick and drop, reach the sky etc.
