Parent Enrichment Program (PEP)
28th July 2018
In everyday life we tend to, consciously or unconsciously, ignore listening. Listening creates a higher sense of awareness along with the ability to identify and accept change. The P.E.P. session conducted on 28th July by Kevin Rodrigues focused on how music becomes an important part of integral education. Besides bringing joy and excitement to children, music becomes an apt medium to teach various disciplines of education like poetry, social science, psychology and science. It also aids in building one’s vocabulary. Parents began the session by taking a simple listening test and were then guided through a 20 minute vocal warm up which included breathing exercises that pushed them to their limits. A discussion on communicating with children followed next. The session concluded with a passionate rendering of the song “Stop crying your heart out” by the music teacher. It was a musical session that imparted knowledge and infused in everyone a strong vibe of positive energy.

Wonderful performances by all the parents. From the beginning “The lonely Goatherd from The Sound of Music to Mile Sur Mera Tumhara” all the shows were enthralling and even the little ones did not leave for their short break. The audience was glued to their seat.
It kept the children, diyas and the support staff mesmerised. To us diyas, it was nostalgic. The children were involved as well, making them feel special and glad to be a part of such a wonderful morning. Thank you parents!
16th to 23rd July 2018
The ‘Poetry Week’ began on a high note as students from the pre-primary to primary participated enthusiastically in learning and delivering poems eloquently from 16th to 23rd July 2018. There were group as well as individual presentations in English, Hindi, Kannada and Sanskrit. Children came dressed up as characters in the poem and used beautiful props and models to add to the visual appeal of their presentations. The cute expressions and sweet voices of children from LKG and UKG stole everyone’s heart. For students of grades 1, 2 and 3, this was an opportunity to showcase their recitation skill. They readily learnt new poems on varied themes and recited them confidently. Students from grades 4 to 8 took to reciting some humorous and narrative poems which involved skilful acting and recitation. In all, the poetry week at AMIS was a grand success enjoyed thoroughly by everyone.
