Core team

The management of the school is under the guidance of Sri Aurobindo Society at Puducherry.

Mr. Pradeep Narang
Chairman, Sri Aurobindo Society, Puducherry.

Born in an industrial family, Shri Pradeep Narang went into business after having completed Masters in Economics and looked after the family sugar mills and ancillary industries for two decades.

However, having been drawn to the teachings of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother he came to Puducherry in 1982. With something in him touched to the core, he decided to dedicate himself to spreading the light of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother in various ways, giving up business totally thereafter. In retrospect, he sees it as deeper, subtler, quieter search that was always within him that there was ‘something more’ to life than its seeming humdrum affairs. He is at present the full time honorary Chairman of Sri Aurobindo Society.

In his thirty years in the service of Sri Aurobindo Society he has guided the setting up and management of the schools run by the Society across the country, besides overseeing the other aspects of work of Sri Aurobindo Society. He looks into the financial, legal, campus/construction related matters and any key decisions regarding the school.

Ms. Harvinder Kaur
The Delight of Existence

Ms. Harvinder Kaur has helped to set up and develop Auro Mirra International School after decades of experience in formal and non-formal education, including national and international boards. The challenge was to offer a deeply transformative education that seeks to touch the inner core of a person’s being, while being affiliated to a national board. 

To make this happen, she also developed unique modules for teachers and parents, and regularly conducts workshops and trainings to implement these.

She did her Masters in English literature and Masters in Education from Delhi University. However, her search for a deeper, more transformational education led her to quit a regular job and volunteer in a non-formal education institution, Mirambika in Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Delhi which introduced her Sri Aurobindo’s vision of education.

During her lifespan as an educator, Ms. Harvinder Kaur has worked in several capacities as teacher, coordinator, department head, teacher trainer and was the Head of an IB school in Mumbai before taking up this project. She is also an ardent poet, writer, photographer and nature lover.
