As every rain brings physical change to the land, every year and term brings change in children and also in our campus. Our Wisdom building classrooms have been in use by our 6th, 7th and 8th graders since July, and were formally inaugurated on September 29th by the new Secretary of the Auroville Foundation, Mr. Mohan Verghese Chunkath I.A.S. (ret’d). Unfortunately our dear friend Mr. Akshai Mehta, son of the late Vasanthlalbhai and Kokilaben Mehta, was unable to be present at the inauguration.

The Harmony Building, financed by the Government of India, has been growing steadily, and will be ready for use in a few months. There was a festive mood on our campus during the first term and a thematic dress-up show by the children to celebrate Teachers’ Day and Children’s Day together on campus. In the past, the parents of our children did not show up when the school would celebrate special events, but recently parents show a greater interest in our activities. I think we are slowly starting to impact the parents too.

We are very happy to share a few glimpses of our activities and hope you enjoy reading about them.
