31st Foundation Day Celebrations
3 decades earlier on 11th June, 1986, Amity School was started by educators who wished to provide to children education beyond the four walls of the classroom and not only to impart education but to create curiosity in the child’s mind to self express. On 11th June 2016, we entered our 31st year of service to society through education. At Amity we imbibe life values which enhance the emotional quotient of the child, so as to promote good societal and cultural values in its children along with providing them a good academic base. Keeping this in view, the activities are conducted with the aim towards improvement of National Problems.
Academic year 2015-16 was celebrated as the “Save Joint family “. The aim was to enlighten the society about the advantages of living together in a family, sharing responsibilities and also caring and nurturing the life skills. Teachers, students, parents and well wishers of the school, penned down their feelings to this very burning topic faced by society. All these articles were collected and published as a part of the school Magazine “ Maitri Setu” , which serves as a mouthpiece of the school in society.
Dr. Kiran Shinglot, renowned Pediatrician and Social Worker ( Vadodra) , unveiled this special issue of Maitri Setu No 66. Throughout the day, Dr. Shinglot interacted with the teachers, and students of Amity School. His first session was with the parents of the Amity Play Centre in the morning on the topic “ Let us Know our child”. He advised the parents to be involved in “Emotional Parenting” rather than “Biological Parenting”. He informed them techniques to be followed for emotional parenting. His next session was with the teachers wherein he counseled them on the topic ” Training young minds””. He emphasized that one can never train a child they are pressurized or their thinking and innovativeness curbed.
His next session was in the evening with the parents of Std VI to VIII, where he unveiled the special issue of Maitri Setu. Here he vocated and promoted different ways through which in today’s changing times the family system could be sustained and nurtured, for the betterment of society and the child.
The students who brought glory to the school with their excellent academic performance in the X and XII Board examinations, were felicated in this function amidst the huge crowd of parents, well wishers and students.
A book “ Shaswat Sukh Nu Sarnamu: Samvadi Sambandho” written by Mr. Ranchhodbhai Shah ( Managing Trustee- Amity Education Campus), was unveiled on this occasion.
