Date: 3rd of December 2016
Time: 4.30ish- 11pm (children welcome from 3ish)
‘Aikiyam’ means: “harmony, oneness and unity” in both Tamil and in Sanskrit.
The school’s mission is to provide an appropriate kindergarten, primary and intermediate education to children from Kuilapalayam and other villages, which are geographically connected to Auroville. This education is based on the principles of integral education, as defined by Sri Aurobindo, and the Mother, who founded Auroville in 1968. The school strives to maintain a creative and joyful atmosphere, where the uniqueness of each child is respected and nurtured.
The school’s aim is to provide quality bilingual education in Tamil and English, covering all of the standard academic subjects, physical education, and a wide variety of vocational options to prepare children for life in a rapidly changing world, while still maintaining contact with their Tamil cultural heritage.
On the 3rd of December we will have an Indian Christmas celebration to get everyone in the festive mood. It is an excuse to get loved ones together to make a vibe for a good cause. We hope to have fun, while rallying support for Aikiyam. There will be live entertainment and plenty of festive warmth, made better by your presence if possible.
It will be an afternoon/evening of fun for a good cause. Come! It would be wonderful to see you there.
