Good evening ma'am,

When the Chairperson Ma'am asked to clap for me, I tried to say thanks but my microphone did not pick up.  For this reason, I'll share with you on an email all the things that I would have liked to say.  

I am really grateful that you let me participate in the graduation ceremony. I enjoyed seeing my former classmates graduate as if I was there. 

I am very happy that the Chairperson acknowledged my presence, I tried to thank her then but as I mentioned before I was not heard. I would kindly ask you to forward my many thanks and respect to her as well.  And please, tell her that as I spent many of my school years in that school I will never forget Amity and all the work that the school put in making me and my fellow colleagues open-minded and knowledge-thirsty students who are ready to face the real world once graduated.  

I also would like to send my sincere thanks to the teachers who supported me during the years of IG-1 and 2. I would give special thanks to Mrs. Vandana who was able to make me fall in love with Chemistry to the extent that I applied at the faculty of Chemistry at the universities of Turin and Milan. After getting a degree in analytical chemistry I plan to pursue a Master's in forensic chemistry after which I will be able to join the Italian Military as an officer in the Forensic Sciences Investigation department, in Italian known as RIS.

As I reflect on my school years I believe that the 3 years that I spent in AGS were some of the best school years I passed in my life. 

I wish all the best for AGS, its faculty teachers, students and, staff. 

I sincerely hope that if in recent years I'll be able to come back to India I'll be able to stop by AGS. 

Thanks for everything

Umberto Filineri

Thanks Ma'm for all the efforts as it was challenging to engage Kids online, but it went well. As parents, i have enjoyed learning with Alisha as well though there was some challenges with working from home but as it's said, the learning of kids have to be together with parents and teacher and i certainly have better understanding of IB concepts during this time. 
 
Alisha always excited to join classes in Teams and she will definitely miss it but looking forward to start again in Grade 3 :)
 
Thanks Chandrei Ma'm for all your timely suggestions / inputs .
 
Hope to see you soon in person to talk more .
 
Stay Safe.
 
Regards,
Kishore

Dear Aparna Ma’am and all AGS teachers:

 

As this academic year nears completion, we hereby express our gratitude for all your efforts in keeping the students actively engaged during this challenging period. You have proven that school buildings  are locked down, schools aren’t. We could feel that Teachers have worked harder than they could have been in the normal circumstances.

 

We acknowledge and appreciate the hard work put in by all teachers and you for constant communication with us through various mediums.

 

Best Wishes for you & your family. Have a nice and safe summer break.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Rushikesh Trivedi

Dear Madam

 

Please accept my compliments for how well the online classes have been organized.

 

My deepest appreciation for the teachers – the passion with which they are taking classes is outstanding. Just an example – the Yoga teacher was over an online medium, correcting postures of students and was meticulous about it. I have many examples of other teachers too.

 

Many thanks.

Dear Maám,

Kabir really enjoyed today's session.

Looking forward for more of such meetings.

Dear Maám,

I don't know if it was as per plan or related to the current scenario, but I think it is a fantastic idea for the science teacher to have a lesson on micro organisms and viruses now.

It has given the children such a great insight into how social distancing will stop spread of the virus.

Kudos to Science teacher and the AGS team.

Dear Maám,

During lunch time, I personally saw & came to know that Jithula finds online sessions are quite interesting.

Thank you for the efforts for keeping them happy and engaged.

Please convey our regards to all concerned.

Have a nice day.

Dear Mam

 

We want to share a recent conversation with Nuqksh

 

He has a friend near his Nani's house. His nick name is Tuk tuk. Tuktuk showed nuqksh a little bird that his mom/dad must have brought at home.

 

That day nuqksh came home and told us "Mumma I have to tell you something. Tuktuk's mom has brought a little bird at their home. And I think she is going to put the bird in a cage. It is wrong to put birds in cage, we should set them free".

 

Then he said he will tell tuktuk to set the bird free when he meets him again the next day after school.

 

Regards

 

Pooja

Hi Shivani.. How are you?


Thankfully by God's grace, I have got an awesome teacher for Gurjas. He reads words easily now. He says, " I feel so happy Mumma that I read well."
Actually due to his eyes opration he was at home for 4 months, which was his initial period of study.  I was so worried about him as to how he will cope up in KG. I really appreciate your effort and the way you have taught my son in such less time.

Seriously.... Thank you so much! Touchwood!

He came back from school this Friday holding his ORT reading book in his hand. Without changing his clothes and without keeping his bag, he wanted me to make him read the book.

Never seen a teacher like you! Hats off to you dear!

Good evening. 

 It was a pleasure going through the family letter.

She daily reads a book or listens to a story before sleeping at home. 

Thank you for nurturing her with love and care.

Thank you Preeti ma'am and Chandrei ma'am for your guidance to her . She is very fond of all her teachers.

Subject: Thank you

Dear Preeti Ma'am,

 

A very good evening.

We take this opportunity to thank you yet again for leaving a valuable impression in Tanya's growing up years.

We offer our gratitude as parents to ALL the teachers of Grade 1. 

We could see Tanya grow as an affectionate child ,who valued every experience and individual around her. 

She beautifully developed the ability to observe, question and reflect because of the wholesome experiences she gained at school.

We could see the joy and confidence on her face when each morning she forgot to look back at us when we came to drop her instead her steps full of excitement made her rush inside the school.

We often joked with her that please help us get admission in your school as we never went to such a great school. She used to smile with a sparkle in her eyes.

She always has wonderful things to share about her friends.At such a young age she has learnt to appreciate the good in others. She feels happy with the achievements of her friends and all this wouldn't have been possible without your meaningful and thoughtful lessons. 

We are filled with immense pride when we see her humming songs to herself in English and when asked she shared that 'my western music teacher introduced me to these songs'. Thank you for helping her come face to face with her interests. 

We are also touched when we see her write such expressive letters to us. 

We couldn't have asked for better opportunities for our child.

I had my fears when I had to send her for her swimming class and shared the same with Chandrei Ma'am but one phone call to her changed everything and the way she gave me the confidence that school will take care and we shouldn't miss on this opportunity. Since then I could see my fears as a parent disappear.  

Thank you Chandrei ma'am for gifting us that moment of trust and faith.

Looking back we remember well that when she joined Amity she was struggling with recognition of Hindi letters and now within a year she can read,write,spell effortlessly and it doesn't end here she now wants to learn and explore more. Has developed interest in comics and her day ends with a story session at home. 

 We also take this moment to thank Principal Arti Gupta Ma'am who welcomed us at every event with so much of love. Thank you to ma'am for always encouraging our child and creating such wonderful learning platforms. 

Tanya always wanted to be in proper uniform so that she could make Principal ma'am happy. She remembers that on receiving her year end reward ma'am shook hands with her and said to her

' I am proud of you Tanya '. This was most special for her and she was delighted on receiving that special touch. 

 We end by thanking Amity Management and family for giving a prestigious platform to our child to learn and grow and move on to face the world confidently.

We will make our child follow the message of Respected Chairperson ma'am that Amitians must believe in themselves and their lofty goals.

 

Warm regards,

Parents of Tanya Dwivedi

Dear Ms. Gupta,

Hope this finds you and your team well. I a writing this to share updates from my end.

We have recently relocated to Gurgaon from Mumbai where kids had a comfortable life space of their own (friends, adopted street pets and hang out places +grand parents and a good governess :). They have been very nervous about their new school, new set of teachers and classmates. 

As a mother witnessing stress on their innocent faces has been very unnerving and depressing.

Last week, although just two days spent has been an amazing week. Ms. Shikha and Mr. Ved has kept us updated in such organised way that for some one who always has 72 hours packed in 24 it indeed has been a boon. It takes lots of efforts to have such output.

So a few updates from my end

1) Sahil and Aryan  are happy boys  chatting all the time about there school, the weekend has been lively with all the activities around school with not even a slight reminder from my end-I thank the teachers for initiating responsibility

2) They are still in state of daze from "my teachers are so calm and chilled out". They have been talking constantly about the "stuff" their teachers make them do-Two days; a big change as my boys donot talk school at home.

3) Sahil has finished his homework on time with no pestering from my end, Aryan too (we did cheat a little there with I helping him as he wanted to make a good impression on his "new teacher" but we will correct that very soon).

4) No bullying in first two days, that speaks a lot of healthy culture. Thank you.

As I close this mail, I want you to know I feel happy for making the choice on behalf of both my children becoming part of Amity Global School.

looking ahead to a wonderful new semester full of more happy experiences.

 

Warm regards

 

Jyoti Manral
