Celebrating Children's Day on 14th November with the launch of "1000 Together"!!!

October 2018

Our Dear Parents and Friends,

We are writing to you to invite your participation in helping co-create a better world for our children! As many of you are already aware, Creative School teaches holistic, peaceful and sustainable living practices. 

Can we all come together to co-create a better world for our children? Creative School’s new campus will be on Freedom Land (named by our children). Dedicated to our Gurus, our collaborative vision is to co-create a Centre for Conscious Living – Inner and Outer. Let us join hands and truly create a beautiful and peaceful space for our children as they inherit this world. 

Many of you are already working towards creating Love, Joy, Peace and Prosperity in your own lives – in your homes and communities. While every individual effort is precious, we now have an opportunity to work together and manifest a much larger space and vision. We have identified many areas of transformative work as listed below.  Each of these will bring in more conscious and peaceful living.

1000 Together initiative will begin on 14th Nov 2018 at Creative School’s & Pragya Living Wisdom Centre's new campus at Freedom Land, Doddaballapur:

       -        Afforestation - planting 10 acres in the new campus with indigenous tree

       -        Renewable Energy Technology – installation of Solar panels, water recycling, waste

                management, etc. with the intention of minimizing carbon footpring

      -        Natural Farming – growing organic food for children and the community

      -        Pond and Wetland Habitats – sharing our home with birds and animals

Every child and human being has their own unique potential and yet now we can build this dream together with our various talents. The power of collective effort far exceeds the sum of the individual efforts. Therefore, a creative process is at its very best when like-minded people join to collaborate.  

A Thousand Souls Together!

It is time for us to come together to take the next steps. We need donations and volunteer efforts to help in the above areas. Can we all join hands and do this? If a thousand of us come together and contribute whatever possible (suggestions below) we can manifest a world we have dreamed of for our children.

Here’s how you can contribute towards “1000 Together”:

-        Donate Rs. 1000 every month for a year

-        Donate as a single donation any amount of your choice

-        Donate tree saplings - after consultation with our Natural Farming team

-        Contribution however small, we receive with gratitude

-        Spread the word – the plan is to reach out to 1000 people and inspire them to join this initiative

Every contribution counts! Together, we can do it! We look forward to your support.

A Happy Announcement!

August 2018

Jayashree, Ashok, Reshma, Sumita, and Aruna represented Creative School at the International College Career and Counseling Conference (IC3 conference - www.ic3conference.com) hosted by KICUnivassist in New Delhi last week. The conference brought together high schools and universities for collaboration on counseling practices for students' higher education and their career paths in many fields. 

We are really happy to announce that amongst the 200 schools present at the conference, we were honored and given recognition for our holistic education offerings, innovative curriculum approach, sustainability, and commitment to parent and teacher education. Being one of the only two schools to receive this honour, our school‘s video (https://youtu.be/3cKCxORg6IA) was broadcasted and well received during the closing ceremony. 

Jayashree and Ashok were given deep appreciation for having the courage and being selfless to create something unique for young India’s education. It was a special moment! 

The schools present were some of the best known international schools, long standing CBSE and ICSE nationwide schools, and many alternative schools. Mindfulness, wellbeing and stress management for kids was something that many schools are wanting to include and we received many queries from these schools on our training that allows us to implement these at Creative. With a participation of around 750 educators, (including  ~140 universities from India and abroad), the conference also exposes schools to well designed and empathetic ways of counseling students towards choices that make sense to them.  

Creative also co-presented one of the breakout sessions with Dr Raja Guha Thakurta and Michelle Whittingham of the University of California at Santa Cruz on engaging high school students in research , esp. open ended research in collaboration with university teams. 

Reshma had this platform to represent Creative’s approach from primary grades onwards that helps build research mindsets and possibilities. 

We were also specially invited to a Presidential forum to engage with university delegates, especially from India and universities in the US with unique opportunities, and to participate in a special seminar on technology trends in education and new careers by Microsoft Education.  It was definitely a treat and a great learning on current technology driven careers and education trends. 

Proud to say that we have many universities happy to connect with us at the conference and come to Creative.  They are truly looking forward to understanding our school’s education methods and meet our kids for possibilities of summer institute programs during their high school years, internships and college admissions. We have been offered pathways to help children who need scholarships  to pursue higher studies. Fingers crossed and affirming - So be it!

Congratulations to all!
