Birth anniversary of Dr. Maria Montessori

August 31 is a very important day for Montessorians across the world. It is the birthday of Dr. Maria Montessori. This year marked the 149th birth anniversary of Dr. Maria Montessori.

On 30 August, 2019 teachers and students of the Montessori gathered to celebrate the day in honour of the great visionary. The day's festivities began with the lighting of the lamp by our principal Ms. Shefali Tyagi, Montessori Coordinator Ms. Anula Christy and all the class teachers. The Montessori Senior children sang a song about spreading the light of joy, peace and knowledge. The children were told about Dr. Montessori's brief life journey through our unique birthday ritual -'The Celebration of life'. A special initiative taken following Montessori's views of giving back to society was the Book donation drive in association with India Literacy Project. It was indeed heartwarming to see a great response from parents and students for the cause.

All proceedings were handed over to the ILP representatives and donated to Government primary school library, Bagalagunte. It gave us immense joy to see them put the books to use and have reading sessions. The Go Green project for 2019-20 was re-launched on this day by planting of the memorial Peace Lily sapling by our principal Ms. Shefali Tyagi.. Here's to a strong woman, a visionary whose legacy still remains. Hoping for a brighter 150th birth anniversary.
