Samsara School Visit


Students with "Tiddalick" puppets


Beautiful candles

Yesterday I travelled out to the Samsara School in Greater Noida for a visit with some Year 6/7 students. We were greeted by the Principal, Anuradha Chopra, and offered a cup of spicy coffee before being taken on a tour of the school. It is only one year old and has at the moment only 100 pupils up to Year 7. The school reminded me a bit of a cross between a Montessori School,(in fact they had a dedicated Montessori Room) and a Rudolph Steiner school.It had a very serene feel about it.

The hallways were filled with the most amazing displays of artwork done by the students and huge painted murals.

I was taken to the area where I would give my talk and invited to light some special candles. On the floor was a beautiful rangoli made with marigold petals and floating candles.

I spoke and read my stories and then answered lots of fascinating questions.The students were very attentive and had been chosen by their school to come because they loved writing.

I was then presented with a beautiful white scarf before having some lunch and then heading back to the Principal’s office for another chat
