Here is the new logo for the Shanti Ananda Nature School! A tree is growing in the centre of a rose (logo of the ‘Shanti Ananda Education Society '). Or is this not a tree, but two human shapes? Or even a yoga practitioner? The logo allows several interpretations and yet clearly stresses nature as the most important element in the foreground. Origin and basis is the rose - symbol of the love, which we want to have in our pedagogy basically. At the centre is the OM -beginning of each creation.

 Children on their way to the class after lunch break

In the last two months our students have been very successful once again: in two Karate Championships and (for the first time) in a Yoga Championship.

Winners of the All-India Karate Championship in Kadiri on 27./28.1.2018

We are very proud of the brilliant success of the children ... Sporting activities are very much supported by us; the committed yoga instructors B. Prabhavathi and A. Saraswathi, as well as the bustling Karate teacher Shaksha Shaik, motivate the children to remarkable achievements. Also in other areas, our students are good: after a small dance show on Childrens' Day (14.11.), Banwari Bhupal - our Canadian friend and supporter - gave us the feedback that this show was better than anything he had seen before. And he truly knows many schools in India (he founded the Foundation 'Sai Sewa Canada' and visited many schools already...) Headmaster Raja Sekhar emphasizes that our students can create 'off the peg' - dance and dramatic performances or artistic presentations. I attribute this special ability to our school philosophy and our timetable. Half of the school day our students spend with "extracurricular activities" (meditation, art, drawing and painting, creativity, gardening, cycling and cycle repair, yoga, games, dancing, "master drill", karate, sport, free work, Bookshop, computer, stories and drama). In other schools in India, most of the entire (full-day) school day consists of "academic" subjects such as math, (social) science, general knowledge and languages ​​(Telugu, Hindi, English), so that one-sided cognitive skills are encouraged ... Often this "brain wash" means that the children switch off and only learn for the exams – what means in the end, they learn next to nothing, because the accumulated "exam knowledge" will be forgotten quickly ... And it is well known that Finland has the best school system - there is no homework, and the school day is shorter than anywhere else. The childish game is rated very high there - the reason for the success?

 Jumping Games of the Girls before the Republic Day (25.1.2018)

Our multiple activities - in which the teachers can act freely - empower the children in a variety of ways and complement the "academic" subjects. But also these are offered differently: due to our approach "learning with head, heart and hand" the lessons are more colourful regarding media and methods and also child-centred: the children's activities play a major role in the classroom. Last but not least, projects are regularly carried out by us (once a month a project day and once a year a project week). The Headmaster and I regularly evaluate the lessons; we provide the teachers with surprise visits, which will be discussed later. This concept (www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHOBj6SsMeY) leads to high quality. In addition there is the orientation towards "nature" as well as a large and diverse school area, which supports a variety of activities.

William Nanda Bissell, managing director of the successful "Fabindia" chain, defines poverty in his book "Making India Work" as "lack of adequate nutrition, clean water, basic sanitation, education, enforced fundamental rights and basic medical care". For poverty reduction we make the following contributions:

  • Our students receive Moringa sweets twice a week, which has a positive impact on their health
  • They have access to safe drinking water, toilets and washing facilities - not available to many of our students at home
  • Our holistic education is a high quality one. The model character of our school is known in the region; many press articles were written about concept, everyday life and activities
  • By participating in various school activities, our students practice and train constitutional rights that enable them to act as responsible citizens later on
  • Every month, a doctor checks the health of the students and administers medication
  • From time to time, an "Eye Camp" is performed (Peace Welfare Society from Hyderabad).

With our help for self-help we promote and support the initiative and personal responsibility of students, parents, teachers and employees in Mudigubba. Through our school, we contribute to a peaceful and conscious society in India.

Thanks to the company "Yogistar", we were able to decorate the amphitheater (assembly hall for about 500 people) with a mosaic, which was used for the first time on Republic Day (26.1.). In the meantime, we have nine mosaics on the school grounds and are therefore an art project (not to mention our very special architecture, to which I will soon dedicate a special newsletter) in addition to school and reforestation project! I would like to point out here on my blog about mosaics: www.natureconceptschool.org/blog/mosaics-and-unity.html.

Since the flood in October 2017 the water level of the lake where our property is located, has declined significantly; but a small part of the school area is still flooded - and the flood has caused some decay. Not only trees died, but paths and roads have been destroyed as well. The area looks wild at the moment and needs to be restructured ... By the way; we plan to grow vegetables soon – organic quality, of course. Maybe like this, some extra income can be generated ...

Since the Shanti Ananda Organic Products Pvt. Limited has not generated any notable income by the sale of Moringa Oleifera powder (we had hoped for these income-generating activities), we are still dependent on donations. The very moderate fees we had to introduce last year, cannot change this situation. The monthly need for our project is 5000 Euro approximately. I would therefore ask you to continue to support us.

Shanti Ananda Nature Concept School English Newsletter 2017/3

After the permanent massive water deficiency of the past seven years, we have been blessed with enormous water masses in the last few weeks. We are happy about it, but there are also problems: the lower part of the school end is flooded. The classrooms 4, 5 and 6 as well as the guest house were affected. Some classes in the administration building had to be taught in the administration building temporarily.

The Anantapur District is classified as a dry area, the second driest district in India. 2010, shortly after we bought the school area for a cheap price (about 1 euro per square meter), it was moderately flooded. Every seven years floods would come, they said to us. The classrooms on the lower part of the area (4, 5 and 6) were given a higher foundation, for not to become flooded. Now, in 2017, however, the lake has only reached its peak - higher than in 2010; the water level is 2 cm (!) below the level of classrooms for classes 4, 5 and 6.

 Stausee.jpg - 270.85 kB

Land located directly beside a lake is classified as a protected zone - normally as government land. When we bought our land - from private - it was not registered as government land, [DC = Deputy Commissioner, the meaning is "dry land"], but as private land; the agricultural use was probably the reason ... Now we created our nature School on the former "agricultural land"; and therefore we have to bear the risk of flooding. There is no danger to life and limb, but the situation is still uncomfortable. The guesthouse is the most affected building; we call it "house in the lake," as it is entirely surrounded by water; the classrooms are being reused, although the 4, 5 and 6 class children had to wade through the water to reach their houses temporarily. As an "emergency access" to the affected houses, red soil was spattered, so that they can be reached at least with dry feet.

It was a shock for us, when in the 2nd October week after violent rainfalls the water level suddenly rose very quickly. We were afraid that classrooms would be flooded ... Thank God that did not happen, since the level of the lake overflow is below the classroom floor level; but the first flood wave came very fast and was higher than expected by us ...

But how does it go on? Nobody knows how the weather will develop in future ... Our beautiful garden plants in the lower part of the terrain are spoilt; and is it worthwhile to reapply them as we do not know when a flood is to be expected again? We also do not know whether the trees which will stand for weeks in the water will survive; some have already died ... Only in the next weeks and months will we be able to see which plants are defying the water. For us it is a difficult situation - although we are glad and relieved that we have escaped a larger malaise. Nevertheless, our mood is currently somewhat dampened.

A new video is online: "Shanti Ananda spreads the wings - A Nature Concept School in South India" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHOBj6SsMeY. Specials of the school and the main ideas of pedagogy are presented: in the first part the school is introduced concerning history, architecture and pedagogy; in the second part sequences from everyday life are shown; in the third part, interviews with teachers and students can be found:  The video has a length of 23 minutes and is interesting for newcomers who want to get known of us and for people who already know us. Klaus Chmiel recorded most of the sequences and created the overall video. I think it is very well done ... Thank you very much, Klaus!

Otherwise, the school year continues normally. Every month, we organize a project day, our popular "Nature Day": in July the theme was "Cat", in August "Butterflies" www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NoU668PbMc (Thanks, Klaus!), "monkeys" in September and "snakes" in October.

Snake Hill of the 7th Class

The children love their Nature Day; it offers the opportunity to deal with a topic of their choice - usually animals - in a deeper way. In October, the Diwali festival, the Festival of Light, was in the focus: classes 6 and 7 performed an impressive theatrical performance. The children want a festival without fireworks causing a lot of noise and, above all, putting animals in panic. Also in October there was a maintenance day; the school area was cleaned, bicycles were repaired, compost pits cared etc. Children and adults had a lot of fun.

Since few months Irena, a Russian teacher, is with us. She is interested in mathematics and is currently working in kindergarten and first grade. The children like her - she has many ideas and shakes up the school... Maybe she will guide teacher training next…

In the first two weeks of the year, a large mosaic (approx. 55 square meters) was laid on the forecourt of the administrative building - predominantly made from waste tiles. In colour, it corresponds to the school uniforms (green, pink and white); artistically it links veranda mosaic (construction office) and fountain mosaic in the centre of the administrative building. The design is based on the number 6 (Flower of Life). The pupils of the 6th and 7th class enthusiastically were busy with smashing and sorting tiles and laying the mosaic. Now the mosaic is finished; it shines - depending on solar radiation - like a diamond...

For sport-minded employees some bicycles have been purchased. The roadsters belong to the Shanti Ananda Education Society and are made available to the users; maintenance and repairs must be carried out by the bicycle users. Once monthly a cycle workshop will be arranged in the afternoon ... Society President M. Saraswathi, Headmaster Raja Sekhar, Coordinator Chandra Mohan, "Green" Coordinator Narigappa and Teacher Prabhavathi now happily "swing the pedals".

The Nature Day on 20.12.2016 was on the subject of "Mulching". Because of the considerable lack of water here, it is important to mulch all the trees on the grounds for prevention of drying out. This gigantic task is to be accomplished only with the help of the children. So on this day the students brought along collected mulch material in Mudigubba. The trees were "fed" with compost produced by us in three compost pits and protected against dehydration with mulch material (coconut waste, peanut shells, dry grass, pebbles and more). Besides, many trees were bordered with round stones. The children had great pleasure in this activity, which is to be repeated in January. All trees must be supplied before the year-round high heat begins (from February onwards the temperatures rise till they reach their zenith with 48 ° in April / May).

From November 28th – December 3rd 2016 our project week "traffic education" took place. This issue is very important, as the traffic on the roads is constantly increasing. The right of the stronger still applies here: the one who has the loudest horn and/or the biggest vehicle is most likely to get through. It is difficult for vulnerable road users such as children and the elderly to assert themselves, and also very dangerous. Therefore, Headmaster Raja Sekhar raised this issue. The preparation of the project week was carried out for the first time in cooperation with the school area workers (we have - still - an administrative division of the project into school-related and school area-related activities, teachers belong to the school; gardener, tractor driver, Green coordinator and watering ladies belong to the school area. This is to change, since our construction work is completed except for the amphitheater). At this year's exhibition, other schools were able to present exhibits as well. The exhibition was attended by all schools in Mudigubba, with a total of more than 5,000 visitors.

The project week every time starts with the classification of age-mixed groups. Each group will be guided by a teacher as well as by one or two additional adults. Each group has a special task, but it is also flexible, as the students (after completing their respective topics) can join other groups. The week included preparation, a march through Mudigubba as well as an exhibition for the public. This year, for the first time, all nine class houses (which have been completed in October 2016) as well as the large administrative building were available as exhibition space; In addition, various activities took place on the grounds: on the bicycle course, transport lessons were given, and several installations were to be admired on the grounds.

In addition to the administration building, an amphitheater is currently being built, financed by the German company Yogistar. The interior of the stage will have a diameter of 7 m; the total diameter will be 13 meters. We want to use the hall for yoga lessons and meetings. It will have several broad steps and will be roofed.

On Children’s Day (November 14th)  we planted a number of holy trees on the grounds. Mr. Banwari Bhupal of Sai Sewa Canada honoured us by attending the function and distributing sweets to the students. The students were also given prizes for excelling in sports and games.

Speech on "Children's Day" (Children's Day in India) on 14.11.2016

In this speech, I have tried to sum up the specials of our Nature Concept School:

"Every year we celebrate the children's day. Why? We should be aware of the sad fact that many children are still hungry on Planet Earth - their basic needs for food, a shelter and love are not satisfied. The children are our future - and as long as their needs are not fulfilled, there can be no good future for mankind.

Children should grow into this world by unfolding their God-given potential. Children are like seeds. A sunflower seed can only be a sunflower; a rose seed can only become a rose. If you try to get a rose from a sunflower seed, there can be no success. Children are eternal souls; they come to the planet to fulfil their soul plan. In order to be able to unfold their soul plan, they need appropriate conditions. The mission of the Shanti Ananda Nature Concept School is a child-centred pedagogy that gives a great variety of impulses and inspiration to the students.

Vivekananda said, "The type of education which does not help the normal people to get ready for the normal struggle of life, which does not produce strength of character, not the spirit of love towards human beings and not the courage of a lion - is it worth of this name? Correct and meaningful education is what enables people to stand on their own feet. "

The great spiritual teacher Sri Satya Sai Baba created the concept of Educare: "For the entire creation God is the seed. Out of this seed, out of God, qualities have originated. The seed grows into a sapling. The various stages of the development of the plant, flowers, thorns, leaves, flowers and fruits are in the seed. "

The basis for our pedagogy is Human Values. Only human values ​​give us the right understanding of who we are in relation to God / Universe / Mother Earth. Mother Earth is one of our five mothers in India; and I think she is the most important. We can live without our physical or emotional mother, without our spiritual mother and without mother cow - but WE CAN NOT LIVE WITHOUT MOTHER EARTH. Mother Earth, by the way - would certainly have a better life without mankind...

Creativity is very important in our Nature Concept pedagogy. Why? Because we are all creators; every day / every minute / every second, we create our lives through our thoughts, words and actions. Creativity is the most important key to a good or a bad life. By using our ability to create in a CONSCIOUS WAY, we will realize our wishes and dreams and our visions.

Nevertheless a happy life is possible only in harmony with the planet. As long as mankind does not care for Mother Earth, mankind cannot experience inner peace. This is the deeper reason why we have founded our Nature Concept School. Shanti and Ananda (Peace and Happiness) can only be achieved by loving Mother Earth and caring for her. We want our students to understand this essential truth. Based on Human Values, supported by creativity, we want to assume responsibility for the planet, our mother. This is our mission. Let our children create a better future in a universe of peace! "

A cultural event in the entrance of the administration building took place on 23rd April; In the next year the new amphi theatre will be used for events like this; blue creepers and plastic sheets (in the centre) will cover the roof. At heat levels of 40+, parents and guests came to observe dances, yoga and karate exercises of the students. A video is currently being compiled, here are a few photos:

Therefore, the newsletter will only appear twice a year in future. All newsletters can be found here: http://natureconceptschool.org/news/newsletter/english.html

On 21st April a Saraswathi Pooja was organized to honour the goddess of art and education, as usual in all the schools all over India at the end of the school year. Afterwards - according to good Indian tradition - food was distributed to students and employees. A "Farewell Party" was celebrated; the school leavers (7th grade) took leave of the school to complete their school careers at the local high schools.

Student’s picture on CPE

Every two months, a "Creativity Progress Exhibition" (CPE) is held at the Shanti Ananda Nature Concept School. The children have the opportunity to show their works - often very inspiring - which have been prepared during the creativity periods The students visit the others in their class rooms to see their exhibits, sometimes also small performances. In this "creativity exhibition" unrestrained creative power is expressed.

The last three of a total of nine, spirally arranged, houses for the two kinder garden classes and the 1st to 7th class are ready; this completes our main building work. I would like to thank our two main donors, Professor J. Weyer and Herbert Fruendt, on behalf of the entire project! They made it possible to realize our vision of a creative and ecologically oriented nature school.

But there are further construction measures to be done: a multipurpose hall to be used for workshops, meetings, yoga and other events. We plan a covered amphitheatre; it is to be positioned in the vicinity of the administration building. We would also like to build "Staff Quarters" (houses for employees) on the premises, as is customary here. And a sports hall would be useful as well...

On the inside of the butterfly-shaped bike course five playground devices have been anchored and painted, donated by Yogistar (www.yogistar.com) and designed and built by us. Thus, our long-planned playground is "put into operation". A slide, a seesaw, a swing, a climbing gear and a carrousel invite the children to special experiences. This playground is the first and only in Mudigubba.

We need new donors as our previous sponsorship contract has expired; please inform friends and acquaintances about our project and forward this newsletter. We will soon be reporting news on Facebook. The focus on creativity, ecology and nature, based on human values of wisdom, righteousness, love, peace and non-violence, will also be discussed there. People who are enthusiastic about our project are invited to create together with us a higher standard in pedagogy!

Our society car has been providing us with the most faithful service by transporting us from Puttaparthi to Mudigubba, 40 km away, and is now being painted: school area views on the sides as well as the society logo and the website on the front and back are intended to draw people's attention to the project and - in the best case – to bring more donations. A new project flyer is also in preparation.

In the last few months several stairs have been covered with mosaics; the forecourt of the administrative building will be designed as well with a large mosaic in the school colours green and pink. The still "naked" concrete snake, which is not far from the entrance gate, is to be given a mosaic skin; it will later serve as a bicycle stand.

Rally of the Shanti Ananda Nature Concept School 

On September 23rd many schools, including ours, were passing through the city of Mudigubba with banners. The occasion was the alarming spreading of the dangerous Dengue fever in the Anantapur District. Causes are unclean conditions (as on the streets with still lots of garbage), but also bad diet leading to a weak immune system. The demonstration should draw attention to these abuses. On this occasion it became clear once again how important cleanliness is - from the very beginning we are working to develop awareness and habits in this direction...

Headmaster Raja Sekhar with dog – left Helga Shanti, right Horst Wagner

Topic of the "Nature Day" in August was "dog". A special attraction on this day - next to pictures, dramas and sculptures - was the white dog of headmaster Raja Sekhar, liked by everyone and causing a good mood and atmosphere. Only two weeks later our black female dog was bitten by a poisonous snake and died. This event made us aware that there is no security against snakes. Especially as a nature school with a large area, we have to live with this risk. So far no one has been bitten by a snake; however our doctor in Mudigubba has a counter poison - in case of a case.

Dog burial

Good yoga classes have been held at the Shanti Ananda School for a long time. Special yoga clothing has now been made available to the students - thanks to the company Yogistar, who donated for this purpose. The Yoga clothing made of stretchy material - - is held in the colours green and pink like the school uniforms, only the yoga teachers prefer blue. The older children and the parents are responsible for caring and maintenance, the yoga clothing is in the possession of the school and should be also used by later student generations.

I had on October 16th ten-year "service jubilee"; On October 16th 2006 I moved to Puttaparthi, India, to "save" a small school. At that time I could not have imagined what would happen to me in the next ten years and what development this school would take. I think that from the Shanti Ananda school project we can look back with a certain pride on this past decade ... But the challenges of the present will certainly still occupy us enough.

 

With very cordial greetings!

Yours, Helga Shanti Fründt
