Captain Thomas joined AISC 8 years ago after retiring from the Indian Army, which he had served in for 32 years. He is very excited about the work he does because the school is very supportive and has an amazing environment. He enjoys the respect and thanks he received from the students and teachers. Captain Thomas has fought in wars on behalf of our country at Sri Lanka, Siachen Glacier, and Kargil. He would like to share that he has been rated an A+ student in all of his courses in the Armed forces. His proudest moments were when he and the team were congratulated for protecting the school during the Chennai Floods, the death of our ex-chief minister, Cyclone Vardah, and the Jallikattu. If Capt. Thomas could trade lives with a person for 24 hours, it would be Karna from Mahabharata. He would like to proclaim to the world about the great leader’s generosity. Captain Thomas is very proud of his job and he says cannot thank the school enough for giving him this opportunity.

Happy Diwali!

The 2017 Diwali gifts for our AISC community comes from a variety of Indian-based non-governmental organizations.

The notebooks are made from rhinoceros and elephant dung from remote forests of Assam by Elrhino. Elrhino works towards conservation of the Great One-Horned Rhinoceros and the Indian Elephant.

The chocolates and cookies are made by burn victims and survivors of domestic abuse. The International Foundation for Crime Prevention and Victim Care rescues women, trains them to become chefs and appoints them as cooking staff at the Writer's Cafe on Peters Road, Royapettah, Chennai.

The scented candles and natural fiber folder are from Rope International and are made by rural families and the Handloom Weavers Cooperative of Kavundapadi Village. Rope International is a non-profit that provides market access to these rural artisans.

The diyas, tray and the paper bag are from Vidyasagar, an NGO that works with people with neurological or mental disabilities. These products are designed by children with autism and other mental disabilities. Vidyasagar believes that people with disabilities are skilled, employable, and can make products that people need.
We hope that you enjoy these gifts while helping people and animals in India.

We honored four students who epitomized our description of a THINKER in our Vision for an AISC Learner. We honored them with a certificate and a sustainable gift - a plant! Specifically, in the classroom thinkers:

Thinkers are those students who examine information critically and creatively to analyze and take considered action to solve problems in the classroom. These students exercise initiative in making reasoned, ethical and data-informed decisions. Thinkers may demonstrate their thinking by being thoroughly prepared and well informed, by asking clarifying questions, by deeply engaging with the material taught in class, by considering information and ideas from multiple perspectives and thus increasing understanding.
