Challenging Perceptions - News from AMK


AMK students have once again challenged perceptions of what the differently-abled can and cannot do, with 4 students passing their NIOS exams with more than 60% marks.

Jaskaran Kaur (16 years), Amandeep Singh (20 years), Jashandeep Singh (16 years), and Vikas Kumar (17 years) achieved the outstanding results with support from AMK teachers, parents and exam writers (amanuensis).

This makes the total number of AMK students to clear their NIOS exams, total 10.


AMK has won the Overall Championship Trophy for the third year running, at the Punjab State Cultural Competition. With over 300 participants from 26 special schools of Punjab, a delegation of 17 AMK members participated in the 'Umang' competition (13 students + 04 teachers) which was organised by Special Olympics Bharat.

AMK students brought home many prize ribbons, and the team was awarded a cash prize of Rs. 15000/- for winning Overall Championship Trophy.
