Grandparents are the precious stalwarts of our families and are instrumental in shaping the very fabric of our lives. They lead us to the right path, holding our hands at every step, scolding us if we go wrong, encouraging us in our tough times, inspiring us to be the best and forever being the “Wind beneath our Wings…….”
What better way there could be for the young generation to express their love, respect and gratitude towards them than on a dayespecially dedicated to them!! A day when the grandparents are the Guests of Honour and are felicitated rightly so. The Grandparents Day celebration by the school is a humble way, taught to the students, for letting their grandparents know their irreplaceable role in their lives.
We believe that progress with values, ascent with firm roots of family bonds, and academic excellence with compassion are the essential ingredients for the holistic development of a child. Grandparents Day Celebration is a significant milestone in the child’s journey in our school.
A program specially prepared for the grandparents over days of regular practice and over brimming excitement, makes the day a much awaited occasion by grandparents and grandchildren alike.
Every class with their teacher’s help strives to communicate in the most loving, innovative manner, their deep rooted emotions for their guardian angels. At times, the teachers are mere facilitators as the children act with unforeseen initiative and energy to present the best for their grandparents.
The hustle bustle of the days’ preparation in the school premises reminded one of a joyous family function where the members are seen running around with urgency and excitement to get everything in order before the Guests of Honour arrive, and once they do the rest is a cake walk with both the hosts and the guests having the most awaited interaction of the year !!
The traditional welcome extended by their own grandchildren who lovingly put tilak on the grandparents left many, emotionally awestruck. Once the felicitations were in place, the heartfelt prayers, the emphatic speeches and the welcome songs paved the wayfor the beautiful program to commence.
The dear grandparents epitomize traditional values, rich heritage and culture and to say that their grandchildren also keep in sync with it , is not enough, as they say “What you see is what you believe”. Our students presented various song.
The vibrancy of the dances was such that the grandparents were overwhelmed to the point of actually willing to join in and be participative in the dance.
Singing and dancing always go hand in hand. The soulful songs and the sprightly western dances so well presented by the students made for a complete entertaining day. The ecstasy of showcasing something new was evident when some of the students including our youngest stars.
