Parents Day Celebration

Parents are the heart and soul of a child’s life. His world revolves around his parents. Laughing , pleading, demanding, playing, loving, pampering, all emotions are directed at the parents with the expectation of only one outcome-love.

The Level II students of our school got an opportunity to express their love and affection for their parents in a wonderful and vibrant manner, when they celebrated Parents Day.

The parents pride knew no bounds when they saw their little ones perform so wonderfully well.   ( a result of very regular and enthusiastic practices for the special day).

It was a moment of emotional high for the parents when they were warmly welcomed by the  traditional  ’tilak’ applying ceremony  by their kids and what a delight it was for the parents when they witnessed their children introduce themselves so confidently.

A fashion show made the parents cheerfully mindful of the fact that their children are already on the path of becoming elegant individuals.

The song presentation  ’ek batta do..’ , the dance performance on ‘papa kehte hain and papa ki pari hun mein..’, filled the parents with pride as they relived their childhood days through the endearing acts of the little ones. Poem enactments, montessori songs, shlokas, and karate presentation were the other highlights of the day.

A beautiful piece of art work  made by the students was presented to the parents as a memoir, for them to cherish forever.

Parents and their kids danced together and made the best of the quality time that they were blessed with.

Many thanks and compliments were showered on the teachers for the efforts put in , to make this event a memorable one.

Australia Day Celebration-Level I

 

Level I children of our school celebrated Australia Day on 11st Sept. They all looked wonderful in colourful and stylish dresses. The girls’ dresses gave even the most sought after designers a run for their money !!!

The handsome boys who came dressed as Australian cricketers looked even more pleasing and imparted a vibrancy to the whole program. Few students came dressed as Kangaroos and made the Australian ambience more meaningful .

The song  ’Kiwi…Kiwi…’ was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone as the tiny tots sang it beautifully, enjoying every moment of it.

The students eagerly answered all the questions when they were quizzed about the Australian landforms, monuments etc by our Principal Madam.

It was a fun yet educating event, in keeping with The Palace School ethos of Learning by Doing.

Thereafter the children relished the food such as cheese balls and fruit custard, and went back home feeling happy and excited about the day’s activities.

Teacher’s Day Celebration

 

When Lord made all tiny living babies,

He asked Goddess Saraswati,

Now you teach these noble souls,

And make then pure and whole.

So, said the Lordess divine

I can’t be there with every child

So I’ll send the holy beings,

Who’ll teach them everything.

And so came down the teachers,

The heavenly soulful creatures,

They teach us about life and teach us right and wrong

They make our soul so strong

They are our great respected teachers

and Lord’s real angels.

 -Isha Kothari (VI A)

These soulful words penned down by a student of our school aptly bring out the importance and significance of a teacher in today’s world.

Today when the youth is choosing the easy way out to lead their lives, without focus and direction, driven only by the materialistic attraction of the world, the role of a good teacher is to help them come back on the right track and lead a happy and contented life.

The students of The Palace School expressed their love and appreciation through a wonderful program put up on Teacher’s Day.

A beautiful bouquet was presented to Principal Madam as a token of love and gratitude. A presentation showcasing the teachers in their varied roles throughout the year was put together, and it certainly made all the teachers nostalgic and proud at the same time.

The program commenced by seeking the blessings of Goddess Saraswati.

What followed were, the heartfelt prayers, a short play depicting the importance of a teacher’s advice, melodious song and dances on foot tapping music and a very soothing presentation of instrumental music.

The teachers became eager pupils when they were quizzed by their students. The right answers were rewarded and the wrong ones were rightfully penalized; albeit in an enjoyable manner.

Students and teachers got on the dance floor together ; where all inhibitions were abandoned and only happiness and gaiety prevailed; both for students and teachers alike.

Our Principal Madam, on behalf of all the teachers, thanked each and everyone involved in the show, for getting together to present the wonderful program, despite the lack of time for practices.

Thereafter the teachers went for a day picnic at The Gold Palace and Resorts. The whole day was spent with colleagues, in a completely carefree manner, enjoying the activities such as swimming, sports, dance , games etc. The teachers had a fun filled day , where they became children (a very welcome change from their daily routine) , and cherished each and every moment of the day.

Grandparents Day Celebration – Class I

 

Grandparents are the precious stalwarts of our families, and they have a unique bond with their grandchildren. In the course of our busy lives, we tend to forget their invaluable role in shaping our lives. The Palace School prides itself in giving an opportunity to its students to express their love and gratitude to their grandparents, on a day especially ear marked for them.

Class I students celebrated Grandparents’ Day on 30th August with much eagerness and excitement.

A traditional welcome was followed by a plethora of wonderful programs. The students had practiced for days together to put up a lovely show comprising of programs such as dance , both western and classical; song, poem recitation/ enactment, yoga display and instrumental music.

The program began with the introduction of various European countries, their flags, languages and costumes. The ever popular ball room dance and a Spanish dance were the highlights of the function. The young dancers swayed in beautiful rhythm and made it a delight to watch, for everyone present there.

Dancing and singing go hand in hand. When we talk about Europe, can the French and Spanish songs be forgotten ? The children sang beautifully and made the audience feel happy and light-hearted.

Europe and fashion shows are synonymous in today’s world. Paris being the fashion capital of the world how could our dudes and divas stay behind? The audience was enthralled with a glimpse of Milan fashion week and the famous wax statue museum at London.
