The Palace School earmarks a day especially to pay our respect to the stalwarts of our lives. A celebration such as the Grandparents Day acts as a reminder for the grandparents and the grandchildren of the precious bond they share despite feeling disconnected due to the fast pace of their lives.
The children of classes II, IV and V celebrated this special day in school with lot of enthusiasm. The mere presence of grandparents in school made the class II children squeal with joy . Class IV and V students had pride in their eyes on introducing their grandparents to their friends and teachers. A warm welcome followed by special prayers and welcome speech commenced the day’s function.
A plethora of cultural programs was presented by the eager grandchildren. The program comprised of lovely instrumental music, dances both group and solo, songs which had the grandparents tapping their feet, short skits and cute poems by the children. The skits brought forward the good habits and values so lovingly inculcated in the children by their grandparents. Leading a healthy lifestyle is of utmost importance and the children demonstrated this fact through yoga asanas and gymnastics, performed by them with amazing ease. Interactive games played with grandparents made them feel one with the kids and made them nostalgic of their childhood days.
Joy and pride was inevitable on each of the Grandparents’ faces. They all had a refreshing and memorable day as also summed up by some of the lovely comments given by the Grandparents.
The students & Grandparents alike always look forward to this special celebration every year.
