Grandparents are the precious gems of a family. Their experience and knowledge spills the words of wisdom & captivate the grandchildren with their love and concern. In the current scenario, where nuclear families are being encouraged, grandchildren are deprived of the treasure trove transferred from generations to generations. One of the Best CBSE Schools in India, Aparnaa World School celebrated Grand Parents Day on 28th October 2017 to honor them. It helped to make the students understand the importance and value of grandparents.
The Celebration Scenario
The event was started with the lighting of lamps by the grandparents who had solicited the occasion with their presence. Students of LKG and UKG, took over the mike to welcome their beloved grandparents and sung rhymes for them. The speech of UKG students, made tears roll down their cheek faster than a heartbeat. Students presented dance performances, speech, rhymes that brought about a smile on their faces and satisfaction in their mind.
The grandparents shared their invaluable life lessons through their nostalgic experiences with the students and teachers as well. Games were organized for them to play alongside their grandchildren, which they rejoiced and enjoyed. Certificate distribution was done by the grandparents to all students who had bagged prizes in different events. They enjoyed the delicacy provided to them at the food court. This event ended with grandparents returning with sweet memories of the fun and frolic organized to honor them.
By this event, one of the best CBSE schools in India taught the students to worship their parents and grandparents. The legacy of our culture is passed on to the children, through grandparents who devote all their time for grandchildren. As the famous quote goes “Grandchildren are the compensation given by God to us for making us grow old”.
