Faridabad school invites grandparents; celebrates their role in students’ lives

Amongst other activities, tiny tots performed a skit to express their love



The world becomes a little kinder, a little softer, and a litter warmer when we spend time with our grandparents. Undoubtedly, they are the greatest treasure of knowledge and wisdom. What more? They love us unconditionally and are brilliant storytellers.

To honour them, Apeejay Svran Global School, Faridabad Sector 21-D celebrated Grandparents’ Day. The school invited students’ grandparents to the premises for a day. They were formally welcomed by the teachers and staff.

Shortly, a lamp lighting ceremony took place to mark the auspicious beginning of the programme. The school’s Principal, Ms. Priti Wason, addressed the students and their grandparents. She emphasised how the role of grandparents is crucial and shared that the stories told by them imbibe the roots of knowledge among children, helping them distinguish the good from the bad.

After her speech, students chanted the ‘Gayatri Mantra’ which permeated the environment with positivity and tranquillity. They also sang vivacious songs with endearing expressions.

Then, students from the primary wing presented a winsome dance devoted to their grandparents. This filled their hearts with elation and admiration as it marked their contribution towards their family. The kids recited poems and presented a skit manifesting the indispensable role of grandparents in their lives.

“Attending the school’s function was a great pleasure! I want to thank the staff for putting up a great show. I pray God blesses the school,” says Mr. Hira Lal Sharma, grandfather of Aanya, a class 2 student in the school.  

The school hosted a fun and games activity for the grandparents. The winner grandparents, Ms. Janak Kheterpal, Mr. Prem Dewan and Ms. Shakuntala Kaushik were awarded gifts by the school’s principal.

Ms. Aastha Sindhwani, the primary in-charge of the school, delivered a vote of thanks to conclude the programme.

“Grandparents are the greatest gift of God. The bond with them is to be cherished and celebrated.”
