Mothers celebrate Teej with fervour in Jalandhar school

On this occasion, mothers of students at Apeejay Rhythms Kinderworld, Jalandhar come together to enjoy a cultural fair organised by the school



Teej stands for togetherness. It is a much awaited festival in Northern India and is celebrated with much fervour and gusto. Women are sent sweets and gifts from their paternal homes during this festival. Teej holds the happiness of women as the most important factor in the household and reminds the world that a happy home begins with a happy woman.

To celebrate the festival, Apeejay Rhythms Kinderworld, Jalandhar organised ‘Teeyan Da Mela’. All the mothers of the students were invited on this auspicious occasion. 

The celebration witnessed kids and their mothers perform giddha and bhangra on Punjabi songs and Ms. Navpreet Kaur, Choreographer, helping them with different movements of the dance forms. Traditional desserts malpua and kheer were served to the happy mothers and students. 

Mr. Malkiat Singh, Principal of the school, Headmistress Pre-Primary, Ms. Nidhi Ghai along with the school teachers graced the occasion. 

Mr. Singh addressed the audience and appreciated the school for always taking the initiative to inculcate a good value system and respect for all cultures in the young minds through such events. He highlighted that children learn more through experience rather than just listening from others. It is thus that all Apeejay Schools have a strong and diversified value system which helps the child develop a strong sense of moral and cultural fibre by participating in various events.

He said, “The festival of Teej brings exuberance and a chance to get along with each other. Young learners  actively participated along with their  mothers in Teej events at the school. We at Apeejay are committed  to the  celebration of gender equality in the form of Teej, which is also called the festival of  daughters  and sisters. We connect with the community and cherish our connections for a long lasting relationship and happiness.” 

Adding further, Mrs. Ghai said, “All the mothers of the Rhythmites were so enthusiastic to participate. They were dressed up traditionally and were looking so pretty. School had arranged a DJ and Dhol for the mothers, so that they could enjoy the festival to the fullest.” She also said, “The purpose of such celebrations is to inculcate respect for our culture and heritage in the young minds and to create a strong bonding with the mothers.”

The fair ended with students and their mothers spending many joy filled moments together and giving countless heartfelt smiles.
