The morning of September 20, 2019, was filled with abundant showers of blessings, excitement and cheer as the Pre-Primary section anxiously awaited to welcome their dear grandparents.
The function began with a soulful prayer dance performed by the Preparatory boys. The ‘Welcome Song’ sung by the angelic Kindergarteners set the tone for the morning with the message of ‘Love’. The boys sang and enthralled their dear grandparents with their melodious voices. The Kindergarteners were back on stage with a ‘Fashion Show’ highlighting the colourful and vibrant Great Big Indian Wedding. Our little boys………(and girls) put their best foot forward and mesmerized the audience with their catwalk and their awesome attitude. Our ‘Marian Bandwalas’ got everyone on their feet, with their infectious and rhythmic beats.
This was followed by an interactive ‘Fun Quiz’ focusing on the bond between the grandchild and the grandparents. There were many spot prizes given away throughout the morning.
The Preparatory boys took the audience down memory lane with a scintillating song and dance performance that got the grandparents singing along and reviving cherished memories. This was followed by a special segment Boy Wonder, highlighting an outstanding talent of our prep boy Master. Ayaan Gupta. We then had an exceptional Talent Show which saw the grandparents and their grandchildren showcase their remarkable talent together on stage.
The grand finale song sung by our prep boys conveyed the unconditional love of their doting grandparents. The grandparents were treated to a video showing the making of our grandparents day celebration. The attractive and fantabulous décor outside the auditorium invited the grandparents to have their photographs clicked which made them feel special and loved.
The grandparents then went to their little ones’ classrooms where they were felicitated with a gift made by the boys. The grandparents were given a snack-box before they left.
The grandparents expressed their gratitude and love to the teachers and commented on how special they felt. Grandparents Day was a memorable one for the children as well as the grandparents, who left with happy memories, loads of appreciation and heaps of blessings to the school and its staff.
All in all it was a beautiful and blessed morning with Love All Around !!
