The Early Years Section celebrated Grandparents Day on 27th September, 2014 in the school. Each child participated in this programme. The programme started with a prayer which was followed by a group song “I am glad you are here.” Early Years Lower students showed the importance of living in the animal kingdom through their performance. Early Years Middle students walked the ramp and exhibited casual costumes. The students of Early Years Upper danced to a Hindi number. Grandparents were very happy to witness this event and a few of them came forward and appreciated the programme through short verses and words. This was followed by tea and snacks and interaction with the teachers.
It has been rightly said that grandparents are those with silver in their hair and gold in their hearts. The students of Dr. Pillai Global Academy, Panvel celebrated Grandparents Day on 14th September, 2013 as a mark of their affection and respect for their grandparents.
The programme started with a prayer and a welcome song followed by entertaining performances by the students where they displayed their love and gratitude towards their grandparents. The main idea highlighted through the performances was the appreciation of values, motivation and inspiration that children draw from their grandparents. Some grandparents took this opportunity to share their experiences with the gathering and added value to the programme with their participation.
The grandparents who attended the programme felt very special and were overwhelmed with the performances of the students. The event was a great success and it concluded with the blessings of all the grandparents and elders present and with the hope that they continue to enrich our lives with the valuable contributions that emerge from their experiences.
