Greater Noida: Apeejay International School, Greater Noida recently celebrated its Annual Grandparents Day called ‘Vardaan’. The event was organised to honour the grandparents who are the founders of a loving legacy, great storytellers and keepers of traditions.
The event began with the lighting of lamp and the little ones from Nursery and Kindergarten welcoming the grandparents by presenting a welcome dance. The students of Classes I and II presented a melodious welcome song, expressing their happiness on their grandparent’s arrival at their school.
Kids were elated to surprise the special guests with their performances and some fun games like‘Roll the Ball, Choose a City, and Paper Balloon Race. All the guests actively took part in these activities and felt overjoyed and refreshed.
The lovely grandparents also walked the ramp and posed like models. They were cheered by a huge round of applause by the audience.
The highlight of the day was when the grandparents were taken on a walk down memory lane through a pictorial tribute to their memorable days. Following the performances, there was an impromptu dance session where all the guests grooved, had lots of fun, and clicked pictures with their grandkids. Some of them even sang bhajans.
In the final segment, the grandparents were invited to take part in an artistic activity. They were divided into five groups and were asked to decorate a ‘matki’ or a pot. It was wonderful to see how they adorned the pots beautifully. Also, prizes were given to the winners of the games.
The day came to an end with the guests expressing heartfelt gratitude and appreciation towards the school for organising the event. Finally, the grandparents were also invited to inaugurate the new swings in the play area and were given saplings as a token of gratitude.
