“Grandparents make the world a little softer, a little kinder, and a little warmer.”
As an initiative to rouse a sublime yet warm bond between the gen-next and the old, SAI International School celebrated Grandparents Day on Saturday, October 10, 2020. Students from Play Group to Class XII along with their grandparents participated with great joy and enthusiasm.
Held on the theme ‘Golden Days with Grandparents’, the day revived some old memories. The virtual celebration began with an introductory-cum-talent hunt round wherein all the elderly guests introduced themselves by chanting hymns, singing songs, sharing interesting episodes from their life. It was an enthralling moment for all, as the grandparents went down the memory lane and the child in them was elated. The elderly people recalled some memorable incidents of their grandchildren and the children shared the innumerable ways in which their grandparents put up with their tantrums.
As it was a virtual celebration, grandparents could easily join in from miles away. The kids put on their best effort to make the day memorable through handmade cards, heartfelt poems, lovely dance, sincere words and a series of fun games made the day indeed special. Some students made quite brilliant efforts to connect to their Grandparents virtually and link them to the ongoing celebrations. In the course, their successful attempts to make the old generation tech-savvy were noteworthy.
