To honor grandparents and to help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance the elderly can offer, Ekya School, Byrathi celebrated ‘Grandparents Day’ for Grades 1 and 2 on the 28th of January, 2020. The celebration began with an invocation prayer by a Grade-1 student followed by a speech emphasizing the importance of grandparents by a Grade- 2 student. Some of the grandparents enjoyed sharing how the city was different while they were growing up and what games they used to play when they were children. They conducted a game titled ‘Lemon and Oranges’ for the young students.
This frolic event was further added by another game ‘Passing the parcel’ conducted for grandparents and children. We also had a first-grade student read out a poem about grandparents and the event came to an end with a sincere vote of thanks by a Grade 2 student.
