Grandparents Day Celebrations at JMA Pilani Rajasthan
It is essential that this generation of children realize that Grandparents are our heritage as well as essential members of our families and communities.
JMA which started in 2004 with an enrollment of 60 students for the Nursery, LKG, First Junior and Class1 has grown today till Class VII with well over 400 students. While the school admits both boys and girls, the girl student enrollment has been steadily rising every year and is presently over 40% of the total strength which itself is a matter of pride in a state like Rajasthan which had alarmingly low record of girl’s education.
With an aim to make children recognize and appreciate the elderly population, for their values and contribution made to their families and the society, JMA Pilani celebrated Grandparents day on August 07, 2010 at the school premises.
Smt Booma Natarajan Principal JMA Pilani welcomed the 50 plus grandparents who had over six decades of wisdom and said that they are the ones who give the child unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life apart from the regular feed of creamy biscuits and yummy chocolates. Every child has fond memories forever of their grandparents holding on their tiny hands with affection. No doubt that grandparents may have silvery hair but their hearts always have been golden. One can say that a little bit of parent, a little bit of teacher, a little bit of best friend all rolled into one is the grandparent.
The children from nursery and LKG entertained their grandparents with the activities of the school after which some of the grandparents addressed the students and some grandmothers sang a few soul warming songs. After a hearty tea snack break, the grand mothers and grand fathers played musical chair with the grand children cheering them up.
When the celebrations got over, one of the grandparents remarked that they came to the school as 60 plus and leaving as 6 minus.
