CT World School marks International Grandparents Day

CT World School students follow ritual of feet cleaning on Grandparents Day
Jalandhar 8 September (Jaswinder Azad)- Leaving a lasting impression on grandparents, CT World School celebrated International Grandparents’ Day in a befitting manner. It’s a day for celebrating the connections between the generations.
The event started by felicitation of grandparents, followed by a mesmerizing semi classical performance by students. A KG students’ cute presentation on the favorite songs of Grandparents in the form of retro was the show stealer. An enactment showing the importance of beloved Grandparents made the crowd tearful.
Games like ‘How much you know each other’ were also presented to the grandparents which made the ambience full of laughter and fun. Activities on this day range from games, performances, showcasing teamwork and talent among others.
A unique ritual of feet cleaning overwhelmed the Grandparents and made them teary eyed. On this, some Grandparents lauded the school’s effort. “The school is doing a great job of reviving moral values in our society. These days, children often don’t respect or have time for the elderly and go about doing their own work. I am happy that my grandchild is learning to value us” they added.
The occasion was graced by Charanjit Singh Channi, Chairman CT Group, Parminder Kaur Channi, Co- Chairperson, Manbir Singh, Managing Director, Tanika Singh and a large number of Grandparents.
Charanjit Singh Channi, Chairman CT Group appreciated the efforts of the students and remarked that we believe that it is because of Grandparents that children learn more values than what parents or the school can teach them. So, this is how we honour them for the help they render in bringing up the child.
Madhu Sharma, Principal CT World School remarked that we live at a time when grandparents spend more time with children at home than working parents. In such situation, it is the grandparent who has the greatest influence on a student’s life, and the latter must learn to appreciate this bond.
