Hot from Tawa


By Mrs.Premalatha Vinobha, KG Co-

The senior citizens were on cloud nine when Vels Vidyashram honoured them by means of “Grand Parents Day”. In these modern times when culture and traditions are being forgotten the school’s K.G. Department took the opportunity of paying due tribute and respect to the grandparents. On the 5th of December 2009, the school celebrated the ‘Grand Parents Day” in a grand manner. The occasion was graced by Mrs and Mr.Srinivas Rao President of Bala Vidya Mandir Trust. The welcome speech was delivered by Mr.V.Venkatachalam, the Dean of the school and the introduction of the Chief Guest was done by Mrs.Jailaxmi Rammoorthy, the Principal. Padapooja was performed by the LKG children for their grand parents. About 150 grandparents participated in the Pada Pooja ceremony. The Pada Pooja was also done for the chief guests Mrs & Mr.Srinivas Rao by two of the UKG children. Later, games were also conducted for the grandparents and prizes were given. I proposed the vote of thanks to the elders assembled with great pride.
The joy and happiness which was obvious on the countenance of the grandparents was enough proof of the success of this programme.
