The famous American novelist, Chuck Palahniuk rightly said, “Your parents give you your life, but then they try to give you their life.” Nothing more on earth describes the essence of parenthood so explicitly. It is in this very saying that the gamut of the idea of parenting rests in and to salute this, Deepalaya School, Sanjay Colony celebrated THE PARENTS DAY on Friday, the 23rd July, 2010 with full gusto.
“I love you maa and paa, even if you scold me, I know it is for my good. You have given me all the happiness in the world- Thank you!” said Alka to her mother and father. Rekha, mother of Alka who is working with Deepalaya as a Non- Formal Education teacher was all in tears with her daughter’s words and said, “This organization believes in the philosophy of Seekho and Sikhao and this day has definitely touched and taught me about the essence of parent and child relationship.” The School dedicated the day to the parents and they were the Chief Guest for the day.
“The School is celebrating this day for the first time but there is a provision for Best Parent Award which is usually given during the Annual Day. We try to involve the parents in all school picnics, excursions and various activities. For us, everyday is a Parents’ Day,” commented Ms Monideepa Roy Choudhary, Principal of Deepalaya School, Sanjay Colony.
Besides the power-packed performances by the children, the students also expressed gratitude to their parents by making cards for them. The class teachers presented a small gift to the parents, whom they felt were involved thoroughly with their child’s performance, along with a note of appreciation for them. Ms Uma Das, class teacher of VIIIth class gifted a lipstick and a pen to one of students’ parents on the day (see photo). It was indeed a fun-filled yet emotional day for everybody present on that occasion.
