During the week different activities like creative writing, card making etc. were organised for Pre Primary to Class VIII. A special competition was conducted by News Now where the children got an opportunity to express their feelings towards their mothers with beautiful handmade craft. The students participated enthusiastically and won numerous prizes. In Card making competition Mehak bagged the 1st prize whereas Madiha Gulzar and Aavika secured the 2nd and 3rd prize. In Creative writing competition Kashish got the 1st prize and Kavita and Rishika grabbed the 2nd and 3rd prize respectively.
The celebration concluded with the special programme organised for the Mothers in the school premises. The students put up a spectacular show for their mothers, a day prior to Mothers’ Day. The School Management accorded a warm welcome to the mothers. A grand entertainment and cultural programme was organised for the day. The day’s proceedings began with the invocation of the Almighty through a prayer dance and a prayer service. The mothers were treated to wonderful song and dance performances by their children. A play titled as 'Mother's Day' was enacted, which vividly represented the contribution and sacrifice of a mother for her children. Different games like Salad Making, Best Out of Waste, Pot Decoration etc. were held among the mothers. A section of sports activities was also conducted which included competitions like Ice Cream Race, Back to Back Softball Race and Beam Bag Balance. The mothers were so excited to perform that it seemed as if their childhood had retreated. They were asked to share their thoughts about the event. Several mothers spoke and seemed very touched by this special occasion of bonding. Their smiles only stretched as the sentiments surfed.
The school Principal Maria Swati A.C. praised the effort of the children and teachers for the beautiful performances and opined that ‘Mother and motherland both are greater than heaven’. She added that God cannot be everywhere so he created mothers. She concluded her speech by saying that utmost care of a child is taken by the mother in the family so one should always respect, love and care for her. The programme was concluded by a vote of thanks presented by Ms. Raksha Sandhu.
