Grandparents Day by Ms. Parul & Kriti Nigam

Grandparents’ Day celebration is a well-established tradition of Pathways Noida that both the students and grandparents look forward to every year.  This was the annual celebration with more than 250 grandparents of Kindergarten and Primary in attendance.
A joyous grandmother commented, “This is a special day that I look forward to each year. It's an opportunity to share time with my granddaughter in a beautiful, spiritual environment. It truly creates a memory for us both.”
The primary school council and teachers traditionally welcomed their visitors followed by a scrumptious breakfast in the cafeteria. Later the grandparents were escorted by the students to the respective venues.
In the classrooms, grandparents enthusiastically participated in various events planned by the students and teachers. They sang songs, played games, recited poems, decorated cupcakes, and played ‘antakshari’. Students discussed comparisons with their grandparents between their favorite toys, school subjects and grandparents expressed their joy of engaging with the young students.
Some grandparents traveled long distances, from Ludhiana, Jaipur, and Patna to support their grandchildren.
