Like the infinite reach of the sky, you shower unconditional love upon me!
Like the soothing calm under a tree, with arms open you welcome me!
Like the amazing magician, you surprise me with my favourite toy!
Like the fairy, you treat me with my favourite dish beyond joy!
Like the dear friend, you play with me enthusiastically all day!
Like a doting grandchild, I love you and wish you a ‘Happy Grandparents Day’!
Grandparents and children have a special connection that is proven to both, which make grandparents live longer and make children emotionally resilient. To treasure the connection, ECCE wing of DPSGV celebrated Grandparents Day on 9th September 2022. The motive behind this day’s celebration was to honor grandparents, to give them an opportunity to show love for their children’s children, and to help children become aware of their culture, traditions and respect for elders. The program started with lighting of the lamp followed by a dance performance by our little Starz. The enthralling performance by students left the grandparents spellbound and they were thoroughly mesmerized. Many exciting activities were also conducted to make our loving grandparents feel special like ‘Funtakshari’, Ramp Walk and Catch the Ball etc. The children were very excited to see their grand dad or grand mom participate in the games and cheered them wholeheartedly. The grandparents were very sportive and brought out the child in them through their active participation. Everyone seemed truly happy. The event came to an end with a thanksgiving speech by our respected Principal Sir. As a token of love, the grandparents were given mugs with photograph of the grandchildren along with their grandparents printed on it, that surely added a personal touch to the event.
All in all, it was a memorable day for the grandparents. Happiness ushering on their face reflected that it was a day well spent at DPSGV.
AS WINTER ENDS AND MUSTARD FLOWERS BLOOM, MAY EVERYONE’S LIFE BLOOM
HAPPY BASANT PANCHAMI

“A day without prayer is a day without blessings and
A day without blessings is a day without power.”
Once mother Teresa said, “I used to believe that prayer changes things, but now, I know that prayer changes us and we change things.” And change can be accomplished most of all through the power of PRAYER.
The students of grade 4 conducted their special morning assembly with full zeal and enthusiasm. They showcased the importance of prayer in our lives. Also, how they can create enormous power in themselves through prayer. A nice prayer song video was played by one student as a provocation for the assembly. The video provoked the small brains of all the sections and they could answer the question asked by one child. A beautiful self-created story video presentation was done by one more student to make students understand the reason and purpose of celebrating Diwali. Then students presented their videos on what Diwali means to them. They came up with different creative ideas of making handmade things. A live quick padlet activity was taken up by the students to find out how festive-wise and festive smarter they are. After showing the results, some special ways to celebrate Eco-friendly Diwali were shared with the students in the form of videos made by different students.

�Poem Recitation is a mode of expression, a medium to reflect the latent talents of the young ones.�
Rhymes enjoy an importance in the life of a kindergartener. It is a well known fact that when a child sees something, it is embedded in his/her mind for a longer time than when he/she just listens to it. Recitation proves to be a stepping stone for young children to develop their speaking skills and boost their confidence. Keeping this in mind, English Recitation Activity on the theme �WHERE WE ARE IN PLACE AND TIME� was conducted wherein our cute poets of grade nursery performed exuberantly through voice modulation and impressive expressions. Everyone was amazed and spellbound after seeing their pleasing performances. The eye-catching props added icing to the cake.
Dussehra, also known as Vijayadashami, marks the day on which Lord Rama defeated the demon King Raavan.
Keeping the festive spirits alive; class Pre- Nursery & Nursery presented an assembly on Dussehra. These young learners surprised us with their mesmerizing performances.

The confidence with which they spoke was laudable. There were Zumba & Yoga sessions too to remind us to stay healthy & fit for a better tomorrow. A mythological quiz was conducted for these little ones & the amount of knowledge they exuded was wonderful. Children made dandiya sticks & as they say no celebration is complete without music and dance, we culminated the assembly with dance using their �SELF MADE DANDIYA STICKS.� It added extra spark to the already glittering celebration.
Our respected Principal Sir motivated the learners with his encouraging words. His words brought a smile on the children�s faces which was evident. It was an energetic & joyful show.
Let us always follow the path shown by Lord Ram for a meaningful life.
�Dussehra is the day to put an end to all the negativities & start fresh.�
