The grandmothers were befittingly honoured with ponnada (golden shawl) by Lalitha Premkuar.
The short get together of the teachers, the mothers and their kids was a culmination of a great vision of ensuring the holistic growth of the child’s personality. Children welcomed the fact that their mothers also are a part of their schooling. The great tradition of India which always respected elders in general, and mothers in special was talked about by all the speakers on the occasion.
Anita Sadanda wanted the kids to be with their mothers by keeping themselves happy.
