Children are the tender ‘Flowers of God’, and these flowers require love and care to bloom of their full size. Staford School proves to be the epitome of such warmth, where children are exposed to their full potential and their innate talents are brought to the world. The tiny and adorable gestures of these blooming children left their parents stunned, when the rosy fragrance of tiny Stafordians floated in the ambience of Staford School on the occasion of its Expression-2019 (3rd annual celebration of Pre-primary and Primary wing) on 14thDecember, 2019.
The occasion was graced by the Chief Guest, Mr. Vinay Tripathi and the Guest of honor, Mrs Mansi Didwani, Director Staford School, Mr. Ambrish Bansal, Deputy Director, Mrs. Anjali Bansal, Principal, Mrs. Ratna Khanna and the other dignitaries were present to add the feathers in the event. With the Lighting of lamp and the welcome dance ‘Padharo maro Desh” the celebration heightened to its extremities of wonderful performances of tiny-tots, and embodied the Vedic saying ‘Atitho Devo Bhawa’. ‘Penguin and chicken dance’ of Pre-Nursery not only tickled the audience with their staggering but determined footsteps, but also amazed their parents on the latent potential of their own wards. ‘Kukudoo koo’ dance performance of Nursery kids poured the same hilarious effect on the audience.
Principal, Mrs. Ratna Khanna welcomed the Chief Guest and the Guest of honor along with the other dignitaries and parents for their cooperation and support. She expressed her heartfelt gratitude to the parents and her dedicated and experienced team for making the goal of the organization a grand success throughout these years.
Where ‘kabhi nahin-kabhi nahin’ of KG kids received the acclaim of the audience, ‘Zubi-Dubi’ of class I-A was no less than any wonder, and drenched everyone with the mixed feelings of love and affection. Kids from 1-B tip-toed on the tunes of ‘Awara Bhawre and Hathi jaisi chal Ghore jaisi dum’ and also compelled the entire gathering to try the steps. Maintaining the merry ambience, ‘Western dance fusion’ performed by 2-B enchanted the gathering and overwhelmed everyone. The eyes of parents brimmed with emotions while going through the experience of the dance drama ‘Save girl child’. The tiny hands and sparkling eyes floated the strong message ‘Save Girl Child’, while displaying their expressive stage performance.
The words are not only words; they are the reflection of the individual personalities. If the true words based on the experience of any successful person, are followed by parents and children, then it can lead towards the making of a strong and self dependent new generation. The Chief Guest ,Mr. Vinay Tripathi (Chief Scientist & Head HR Development, Div. of CDRI, Lucknow)addressing the parents invoked them to take part in the making of a self dependent generation by recognizing the latent caliber of their wards rather than impose the own desires over the children. He also motivated parents to encourage their children to adopt a nutritious and healthy life style for having healthy mind which is open for the new job opportunities, instead of having stress for the traditional job options.
Bengali folk dance changed the feel of the stage and landed the audience in to the Durga Pooja pandal, displaying the woman power that is the source of creation of universe. In the row of amazing performances ‘Goan dance’ entertained the audience to the core of their heart.
Being child is an essential psychology to understand the inner feelings of a child. The guest of Honor, Mrs. Mansi Didwani (the Director Kalasrot Art Gallery) invoked the parents and children to be the child in some corner of their hearts forever, no matter how much they grow old and prosperous in their life.
On one hand parents were plunged into the flashback of their days, when Medley paid attributes to the Bollywood legends; on the other hand the parents were compelled to get ready to tip-tap on the Bing-Bang tunes of ‘Jai-Jai Shiv Shankar’. The celebration concluded with the vote of thanks by Mrs. Shailja Joshi and the innocent smiles on the tiny faces of blooming children, that was not only the sign of extreme happiness and growing confidence in their persona but also a wave of care free satisfaction visible on the faces of parents, who seemed to be assured about the future of their children which is now in the right hands and right place, i.e at Staford School.
