Father's Day Celebration at Witty International School, Pawan Baug .


"Any man can be a father but it takes someone special to be a Dad." -- Anne Geddes

Father’s Day is a day to commemorate the contributions and sacrifices that each and every father has made to individual families and societies at large. We, the Secondary Section of Witty International School, Pawan Baug, provide children an opportunity to express love and respect for their fathers. The sentiment goes a long way in strengthening father-child relationship and consequently in the emotional development of a child.
The programme commenced with a rendition of an inspirational song ‘You raise me up’ which thanked fathers for their unconditional love and support in each child’s life. Father’s day is a reminder to us of how our own fathers have provided guidance, instilled family hunting traditions and were just plain there for us while we were growing up.
There are times when we expect our parents to provide for our comfort at all times without realising the selfless sacrifices that our fathers would have made to give us a comfortable lifestyle. This message was brought out by the English skit. The children were grateful for the efforts put in by their fathers.
A father’s love for his children is often expressed in the sacrifices they make, whether in times of crisis or just in the everyday choices of family life. Defining fatherly love is not easy and one way to do so is to demonstrate the way in which a father is present in a child’s life, helping out in physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs. The sharing of time, activities, conversation and self, means a constant support that children perceive as being enduring in their lives. ‘It’s all about you, Dad’ - a song sung just trying to tell Dads that they deserve all the possible love, respect and trust from their children.
Fathers have always played a huge impact on their child’s life. While we appreciate the incredibly big role that the fathers play in a child’s upbringing, we also know that each father has a unique and quirky personality trait. The Hindi skit was a manifestation of our stereotypical dads at home.
The programme was interspersed with renditions by the students of six beautiful poems. Each of them trying their best to explain what love a son or a daughter receives from their dads.
The programme ended with a bang. The students displayed a spectacular dance performance reinstating the importance of the day.
By the end of the programme there were quite a few dads left teary eyed. The dads were truly emotional and grateful that the school had put up such a heart rendering show which ignited all the love of a child for their father for being with them at every step of their life.
Principal, Bijo Kurian, mentioned, “Fathers are the solid foundation of our lives. They are the shore we swim to when our arms and legs feel increasingly tired. They are the strength we rely on as we take our first tentative steps into the world. On this Father’s day, it is important to recognise and reward dads for being there, and actively teaching important life skills to children.” Truly a Tribute to our Dads.
