On the eve of the International Mother's Day, the entire student fraternity of Shalom Hills International School was frenetically engaged on a mission of love - to honour their beloved M.D ma'am as well as seek her continual blessings on this special occasion. Each wing of the school from the Pre-Primary to Senior Wing had planned something special to show their thanksgiving to M.D ma'am. The senior students fully aware of M.D ma'am love for nature and espousal of environmental causes had prepared gifts from recycled materials and beautiful mementos which they presented to M.D ma'am. It was a truly sentimental moment when they read aloud an emotionally drenched poem before ma'am. The students had poetically replayed and captured their school memories from the time they had joined the school as tiny toddlers. Through gripping verses, they expressed their gratitude to M.D ma'am for handholding them, believing in their dreams, stilling their fears and empowering them not only as school leaders but also for their roles as future torch bearers.
To quote a few lines from a poem dedicated to the school's Founder-Managing Director, who is also addressed as the Mother Darling:
To be a mother is not an easy task,
To be a Mother Darling of so many is even more onerous
yet you do it proudly everyday no matter what is asked.
You have turned your babies into confident seniors.
You were there for us since we began school and saved us countless tears.
The loving and wise advice you gave will carry us through even the adult years.
How can one simple day prove our thanks and love to one who is our role model, our guiding force, our veritable sun ray? No other person deserves a more wonderful Mother's Day.
Not to be left behind in this outpouring of love for their Mother Darling, the primary wing students presented a delightful role play dedicated to ma'am. They too used the opportunity and the befitting occasion to share their wonderful experience in the school and how M.D ma'am has played a pivotal role in mentoring them and grooming their burgeoning personalities with her continuous guidance and loving motivation.
The tiny tots of Pre-Primary Wing who are ma'am' special darlings too presented small tokens of love to M.D ma'am.
Shalom family wishes all the precious mothers the world over a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
"God could not be everywhere; therefore he made mothers."
