Mother’s Day celebrated at Kitam School

Gangtok, 15 May:

Mother’s Day was observed at Kitam Senior Secondary School playground today. The program was chaired by two special guests - Deputy Director, HRDD, PL Sharma, and Sumitra Rana. Also in attendance were students and their mothers.

The objective behind organising the celebration was to pay tribute to the mothers and reinforce the everlasting mother-child bond, a press release informs.

The programme began with Ms Rana lighting the ceremonial lamp and the chanting of hymns.

Following a welcome address by Geeta Dulal and a welcome song by Kitam SSS teachers, a special ceremony was held in which the students offered khadas to their respective mothers. This was an emotional moment and the mood was lightened with a colourful programme which featured skit performances, poetry recitals, song/ dance, mothers’ ramp walk and some sport activities.
