Father’s Day

2019-20

 “My father didn’t do anything unusual. He did what dads are supposed to – Be there, No matter what!”                                            

                                                                                                                                               -Max Lucado

The idea of celebrating Father's Day was given by Ms. Sonora Dodd, a loving daughter from Spokane, whose father single-handedly raised Sonora and five of her siblings. Over the years, the concept of celebrating Father's Day spread beyond geographical boundaries. And today, millions of children across the world express gratitude for their dads as they celebrate Father's Day.

Celebration of Father's Day makes the children ponder for a while on the important role their father play in their life. This helps them appreciate the selfless care and protection provided by their father and hence they come emotionally closer to their dad.

Therefore, the OOBites took full opportunity of the day and expressed their gratitude for fathers with all their heart. And we, the little ones of the Primary department figured out that the best way to do so is to make a tie. Sure, a tie is the traditional Father’s Day present, but it became so much special when our young ones wrote everything they know and love about their father, underneath it. The ties turned out just perfect and it indeed did make all the fathers proud!

The first graders gave a high five to their fathers with the caption 'Here's a High Five to the Best Dad Ever' by tracing their palm prints on the paper. They decorated the card and learnt to sing a song for him.

Nothing beats a handmade gift on a Father’s Day. Hence, the second graders came up with all their crafting skills to handcraft a cute little Papa Bear Father’s Day card.

The third graders chose to write why they loved their Dad on colourful ice cream sticks. A beautiful wall hanging was the output when they arranged it all together.

Father's Day is the special moment to tell Dads how much he means to kids. It’s important to thank him for the love and support he put in through the years. To remind him of his love, the students of Grade 4 have wrote a lovely note on “Dad you are great because……….” on a beautiful handmade badge.
