Grandparents Day

On Friday, 10 June 2005, Rupy’s International School held its rather unusual but eventful Grandparents Day. Regardless of their age, the hazurmuas and hazurbuas of the students filled in to watch the fun-filled programme performed by their grandchildren with great enthusiasm. HRH Nava Yuvaraj Hrideyendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev and HRH Princess Purnika RL Devi Shah were also among the participants. There were a variety of programmes consisting of songs, dances and a short play that was thoroughly enjoyed by an eager audience. — Jonathan Handali, Class X, Rupy’s International
