In order to recognise and show their appreciation for all their mothers have done for them, our kids gathered to discuss the sacrifices their mothers have made for them. The slogan of this campaign remained –Shukriya Ammi!
May all mothers live long!
Gratitude to our Fathers
When we talk about our mothers, it is impossible to oversee the sacrifices fathers make for us! Therefore, in 2022, PGC asked its students to share the best advice their father ever gave them. There, we saw how much sacrifice fathers made, how much wisdom they hold. Consequently, how much gratitude we owe to them!
May our parents live long!
On this teacher’s day of 2022, our alumni surprised their dedicated and hardworking teachers. They got customised messages recorded for their favourite teacher, and they told them how much the teachers and their efforts are cherished! All we wanted to do was to pay sincere and warm gratitude for the arduous work the teachers put in for their students. And also, let the teachers know about the fruits of their sowed seeds! The loud slogan of our teacher’s day remained- Shukryaa Ustaad!
