We celebrate Gandhi Jayanti on 2nd October every year in remembrance of our beloved Father of the Nation. We recall his struggles for getting us free India and pay our heartfelt tribute to him for all his sacrifices made for the country. The celebration commenced with the “All Faith Prayer” followed by a floral tribute to Mahatma Gandhiji as well as Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri, one of the former Prime Ministers of our Country, on their birthdays.
Students of Class IV and V through their virtual programme, inspired everyone on the values practiced by our great leader Mahatma Gandhi through speech, song and dance. A short skit highlighting the value of time advocated by Mahatma Gandhi in his words and ways, and spreading the message of realizing the value of time and utilizing it effectively we will not only achieve our goals to the utmost personal satisfaction, but can also contribute to the advancement and development of our society and country.
Sr Carissima, the administrator of the school in her message conveyed to all the students and staff to imbibe the spirit of truth and non-violence, that is connectivity with God and respect and love for human beings which will help all to do their best for the Nation, so that our Nation will be a place where we can live without fear and our spirits will go higher towards progress, development, peace and harmony.
The staff and NCC cadets of the School also took active part in the Fit India Run, an event to encourage people to remain healthy and fit. They also went on a Shramadhan drive in and out of the school campus, while rest of the students along with their parents cleaned their homes and surroundings, a fitting tribute indeed to Mahatma Gandhi, the icon of Swatch Bharath propagated by our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modiji.
