30 Jan Peace Day Celebrations 2020
With the mission of instilling in its students the values of peace, harmony, empathy and non-violence, the school celebrated Peace day/Martyrs Day on January 30th, 2020 to pay homage to Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the champion of peace, on his 72nd death anniversary. To mark this day, the students of class I D & E and IV C, D & E hosted the programme enthusiastically .The programme started with the all faith prayer followed by a prayer dance. Mr K Shambhu Sharma and his wife Mrs Pramila Sharma, the well known advocates of Mangaluru were the Chief Guests for the programme of the middle school, while Ms. Molly D’Almeida was the chief guest for the primary section.
The significance of the day was brought out by the students through a fitting cultural programme. As part of the celebration the students narrated an incident in the life of Dr. Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi sharing a story as an example of non-violence in parenting a child. It also conveyed that being tolerant towards each other, kindness to self and others is the best way to bring about Peace. The little ones put up a short yet fitting skit with a take away message “PEACE”. Energetic jingling steps, music and mesmerising actions by the students held everyone in a happy mood. The celebration ended with singing of the National Anthem.
Yet another tribute was paid through a street play. The students of VI – VIII along with their teachers went on a Peace March from the school to Padavinangady. The scouts, guides and NCC cadets also decorated the peace march, carrying with them placards conveying various messages of peace.
The street play at Padavinangady was well appreciated by the onlookers who found joy in joining the students. This play also caught the attention of the Asst Sub Inspector Mr Raghavendra K who readily and happily joined the students in their act of peace.
