Our school jointly celebrated Rashtriya Ekta Diwas, Karnataka Rajyothsava and Diwali with great enthusiasm on October 31, 2015 invoking God’s blessing on the programme through a prayer song.

The students enthralled the audience by dancing to the tunes of popular Kannada songs. A short video clipping on Cracker free Diwali was presented to motivate the children to keep our Mother Earth clean and pollution free. The Cultural programme generated a sense of pride and unity in the minds of the young children for being a part of our Indian Culture that is so rich and vibrant.

The lower classes had their celebration separately with great vogue and grandeur on the same day. It was hosted by the students of Class II-A and II-B. The whole programme was conducted in Kannada language to show respect and love for the state. The programme commenced with a prayer service followed by a welcome dance.

The students also expressed the increasing need to avoid crackers and fireworks as it pollutes the environment. They enraptured the audience with their adorable dance performance. Diwali being a time of happiness and sharing, the students put forward a skit based on the value of sharing and sacrifice.
