2nd October is a very special day for us Indians as it is not only the birth date of Mahatma Gandhi but also of Lal Bahadur Shastri, our country’s second Prime Minister.
Thus, the birthday of two such great patriots calls for a celebration, even if virtually so. This year, the joyous occasion was celebrated with much fervor across all grades, with hundreds of children participating in. Special assemblies were held for each grade with a celebratory program.
In Lkg, Ukg and Class 1, our little patriotic students dressed up as Mahatma Gandhi and Shastri Ji and recited some beautiful poems and songs in their honor.
In the Junior School, children were given a beautiful anecdote on the life of Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shastri and they were then asked to share their learnings, thoughts or feelings through art, articles or poems.
In the Middle & Senior School, the students were asked to make videos or presentations on Mahatma Gandhi’s life lessons. A debate was also organized for Class 6 & 7, the topic being ‘Relevance of Gandhiji’s principles in a student’s life’ and for Class 8 & 9, the topic was ‘Passive Resistance is an effective tool to solve societal problems’.
Students across grades came together to beautifully sing the Ram Dhun whereas Vaisnav Jan was sung individually by many participants.
