15th August is an important day in the lives of every Indian citizen.Besides commemorating our nation's Independence,from British rule, it is also the day we pay homage to our valiant freedom fighters and cherish the values espoused by them.
Due to the inclement weather,the Independence Day Celebration at our school was kept to the minimum, but there was no dearth of patriotic fervor and enthusiasm.
The assembly ground was festooned with the colours of the Indian Flag.The Student Council members , representing the student fraternity, turned up for the celebration dressed smartly in their white uniform.
The Principal Mrs.Shireen Francis was escorted by the Vice Principal Mrs.Anitha Kuriappan ,to the dais.At 8.00 am the Principal hoisted the National Flag.The assembled students and teachers saluted the flag.The school choir then rendered the immensely patriotic flag song 'Vijayi Vishwa Tiranga Pyaara' which ignited patriotic feeling among the students and the teachers.Addressing the gathering, the Principal reiterated that the students have to safeguard the secular and pluralistic nature of our nation.She also made a fervent appeal to the students to help the people affected by the heavy rain.
The celebration ended with the distribution of sweets.
