It was a red letter day in the history of India when the country got her freedom on August 15, 1947. It took hundreds of years for us to break the shackles of slavery. People of the country celebrate this day every year with great pomp and show.
Unlike every year, this year also, Jai Vatika Public School celebrated 75th Independence Day with great joy and pomp. On this day the sense of happiness and pride could be clearly seen on the faces of all the Vatikans .
School Director Mrs. Vanisha Bansal and Principal Mrs. Rinki Chakroborty Singh hoisted the National Flag on the school building . All the students and teachers saluted the flag and sang the National Anthem honouring the Tri-colour.
After that, a parade was organized which was led by the Captains of Four Houses. It was a wonderful display of discipline and coordination.
Then followed an elaborate array of Cultural Programmes depicting patriotism.
This was followed by a certificate distribution program in which the students who performed excellently in the previous activities were rewarded by the Director and the Principal. Our Honorable Director Ma'am gave a patriotic speech.
In the end, Principal Ma'am delivered a short speech. She told the students about the supreme sacrifice the great martyrs who gave their lives for the sake of freedom. She also said that the freedom is very precious and it is necessary to preserve it in this modern time not by fighting the enemies outside but the enemies within us in the form of corruption, dishonesty, intolerance etc.
Happy Independence Day!
