The Staff of Stepping Stones Senior Secondary School gathered in all mirth and merriment to celebrate India’s 76th Independence Day. This day is celebrated every year to commemorate the sacrifices of our freedom fighters and to enjoy the spirit of freedom.
The day saw the unfurling of the national flag and a parade by the NCC cadets. The Principal, Mrs. Anu Kumar, took the salute and unfurled the tricolour, while the school choir sang the National Anthem.
An Independence Day event ensued, wherein the students showed immense enthusiasm by presenting a series of events to show their love and respect for their nation.
Children from the International Wing presented a dance to a mix of patriotic songs, giving the presentation a nationalistic fervour. It got the students motivated for more.
This was followed by a skit showcased by the L.T.S. Club highlighting the fact that the bond between a person and his nation is unaffected by his religion, race, colour, or any economic background. That no one can harm our nation if we all are united and protect her together. The skit was juxtaposed with a colourful rendition of patriotic songs by the school choir, thereby enthusing a spirit of nationalism amongst the students. The combined presentation was appreciated by all.
What followed was a classical dance extravaganza presented by students of Classes 6th and 7th based on the songs Vande Matram and Mere Desh Ki Dharti.
The Grand Finale was an energetic performance by 8th and 9th girls on the song Desh Rangila. The children enjoyed every bit of the presentation, with the tricolour in their hands being waved around. The whole school was reverberating with the chants “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” and “Vande Matram.”
Director of Academics Sunil Sir gave a speech wherein he wanted the children to acquire 21st century skills and at the same time understand the valuable systems of our culture from ages gone by.
The school Principal, Mrs. Anu Kumar, congratulated the school on Independence Day and hoped the students would cherish the freedom they had acquired and learn to be better and more responsible citizens.
