The function commenced with the unfurling of the national flag by the esteemed Chief Guest and the Principal, Rev. Bro. George. Thereafter, Manvi kumar of class 6 led the gathering in prayer followed by a well choreographed prayer dance .The tableau presented by the students of class 6 reminded the students of the travails of our freedom fighters whose altruistic life brought us hard earned freedom. The speech by Raghav Anand highlighted the value of our precious liberty .The soul-stirring patriotic songs like ‘Sare Jahan Se Achha’ and ‘Vande Mataram’ reverberating in the school premises filled each one present with patriotic fervour. The foot-tapping dance performance on the song ‘Jagao Mera Des’ was enjoyed by one and all. The Chief Guest, while addressing the gathering, underlined the fact that our freedom fighters sacrificed their lives to overthrow the British and now the youth of the country is making the nation prosperous.
