Children’s Day Celebrated at the School

Children's Day 2008 09Children’s Day is celebrated internationally on November 20. But in India, it is celebrated on November 14, because that is the birthday of India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, who had a special love for children. He believed that “children are the nation’s wealth.”

At our school, the event was celebrated with much happiness and activities including many competitions. Lower elementary students participated in a Candy Pick-Up contest (the student who picked up the most candy in a short time was the winner). Upper elementary students participated in a Water Bottle Filling contest (the student who filled the most bottles was the winner).

First-standard students participated in a Balloon Blowing contest. Second-standard students enjoyed a Joining the Clips contest. Third-standard students competed in a singing contest. Fourth-standard students tested their skills in a Needle and Thread contest. Fifth-standard girl students pasted Sticker Dots and the boys competed in a 3-minute Balloon Blowing contest.

There was an elocution competition about Nehruji for sixth- through eight-standard students. Ninth- and tenth-standard students participated in a debate concerning “Who has the greater responsibility in a students’ development—parents or teachers. All of the winners received prizes. 

After the activities, some of the students visited the new school site to water the plants and make watering trenches around them.

The students and teachers thank you for your continued support and generosity for their education and construction of their new school.
