Presidency School

Children’s Day

Go Back

Innocence is exclusive to children. It is this innocence that we highlight and glorify, especially, on Children’s Day. The day started with the Principal, Susan Roy, wishing the students and conveying her love to the students by reading out a message she had penned especially for the day. Every teacher blessed the students of his or her class by gifting them with personalized handmade card. Balloons and buntings gave a festive look to the school.

The auditorium of the school lilted with smiles and giggles when the day began with a weave of motley programs. The celebration started with the Principal, Susan Roy, lighting the sacred lamp in front of the portrait of Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru accompanied by the chanting of Ganesh Vandana. Teachers gave solo and chorus renditions as well as tapped their feet on rhythmic melodies. Teachers attired in ethnic wear of different states walked the aisle to stand together on the stage and uphold ‘Unity in Diversity, the pride of India, at the backdrop of ‘Mile Sur Mera Tumhara’.

Though the performed acted silently, the audience hailed their performance with a thunderous clap. Through a beautifully executed mime, the teachers gave the message to students that walking the path of humanity is the Clarian call of the hour. As a corollary to the mime, the Principal showed a small video of a theme song and inspired the students to be compassionate and empathetic to others. The celebration ended with a free style dancing by all students.

Teachers briefed the students about the significance of children’s day through a short presentation. Students actively and enthusiastically participated in a caricature of activities organized for them. A card designed by the teachers and snacks were distributed to children as a token of love.

On the 14th the children played games, danced and had a lot of fun. Teachers also performed skits, dances and sang for their children.  It was a fun filled day for all the children and the Principal and Vice Principal tried to make the day as memorable and colourful as one could imagine.
