Independence Day Celebration

Go Back

St Paul’s English School celebrated the 74th Independence Day programme virtually on 15th Aug 2020. The programme began with a warm welcome by our Vice Principal, Ms. Deepa Gopal. She invoked the speeches of our great leaders like Bankim Chandra Chaterjee and Dr. Kalam and brought in the spirit of patriotism in the hearts of everyone watching the programme. This was followed with an all faith prayer and song invoking the blessings of the Almighty.

After a formal welcome by Misha, the school Vice Captain, Sanjani performed a classical dance to the song ‘Vande Mataram’.

Principal Susan Roy’s message on ‘Samarpan’ followed by the song extracted from the sounds of Isha was the highlight of the programme. The song was dedicated to all the health care workers who selflessly work to save lives.

The meaning of the word Freedom was shared by Yassir, the school Vice Captain. Misha expressed her patriotism through a Kathak dance and she danced to the song Main Rahoon Ya Na Rahoon, Bharat Yeh Rahna Chahiyae’.

The significance of the flag, the importance of the day and the singing of the National Anthem added fervor to the programme which indeed makes all feel blessed for being born an Indian; a programme that will remain etched in the memories of those who witnessed it.
