CHILDREN’S DAY CELEBRATION
Children’s Day is a day recognized to be celebrated with children. At Delhi Public School Patna, the day virtually commenced with the special assembly presented by the teaching faculty on the eve of Children’s Day. The day was highly regarded and acclaimed as a special occasion to indicate Nehruji’s profound love for children, who was especially known for innocence, pranks and playfulness. The assembly plaza was decorated with various quotations, flowers and the teachers were ready for a warm welcome of the children.
As soon as the children started entering the school campus, they were given a warm welcome with the melodious “dhol” beat, flower showering and the Indian traditional tilak. The flower petals were showered on the students while they moved in line to their classes. Inside the classroom, students were welcomed with motivational quote for them along with the Happy Children’s Day written on the green-board.
After that the students came down to plaza for the special assembly presented by the teachers. The highlights of the assembly were inspirational speech by teachers, poetry recitation both in Hindi and English, self-written poem, then the presentation of the SST department that included portrayal of great Indian leaders like, Rani Lakshmi Bai, Jhansi ki Rani, Jawahar Lal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Sarojini Naidu, Rani Chinnamma, Bipin Chandra Pal etc. There was a melodious rendition of songs by the teachers followed by Principal’s speech.
After the assembly students went back to their classes or regular teaching. We had extended lunch for children who enjoyed the special delicacies given to them in the tiffin by their parents to show their love for children on this special day. Students were distributed the real juice in the lunch break and thereafter we had the teaching periods for the students.
It was a memorable day for children.
