The students of Staford School took pride in glorifying the spirit of unity as they celebrated 68th Republic Day in all its solemnity and grandeur on 26th January 2017.
The programme commenced with the unfurling of the national flag by our esteemed guest, Mr. Mazhar Kazmi. The presence of Mr. Anuragg Mishra, a well-known personality of Lucknow, on this occasion, added an element of grace and charm to the celebrations.
The students saluted the National Flag and pledged themselves to upholding the honour and integrity, diversity and uniqueness of our motherland ‘India’. The choir group presented the patriotic song ‘Hum honge qamyaab’, which reverberated in the surroundings.
To portray the message given by the famous philosopher, Socrates “A healthy mind lives in a healthy body”, the students of class VI performed Aerobics with great enthusiasm, which was followed by a skit which showcased our fundamental rights and duties by the students of class VA. The students of class VB came forward with the lesser known facts about the Constitution of India. To pay homage to our brave soldiers, the students of class III recited a poem “Chale Mardane”. The students of class IX presented a Mime show, which showcased the journey of India’s development since independence. The students of classes V and VI presented a dance performance on the song ‘Jahan daal daal par’. The melodious music and the graceful movements of the young dancers were spellbinding.
The programme came to an end with an inspiring speech by our Principal, Ms Vijaya Kumar, who urged the students to do their best and feel proud to be Indians. She also addressed the students that we as citizens should strive to develop the country.
