Staford School commemorated Hiroshima Day by paying homage to thousands of people who lost their lives in the bombings on that fateful day in 1945- through a special assembly comprising of a skit, a talk on the use and abuse of nuclear energy and songs urging for world peace. Hiroshima Day serves as a reminder of the devastation that abuse of nuclear energy can trigger in a fraction of a second.
To stress the importance of nuclear disarmament, Stafordians enacted scenes from the tragic events of the day when the nuclear bombs destroyed Hiroshima, through a skit and sent out a message for peace and harmony. The children from class 6 highlighted the dangers of nuclear energy in a talk. A power-point presentation was used to educate children on the perils of nuclear weapons. Another talk focused on how children can contribute to building a peaceful world; this idea was also echoed in the song-“We can make a difference” and a dance-drama presented on the occasion.
The special assembly concluded with a message from the Principal urging children to do their bit in bringing peace and harmony to the world. Staff members Ms. Aisha Alvi, Ms. Shailja Joshi, Mr. Anuj, Mr. Vivek and Mr. Nirbhay contributed notably to make the program a big success.
