Hindi Diwas is an annual day celebrated on 14th September in India. It serves to promote and propagate the Hindi language. The event serves as a patriotic reminder to Indian population of their common roots and unity. The Constituent Assembly of India adopted Hindi written in Devanagri script as the official language of Republic of India on 14th September, 1950.
Staford School celebrates Hindi Diwas every year as a mark of acknowledgement of Hindi as the national language of India. A special assembly was organised on this occasion in the school atrium. The guest of honour was the Principal of the school, Ms.Vijaya Kumar. The students from classes Prenursery to X participated enthusiastically in the program.
The tiny tots of Pre-Primary wing enthralled the audience with their poetry recitation. The students of classes I, II and IV promoted the message of conserving the environment through their poem ‘IshwarkaVardaanhaiped’. The young participants of Class III brought out their creative skill by beautifully singing a song ‘Hum Hindustani’. Astha Raj Awasthi and SumaiyaArif of class VII portrayed themselves as the famous poetesses ‘SubhadraKumariChauhan’ and ‘MahadeviVerma’ and recited their composition.
