Tri Colour Day
The celebrations for the 67th independence day were triggered off by the preprimary section with the celebration of the Tri colour day on 14th August. Children came dressed in the colours of our Tri-colour i.e. saffron, white and green to celebrate and mirror the colours of the flag. To add to the feeling of patriotism, their faces were also painted with tri-colours.
A special assembly was held in which a the teachers used a powerpoint presentation to explain the significance of Independence Day. Later, every class conducted group activities such as collage making using the national symbols and an artistic flag making with palm prints. Class activities such as colouring of the national flag was also carried out by each child. With the Independence day falling on the very next day, children were given chocolates and flags as part of the celebration.
Salute the Leaders Day
Though 15th August was a holiday for the tiny tots, they had ample opportunities to express their patriotism on 16th August — the day pre-primary Stafordians decided to salute the leaders who sacrificed their lives for the country. In yet another special assembly organised on the occasion, the children came dressed as national leaders such as Chandra Shekhar Azad, Bhagat Singh, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Lal Bahadur Shastri ji and Gandhi ji. They paid tribute to the leaders and learned about their sacrifice in helping India gain independence. Back in class, the children made a collage by pasting the pictures of national leaders and learned to identify them and correlate their name and image.
