Patriotic Fest

India is all set to commemorate its 75th Independence Day on August 15 this year with the theme ‘Nation First, Always First’.
On this occasion, a patriotic festival was held for the secondary students of Don Bosco High School, Borivli .
There was an eclectic mix of programs being organised for the different classes.
The 5th and the 6th standard students had a patriotic singing competition. The 7th and the 8th standard students danced to the tunes of some heart rendering songs praising mother India. The students of std 9th and 10th had a chance to display a historical event of their choice. They had to share the message through their act and the charts displayed. No words or actions were allowed.
The judges had a tough time selecting the best groups as all the classes gave an alluring performance. More than the performances, what was heartening was that every student of each class had participated in the event.
It was indeed a special occasion. After all, one doesn’t get to celebrate 75 years of Independence everyday!
In his famous Independence Day speech, Jawaharlal Nehru said, “Long years ago, we made a tryst with destiny and now that time comes when we shall redeem our pledge. At the stroke of today’s midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom.”
Today, as we celebrate this great event, we pledge to contribute to the life and freedom of this great motherland – India with all our honesty and integrity!
Jai Hind !
