Among the most looked forward to events at NPSI every year is Children’s Day. This year’s celebration was unique as it we also launched ‘Bagless Days’ for students of grades 1 to 8 on this day.
November 14 is celebrated as Children’s Day or Bal Diwas every year in India. The special day is celebrated in remembrance of Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, the nation's first Prime Minister’s love for children, who was born on the same day in 1889. This day is honoured in the nation's educational institutions as every child is the pride of the institution.
The key focus of the day was children and their enjoyment. Children were welcomed into the school with colourful balloons, cheerful wishes and bright posters. Led by their teachers, they proceeded to the auditorium for the programme. A range of events were planned for the children. Dances choreographed to popular numbers had the children clapping enthusiastically. Music performances enthralled them while a skit had them in peals of laughter. A fun quiz had the children guessing their teachers from their childhood pictures. The cheer and applause from the students provided all the energy the teachers needed to put up an enjoyable show. Children hummed with the music, swayed to the beats and cheered every performance.
While the teachers took them through a repertoire of entertainment on stage, there was more in class in the form of scholastic and non-scholastic activities, wellness time and amusing videos. Celebrations extended to the whole day with an array of activities including art, music, dance and sports.
The day was well-planned to ensure that children enjoyed every moment and treasured the happiness for years to come. From the moment they stepped in without bags to ending the day with fun and frolic, every effort was made to make the day memorable.
Teachers ended the day on a high note with satisfaction of delivering happiness in yet another way!
“The children of today will make the India of tomorrow. The way we bring them up will determine the future of the country.”
