Children’s Day Celebrations
If you carry your childhood with you, you never become older.
Children’s Day was ushered in with gaiety at DPS Coimbatore. Alighting from the school buses, children made a beeline for the entrance of the School building where they were accorded a royal welcome complete with a ceremonial tilak and floral showers. Children were presented with hand crafted greeting cards specially made by the teachers which elicited a resounding ‘wow’ from them. With happiness writ large on their faces, the children marched on to be besotted by beautiful messages adorning the passage to their classrooms. The school campus decked up in vibrant hues of the rainbow gave the somber looking façade of the school building a festive look. The beaming faces of students were a sight to behold!
Excitement was palpable in the atmosphere with eager faces waiting with bated breath to discover what the teachers had planned for them. A special assembly curated by the teachers and organized in the early hours of the morning set the right tone for the day’s events to unfold.
The eclectic array of items presented provided food for thought- inspiring students with pearls of wisdom, regaling them with delectable poetry recitation, whetting their musical appetite with mellifluous Hindi classic, scintillating dance performances and a dramatic ensemble depicting the educational scene through the ages- all resonating with the spirit of the day’s celebration. “It was really touching to see the efforts the teachers had put in to make us feel so special. We really appreciate that” shared a student.
In his address, the Headmaster, Mr. A. Ahamad Azad drew attention to the infinite potentialities waiting to manifest itself in every child. He reminded the students that it is their bounden duty to actualize their true potential waiting to find expression in myriad ways. Recalling the words of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, in whose fond memory the day is observed as Children’s Day, he exhorted students to go after their dreams. “Children are like buds in a garden and should be carefully and lovingly nurtured, as they are the future of the nation and the citizens of tomorrow. Only through right education can a better order of society be built up.”Quoting these sagacious words of Nehru, Mr. Azad delineated how the school under the aegis of Takshila Educational Society endeavours to do just that!
The entire day breezed through in celebratory mood with the eventful day culminating with children’s favourite activity- games and sports! The day’s celebrations ended on a high with students boarding the buses full of glee and feeling euphoric because of the fun and frolic they had through the course of the day.
