Emmanuel Kishore, a student from Grade 4 Taurus presented the significance of the day India became a republic. One of the prodigious Republic Day activities “Fashion Parade of Leaders’ Glimpse” was so reminiscent of our great martyrs and leaders who never gave up their principles and ideologies for the sake of freedom. It was so great that students showcased their voluntary participation, doing a little homework on these brave leaders, with the help of their parents and teachers.
Following that solo dance, group dance, solo song, and patriotic songs were highly commendable. It was so great and satisfying to see the students growing in love and respect for their country INDIA and their extraordinary zeal in patriotism and diligence in preparation, which were evident during the 72nd Republic Day celebration.
