Balloons in the air, smiles on their faces: Children’s Day 2022

At Apeejay School, Kharghar teachers encouraged children to ‘soar high’



India boasts of the largest adolescent population in the world i.e. 253 million. Every fifth person is between 10 to 19 years, mentions United Nations Children’s Fund report. As the country comprises such large numbers, naturally, children’s benefit socially, politically and economically, as well as their safety, health, education and life skills is crucial to our national development.

To commemorate Children’s Day on November 14 and celebrate the lives of these young ones who are the world’s most valuable resources, Apeejay School, Kharghar held a grand event.

On this occasion, teachers of the primary wing put up a special performance for children consisting of a hilarious skit, medley of melodious songs and foot-tapping dance performances. Children’s joy knew no bounds when they saw their teachers performing. The event culminated with the release of colourful balloons in the sky signifying the great heights that these educators wish for children to achieve. Ms. Nisha Upadhyay, Primary in-charge of the school says, “The children witnessed a new side to their teachers when they saw them dancing. It made them feel very special.”

The middle wing of the school celebrated Children’s Day with a poem recitation by Mrs. Kajal Trivedi, a teacher. Following that, a mesmerising powerpoint presentation with a showcase of pictures of students performing curricular and co-curricular activities was shown by Mrs. Vrushali Kadam. Mrs. Bindu Patnaik and Mrs. Avitha Pujari added thrill and delight to the day through a mime performance. Mr. Bhupender enthralled the students with a melodious song and other teachers and sports guru in-charges presented dances. These were very much appreciated by the students.

At the event, the school’s coordinator Mrs. Minakshi Tiwari delivered an insightful speech. She said, “Children are nation-builders. They are full of promise and possess immense talent. And so, students must follow the guidance of their educators. The experience and guidance by them is most valuable as it is crucial for their learning.”

As the most special phase of everyone’s life is adolescence, senior teachers left no stone unturned to make the students feel special. Their celebration was dedicated to power-packed performances by teachers, mimicry skit, folk dances and mime. All the children were given chocolates at the closing of the ceremony and the entire programme was a fitting tribute to children as they bring joy and happiness.

Children are the world’s most valuable resources and its best hope for the future. My heartiest wishes to them! May they climb every mountain, ford every stream, and follow every rainbow till they find their dream. Happy Children’s Day!”
