Brush up, paint in! Students gear up for Independence Day 2022

Pre-Primary children from Apeejay Rhythms Kinderworld in Jalandhar engage in creative activities



All things are bright and colourful for tiny tots as they make efforts to contribute to the 75th anniversary of India’s Independence. To show respect and love towards their nation, students of Apeejay, Rhythms Kinderworld in Jalandhar are taking part in week-long craft-based activities, dance and flag-hoisting ceremony.  

Students across the school, from classes Pre-Nursery to Upper Kindergarten, are showcasing their imagination and creativity through hand-made paper craft, painting and flag-making activities. They have created caps, flags and other items using the tricolours.

Richa Gupta, mother of Nursery student Abhinandan says, “My son is learning new things every day about the country at school. He is very enthusiastic to attend all the events, celebrations and not miss out on any school activity. He is aware that something momentous is happening for the country and we must participate in it. The teachers at Apeejay Rhythms are also putting tremendous efforts to motivate the students. Abhinandan has even made a flag which he has brought home and plans to hoist at our residence. I feel that these activities are helping him realise how he needs to show respect and love for the country.”

To instill the patriotic spirit and fervour at home, this year, Ravneet Singh Sarna, father of Nursery student Anaira, plans to hoist the flag at their Jalandhar residence. He says, “We are a family of Apeejayites and Anaira is the fourth and youngest child in our house. She is very excited about the grand celebrations at school for Independence Day. On August 15, our family too will participate, click selfies and bring home the ‘tiranga’, as advised by the government.”

At Apeejay, Independence Day 2022 is all about encouraging these young learners’ self-expression and sense of achievement. A grand carnival in the school premises is upcoming on August 13, 2022, where students will dress up as freedom fighters and recite their well-known slogans. Additionally, Nursery students will perform a dance to commemorate 75 glorious years of Independent India.

Ms. Vasudha Kaushal, Pre-primary teacher says, “The students have been involved in a range of activities in the school. Amongst others, they enjoyed flag-making the most, in which they were asked to decorate the tricoloured flag with lentils. They recognised the three colours and picked them from the lot. In doing so, they worked upon improving their motor skills and tried their hands on something new.” Ms. Kaushal will celebrate Independence Day by involving herself in community-based initiatives outside the school. She plans to teach 25-30 children in her housing society about the importance of the national flag. Together, they will parade through the area and spread awareness about India’s freedom struggle.
