‘Dreaming big isn’t a prerogative of the wealthy’

Apeejay Svran Global School siblings create video that wins Inter-school Role Play competition held on the occasion of the International Day of the Girl Child



October 11 is observed annually as the International Day of the Girl Child. On this occasion, the Vaish Arya Shikshan Mahila Mahavidyalaya, in collaboration with the Bharat Vikas Parishad, Bahadurgarh, organised a national level inter-school role play competition.  

The themes chosen for the role-play focused on the issues of child labour, child marriage, gender inequality, human trafficking and female foeticide. The participating students were required to shoot and submit a video depicting the theme they selected.

The sibling student duo of Bhoomi Sharma of class Kindergarten and Tanmay Sharma of class 3, brought laurels to the Apeejay Svran Global School by securing first position in the competition.

The siblings submitted a poignant video of a girl child forced to work as domestic help by a lady. The girl is saved by a philanthropist in the story narrated in the video. The philanthropist goes on to educate the child to become a doctor and the girl, in due course of time, goes on to save the life of the lady’s son, at whose house she had worked as a domestic help. The video ends with an impactful message: Nobody is too small to study, dream big and become successful in life.

“International Day of the Girl Child reminds us to look beyond gender bias and ensure protection and equal opportunities to every girl child. They deserve to be happy!”

-Deepika Arora, Principal, Apeejay Svran Global School
