From mini-marathon to jam sessions, Independence Day celebrations lit up the school premises

Apeejay School, Rama Mandi, Jalandhar is celebrating 75 years of India’s independence in style as students engage in a plethora of fun activities that enlighten them about the nation



Apeejay School, Rama Mandi, Jalandhar is leaving no stone unturned to fully celebrate the 75th independence anniversary week. The school campus is brimming with activities to commemorate the special occasion. Students from all classes are enthusiastically participating in the activities organised by the school. 

From reciting soulful patriotic poems in the Hindi Kavita Vachan Prtiyogita (Hindi poetry recitation competition) by students of classes 3-5 to participating in the mini-marathon race by students of classes 4-6, a line of activities are being held.

Sharing her experience, Class 6 student Jasmehar Kaur said, “We had to run a mini-marathon. We ran four rounds of the school grounds in the spirit of independence. It was a brilliant experience. I enjoyed it a lot.”

Class 10 students had an enriching and interesting extempore competition. Participant Mehakpreet Kaur said, “I got the topic ‘Make in India and Make for India’. After introducing the concept and defining them briefly, I put forward the argument that for the growth of our nation, for a developed India, ‘Make in India’ and ‘Make for India’ campaigns are extremely crucial. The extempore competition was a great experience for me. I enjoyed it a lot and also got to learn a lot about my nation.” 

The extempore competition was followed by a lively jam session by the students of classes 11 and 12.  A festive atmosphere reverberated in the school campus. Students understood the importance of independence in a fun and value-based manner.

“This 75th independence anniversary, let’s have the courage of saffron, purity much like the white of our tricolor, and the dire need to grow and nurture like the green in our flag.”
