Patriotic fervour reverberates in Apeejay School, Saket

On the 76th Independence Day celebration, students of the school pledge to serve the nation throughout their lives



The 76th Independence Day has been a historic moment in the odyssey of the Democratic Republic of India. The Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav celebration commemorating India’s 75  years of independence reflects how far the nation has come and how far the nation must go in order to free itself from the shackles of poverty, illiteracy and corruption at various socio-political levels.

Nevertheless, the 75th anniversary of India’s independence is a magnanimous occasion which was celebrated by all citizens with much pride and gusto as the Tricolour hung proudly at every dwelling.   Apeejay School, Saket also joined in the celebrations with a patriotic zest as they invited Lt. Col. Pushpender Singh, Kirti Chakra awardee, Commanding Officer to preside as the chief guest for the celebrations held at the school. 

The event was also attended by the Parent Teachers Association members of the school. The event began with hoisting of the Tricolour in the school premises amidst a joyous yet powerful rendition of the National Anthem.  

The chief guest, Lt. Col. Pushpender Singh, Kirti Chakra, Officer Commanding, in his address motivated the students to serve the nation dutifully and also ignited a sense of responsibility towards their motherland.

The celebrations were marked with heartwarming presentations given by the students as a tribute to their motherland. The inspiring speeches in Hindi emulated the valiant freedom fighters and aroused a spirit of unity and brotherhood in all. A soulful medley of patriotic songs by the school’s choir group brought about a wave of nationalism, peace and harmony in the students.

The celebrations culminated as all students sang the school song and promised to serve the nation well throughout their lives. The colours of the tricolour proudly adorned the school premises and exuded a sense of pride to cherish the sweet nectar of freedom and work towards realising it as  responsible citizens.
