R-Day 2022: The tricolour flies high at Apeejay School, Charkhi Dadri

Students sing patriotic songs, raise the Vande Mataram chant and pay an ode to the nation even as they comprehend the significance of the hues of the national flag during the Republic Day celebrations



The brightest stars shining at this year’s Republic Day parade celebrations at Apeejay School, Charkhi Dadri, were in the eyes of the students who were gripped with the spirit of patriotism and the love for the tricolour. As the nation watched the 73rd Republic Day celebrations with the impressive flypast and parade at the iconic Rajpath in New Delhi, the pre-primary section of Apeejay School, Charkhi Dadri joined the celebrations with enormous enthusiasm and fervour.

On January 26, going with the momentous occasion, the school’s teachers explained why the citizens of the nation celebrate Republic Day to the students. The students, well, they were dressed in the hues of the tricolour.

The young students exhibited their artistic acumen by singing and dancing to the tune of songs that were brimming with the spirit of patriotism.

Not just this, the children also briefly articulated their thoughts on the national flag and the significance of its three colours. They also drew the national flag in their drawing books. As the celebrations were nearing the conclusion, the children enthusiastically waved their flags, gave a salute and shouted slogans that included Vande Mataram and Jai Hind.   

Republic Day celebrations aim to mark the iconic date — January 26, 1950 — on which the Constitution of India came into effect. The constitution is that sacrosanct document, which establishes a citizen’s fundamental rights and liberties as well as the guiding principles on which the nation is run.

Not just this, the school’s vision is to develop patriotic, social and ethical values among students for developing responsive citizenship and revive the past glory of Indian culture.

“Every year our school organises various programmes on Republic Day to celebrate the spirit of an independent and democratic India. Through these programmes students not only cherish the independence that our country has achieved but also learn to respect it and recognise the sacrifice made by the freedom fighters. They are also made aware of their fundamental duties and responsibilities in upholding the democratic principles of our country.”
