Reinforcing the message of respecting human rights in the world’s largest democracy

The Apeejay Svran Global School held a special assembly to commemorate the ‘International Day of Democracy’



Established by the United Nations in 2007 as an opportunity to review the state of democracy in the world, September 15 is celebrated as the ‘International Day of Democracy’ every year. Around the world, the day is observed as a celebration of the values of freedom and respect for human rights.
To mark the celebration of ‘International Day of Democracy’, a special Assembly was conducted by Apeejay Svran Global School in the school this year.

The assembly began with seeking the Almighty’s blessings and taking the school pledge followed by reading out the ‘Thought of the Day’ and news headlines.

A brief speech about the celebration and importance of the democracy day was made by the students. The students also prepared posters centred on the theme of democracy.

This information sensitised students about India being the largest democracy in the world in which each person is granted the right to vote by the Constitution.

The Principal, Ms. Deepika Arora, addressed students about the importance of democracy and concluded by saying that the International Day of Democracy is the ideal occasion to educate the public on issues of concern, mobilise political will and resources to address problems worldwide and to reinforce the achievements of humanity.

“On the occasion of International Day of Democracy, it’s important to make our young learners understand that democracy in the true sense is freedom with responsibility and pivotal to creating a better world. Warm wishes on this day!”
