Independence Day Celebrations -2017-18

It was a red letter day in the history of India when the country got her freedom on August 15, 1947. It took hundreds of years to us to break shackles of slavery. People of the country celebrate this festival every year with great pomp and show. The main Programme is celebrated at the Red Fort in New Delhi. Besides this festival is also celebrated in every city and town, in schools, colleges and universities.

Delhi School of Excellence also celebrates this festival every year. For this year we had made all the preparations. In the morning our school saw a vivid expression of the tricolour everywhere. Ms. Shilpa Ravi Maam was the Chief Guest of the day. She hoisted the national flag on the school building. All the students and teachers saluted the flag and then sang the National Anthem.

The Principal Ms. Veena Murthy addressed the gathering with her inspirational speech which motivated the students. Then followed the Cultural Programme. Patriotic speech by the head girl Ms.Mehuli followed by the dances were the highlights of the programme. The Nukkad Natak on road safety was a silver lining to the whole programme. The programme ended with a vote of thanks by Sowmya Pranavi of grade 8B.
