The Independence Day celebration for the class of Junior Kg was held on Friday, 12th of August 2011. Children wore dresses with colours from the tri-colour of our National flag.
The children were informed that Independence Day is celebrated on 15th of August of every year because India became a free and independent nation on 15th August 1947. The teacher explained the importance of Independence Day to the children and also explained the struggle for freedom.
Children were also taught about how our great leaders fought and won our freedom from the British rule. They were also informed that our freedom struggle was based on the non-violence movement. Brief information on Mahatma Gandhi was given, and they were told that he is the Father of our Nation and that he led the freedom struggle by conducting various non-violence movements and how his philosophies inspired Indians across the nation to fight for the freedom in their own states.
The teacher educated the children by telling that Independence Day is celebrated every year across the nation and as a traditional ceremony the present Prime-minister of our nation will hoist the national flag at Red Fort, located in New Delhi; after which he will address the people of this nation with his Independence Day speech.
Children also received information about the national symbols such as national flag, national anthem, national emblem, national bird and national animal.
The Independence Day celebration included activity sessions wherein, children painted the National flag on a big chart paper.
Later they had great fun dancing to the tunes of the patriotic songs.
