Independence Day Programme (IGCSE), WIS Pawan Baug (2020-2021)

 Freedom in our Minds, Faith in our Words, Pride in our Souls

Independence Day is a day to rejoice and celebrate as it unfolds the touching stories of the past and the glorious progress India has made. It marks the anniversary of national independence from the British Empire. It is the most auspicious day for the people of India because India attained independence after a lot of hardships and sacrifices of the brave freedom fighters.

No doubt, Covid 19 is one of the dire threats that the world has ever faced, but it has made every one realize the need for hope, solidarity and desire for togetherness.

Unlike previous years, celebrations have been restricted to virtual mediums. Although Covid 19 has added a twist to the Independence Day celebrations, the patriotic fervor among the Wittians remained the same. To get the students into the festive mood many art and craft activities were conducted for the students of all grades a week prior. Kids prepared brilliant creative tricolor badges, drawings and innovative ideas were showcased through stencil art.

The feather in the cap was that the students took up the challenging task of presenting an online show. Incredible indeed!!! To inspire and ignite patriotism among the future Indians a wide range of colorful cultural program was organized. The day started off with the flag hoisting ceremony, followed by welcome speech given by Master Rahil Zaveri, the newly elected male School President. Melodious patriotic songs, a mesmerizing dance, and a marvelous skit were presented. This glorious day would seem incomplete without commemorating the legendary poets so Kavi Sammelan was a part of the program.

The entire program kept the audience engrossed to the core.

Principal Sir, Mr. Bijo Kurian quoted, “A responsible citizen is one of the dominant pillars of the country, so it’s the duty of the students to take up the moral responsibilities and duties. We at Witty believe in creating ideal future citizens.”

On this auspicious day headmistress Ms. Swapna Shaji stated, “A team is like a tool set, not one tool can do all the jobs, but together it can.” So ma’am requested everyone to work with dedication and take the school to the pinnacle of success.

As all good things come to an end, so did this event. The newly elected female School President, Miss Aashvi Sanghvi proposed the vote of thanks.

The virtual celebration created history for the Wittians to cherish.
