Buddhi celebrated India’s 72nd Independence Day this year with much gaiety and childlike patriotic fervour. Grandparents, parents and other guests graced the occasion with their presence and made the celebration that much more special! Children and the Buddhi staff & teachers arrived proudly dressed in national colors to their school, bedecked in beautiful tri color decorations, all of which were made by the children in the weeks running up to this important date!
The celebration started with a team of children unfurling the national flag while the entire Buddhi team enthusiastically sang the national anthem. The children and teachers had produced an interesting cultural show comprising of various performances and a patriotic dedication to the brave soldiers of India. The show started with a short skit on ‘bravery’ by the senior primary children and the juniors danced to the rhythmic ‘One India’ mashup medley, with much enthusiasm and surprising grace! This was followed by the senior primary children presenting a beautiful rendition of a Bengali song extolling the the beauty of our land.
The high school students spoke about the Indian Gallantry Awards and dedicated their talk to the brave soldiers of independent India! The entire primary group of children then walked the fashion ramp exhibiting their very own creations which they had worked hard on during their learning about Independent India in their Discovery classes that term. This was followed by an athletic show of fitness by the senior primary children, which had them racing through hurdles and obstacles to the tagline – ‘Hum Fiit toh India Fit!’. Last but not the least, was the awards presentation for the recently concluded Buddhi Matches, and trophies and medals for swimming, badminton and football were handed to the winners. Nobody was disappointed as everyone carried home certificates for participating successfully. The programme ended with the Buddhi school band playing the ‘Jai Ho’ song much to the delight of a by now mesmerized audience. JAI HIND!
