With great fervor and festivity St. Mary’s ICSE celebrated our 73rd Independence Day on 15th August . The Consul General of Spain, Mr. & Mrs. Jorge de Lucas Cadenas graced the occasion as our Honorable Chief Guest.
We started with the unfurling of the tricolour flag in the open. The students along with the teachers and parents moved to the auditorium. The function started with a Prayer Dance followed by speech in Hindi by the students of class 10 motivating our pupils to reach the heights of patriotism. Then followed a PPT on the same lines, a dance recital on the martyrs of India which moved us to tears.
The school band played some very patriotic songs. It was followed by the felicitation of our Honorable Chief Guest and the awarding of all 90% and above achievers in the recent ICSE BOARD EXAMINATIONS 2018-2019.
There was an interactive session with the Honorable Chief Guest. The programme concluded with Vande Mataram.
