The Pre-Primary Section of St Mary’s ICSE celebrated Independence Day with great zeal and festivity. Fr. Swamy, Fr. Lobo, Ms. Clementine Monterio, and Ms. Sandra Fernandes attended the programme. The parents also attended the programme and enthusiastically cheered their boys.
The boys from the Kindergarten section danced gracefully to patriotic songs. They also sang a beautiful song that enthralled the audience. The Preparatory section put up an impressive skit about our national heroes from various states of India like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru , Sarojini Naidu & Subhash chandra Bose etc. The skit depicted how they worked in unity to free India from the British Rule accompanied with a vibrant power point presentation.
The teachers danced to a mash up of patriotic songs which left the audience mesmerized.
The function ended with the National Anthem being sung by the entire audience. This event was full of patriotism and enthusiasm that enkindled a sense of love for our country within the children. It also reminded us of the immense sacrifices of those who gave up their lives for the freedom of India.
