SREE VIDYANIKETHAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL TIRUPATHI
CHILDREN’S DAY CELEBRATIONS
Children’s Day is celebrated on November 14 commemorating the birthday of first Prime Minister of independent India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. Known for his love and affection towards children, his birthday came to be celebrated as children’s day in the country. He was affectionately addressed as Chacha Nehru by children. Also, known as Bal Divas, the day is celebrated with much zeal and enthusiasm in the country. Along with children’s day being a fun day for kids, it also tries to emphasize on children’s rights and needs. It talks about the importance of the right to education, care, and a safe childhood. Nehru is often cited as saying that children should be lovingly nurtured as they are nation’s future citizens.
At Sree Vidyanikethan International School we celebrated Children’s Day with great pomp. Teachers took the lead to conduct the assembly. Children were enthralled to see the teachers performing dance, skit and a heart touching story narration. The Principal encouraged the students with his inspiring speech. The Principal, Vice Principals and all the teachers paid homage to the portrait of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. It was a day to cherish. Children had a lovely time watching ‘Matilda’, a children’s movie.
