The most important day in the calendar of a democratic country is the day that country chooses to become a democratic country. For India that red letter day is Republic Day 26 January is celebrated as the National festival. National festivals are celebrated for two reasons, one to invoke the memory of the brave hearts with whose efforts we have become free and the other is to instill respect in the young minds towards the brave hearts so that when today’s students become tomorrow’s responsible citizens, they have something to look up to. At VPMS Lohegaon Republic day was celebrated with great fervour.
On this 26th January 2017 Nandini Ma’am – Director of School Programme and Joint Secretary of Dr Vikhe Patil Foundation, was the guest of honour. She arrived at 9 am and unfurled the flag on the school ground at 9:15 am. She was welcomed by our Principal Mrs Mrinalini Bhosale.
The school choir sang the patriotic song “ Aisa Desh Hai Mera” to invoke our love for our motherland.
This was followed by a street play on Road Safety. With the help of excellent mime, the students put forth the importance of following safety and traffic rules.
Next, all those athletes who represented VPMS Lohegaon at State & National level were felicitated.
On the occasion of Republic Day, an Inter House choral speaking competition was organised. The theme for the Speech was very apt-instilling values of respect, diligence , courage in our students.
Ruby House stood first in this competition aimed at helping the stundents develop team coordination apart from proper intonation and expression.
The programme was ended with Shashwat Ratna proposing the vote of Thanks.
