Sepoy Mutiny observed

Sepoy Mutiny, revolt by soldiers of British-colonised India against the British rule, was observed by the students and staff of Sri Prakash Vidyaniketan on Wednesday. Sepoy Mutiny is also known as Indian Rebellion of 1857. It is deemed the first revolutionary movement against the British rulers that paved the path for the freedom struggle.

The students were enlightened on how the city became a pioneer in Sepoy Mutiny. However, there are no remnants left in the city except the grave of Kingsford Venner in Old Town cemetery, which too is in a derelict condition. All students and staff participated in the commemoration with great pride.

‘Joy of Giving Fortnight’

Pragathi Schools celebrated the “Joy of Giving Fortnight” from 21st August to 5th September to commemorate the 102nd birth anniversary of Mother Teresa on August 28 to create a value structure in the hearts of both teachers and children in sync with her teachings.

The teachers made and distributed worksheets on Mother Teresa after telling children about her life, work and teachings through highly informative and touching presentations. Mother Teresa, the beacon of compassion had said “It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving”.

Children of Pragathi participated wholeheartedly in the noble endeavour of giving whatever they want to children in orphanages.

Tejaswini of grade IX said, “I don’t want to give old clothes or toys even if they are in very good condition. I saved my pocket money to buy new dresses to be given as gifts to the less fortunate children.” The parents too warmly embraced the idea.

Beautiful gifts, dresses, colourful books and toys piled up as one after the other children poured out their love for the children of the orphanages in the locality, making their teachers very proud.

The primary schoolchildren, along with their teachers, took the gift packages to the orphanages. They also took fresh fruits along with them, played games with the children there and had a great time.

Hindi Diwas celebrated

“Hindi hai hum,Watan hai, Hindustaan Hamara”. This line reverberated in the school campus on September 14, when Hindi Diwas was celebrated with great enthusiasm, by the primary wing of Meredian School for Boys and Girls, Banjara Hills.

Earlier, Sunita gave everyone an insight about the importance of the day and needless to say, the celebration was an out and out Hindi affair.

It was amazing to see tiny tots reciting poems of the famous poet Maithilisharan Gupt. Children participated in the event with exceptional enthusiasm and their energy spoke for them. Their enthusiasm showed that Hindi was not just a subject for them but a bridge that connects our nation.

Pusthi Ladda of class I, winner of Glendale Inter School Competition, enthralled the audience with her performance. Words of appreciation by Head of Department of Hindi, Vandana Srivastava and Rahat, filled the teachers with energy. The celebrations were aimed at making the children feel closer to the language.
