School children, both girls and boys clad in multi-colour costume performed an eye-catching cultural show and enthralled a gathering of the public, police and government officials at the Republic Day celebration held at the District Sports Complex in Dindigul on Thursday.

While girls and boys representing various school danced for patriotic songs and Bharathiyar poems, students of John Paul Matriculation Higher Secondary School enacted farmers' struggle on the field in a poetic way. There was a harmony in their movements.

Students from Government Girls Higher secondary School and Annamalaiyar Girls Higher secondary School put up a brilliant show with their group dance.
