Spring Daleans pay rich tributes to Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru on Children’s Day
The management, staff and students of Spring Dale Senior School paid rich tributes to India’s first Prime Minister Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru on the occasion of his 126th Birth Anniversary, which is also celebrated as Children’s Day in India.
A festive aura pervaded the school premises as students from classes VI to XII zestfully participated in the celebrations organized in the school premises. Attired in colourful clothes, students participated in activities including card and poster making.
Upholding the philanthropic legacy of the institution, these students then reached out to their counterparts studying at Citizens Forum Vidya Mandir, Maqboolpura, Central Khalsa Orphanage, GT Road, and Nishkam Sewa Public School, with sweets and the cards that they had made.
“Besides affording students with a chance to have fun at school, the celebration aimed at invoking their creative faculties to generate something useful with which they could reach out to the underprivileged students to instill in them a sense of social recognition, which was the dream of Pt Nehru as well as that of our founders as well,” said Mr Rajiv Kumar Sharma, Principal, Spring Dale Senior School.
Dr Kirat Sandhu Cheema, Director, Spring Dale Senior School, and Mr Sahiljit Singh Sandhu, Managing Trustee, Spring Dale Educational Society, said that seeing students prepare posters and cards for their underprivileged counterparts was quite an exhilarating experience.
“Education at Spring Dales is not only about facts and figures, but also deals with values and feelings. The gesture shown by our students to the underprivileged students from other schools would go a long way in instilling a sense of belongingness among these students,” they said.
