Independence Day is observed on 15th August annually. This day is holds great importance for India
as it marks the nation’s independence from the British Empire. It is a day when people pay homage to
the leaders who fought for India’s independence in the past. The President of India delivers the
“Address to the Nation” on Independence Day eve and India’s Prime Minister unfolds India’s National
flag and delivers a speech at the Red Fort in Old Delhi. Kite flying is observed all over the country
symbolising India’s free spirit.
Nothing is more soothing and relaxing than independence and liberty. At SHEMROCK Hills,
Independence Day was a beautiful affair this year not because the celebration was on a large scale
but because children actively participated in the Independence Day activities. They enjoyed their
freedom through singing, dancing and other activities. Sweets were distributed amongst the students.
To keep alive the flame of patriotism, students performed a patriotic dance and sang songs that
revealed the importance of the day and awakened everyone’s feelings towards our motherland.
Earth Day is celebrated annually on 22nd April. This day reminds us to be better caretakers of mother
earth. Earth Day can be a great time for learning about our environment and the many ways to care
for our planet. At SHEMFORD, we organise several contests and events to celebrate Earth Day and
impart lessons that encourage our children to actively take part in eco-friendly practices.
Grandparents Day is celebrated every year in the month of September. It is not only an exciting way
to make a difference in the education industry and raise grandparent consciousness in schools but
also a great way to help children value and learn the importance of their grandparents in their life.
Grandparents are the root of our family. They are our heritage and essential members of our families.
Therefore, a special day, the National Grandparents Day is set aside every year to honour them. At
SHEMROCK Wonderworld, we organised activities for the children where they spent quality time with
their grandparents in school.
Activities such as dancing, singing songs, poems expressing love & respect and drawing cards
wishing “Happy Grandparents Day” were organised at the school which gave us the chance to
celebrate this day in a beautiful and memorable way.
