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.
