The school celebrated Independence day with zeal and fervor. The students came gaily dressed in the colours of the national flag. The founder Chairperson, Dr. Lilly George, along with the Principal and staff joined in the festivities. The national flag was hoisted in the school premises. Students enjoyed flying tri coloured kites which dotted the sky spreading message of joy and vigour. Tri- coloured balloons were released by Dr. Lilly George and the students of the school, symbolizing the spirit of freedom. Children participated in the patriotic song competition with a lot of pride and enthusiasm. Some even danced to the foot taping music. Aerobic exercises performed by the young Shalomites were the center of attraction.
