“Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.”

As we celebrate the 74th Independence Day, our young Shalomites reminisced the sacrifices made by our valiant freedom fighters to ensure that we breathe in a free country. With an aim to make the students understand the true worth of this Independence and their responsibilities towards their nation, week long activities were conducted that culminated on August 14’ 20, wherein they were made to participate in a plethora of activities, from patriotic poem recitation, enacting their favourite patriotic heroes to celebrating the rich cultural heritage of their motherland, India by learning about the culture, cuisine, famous historical places and famous personalities of the different states of India. The spirited participation of the students was an icing on the cake that was applauded by both parents and teachers equally.
