Sr. Dr Lydia Fernandes A.C in her speech mentioned the true meaning of freedom. The feeling of Mother India was awakened through a patriotic song.
In connection with this celebration, a series of online competitions were arranged for the students of SAS. These competitions were planned during the first week of August. We believe that the competitions are a fusion of talent, imagination, creativity and alertness. Traditional dress, card making, singing, fancy dress on national symbols and freedom fighters were some of the competitions conducted for the students’ upto grade 5. Grade 6 to 10 had role-play, poster making, drawing and tricolour badges. The winners and the participants were appreciated by giving e-certificate for their wonderful performance. The Management and staff congratulate all the participants and value the contribution of the parents for inculcating patriotism in young minds.
Let’s celebrate the glory of a free India and uphold the pride and honour of being an Indian.
