Academic Advisor of Zebar School, Ms Radhika Iyer graced the occasion.
A patriotic speech by Aanya Parekh of grade 8 A highlighted the freedom legacy of our country. She sensitised her peers to work towards fulfilling the promises we made to our freedom fighters.
The Principal,Ms. Sharmistha Sinha in her address said, “Period of misfortune, the rule of the British has ended to give a beginning to a new era where we have to bring in a change…..a change which should lead us to perfection. Ma’am Principal reminded the gathering that we feel more about our rights and less towards our duties and responsibilities. She urged the students to never compromise on values and principles.
Students pledged to remember those patriots who gave them their freedom and salute the martyrs who shed their blood at the borders to secure the security and integrity of our nation.
