Independence Day 2019
Independence Day in NPS HSR was celebrated with much fanfare. The programme started with the hoisting of the National Flag and a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem. Then Principal Ms. Shefali Tyagi addressed the audience with an inspiring speech. This year too as always she had a touching tale about a martyr- Nirmal Singh Sekhon- which filled the hearts of the audience with a sense of patriotism and a desire to serve the nation in their own way. She urged the students to take up initiatives in their small ways to serve society, which will go a long way in bringing glory to our nation.
The speech was followed by programmes put up by the different clubs of the school. The literary club put up a poetry recital, the drama club portrayed a heart touching skit based on lesser known and unsung women martyrs, who had laid down their lives for the sake of the country. The dance club put up a mesmerizing dance and the students of the music club moved the entire audience with their soul stirring performance. The students of the Art Club left the audience speechless with their live art, creating a beautiful canvas painting of Mahatma Gandhi, Lotus our national flower and peacock our national bird, and melodious music playing in the background. The media club had created a very interesting and thought provoking movie on what freedom means to us. It gave the audience the opportunity to ponder upon their own perspectives as to what liberty meant to them. The audience was awe-struck with the immense talent that the students displayed during the programme.
