The ICSK Khaitan paid reverential homage to Mahatma Gandhi on his birth anniversary on 2nd Oct. 2013 by organizing a solemn function in which primary students presented glimpses of Mahatma’s life and message. A melodious composition on the motto ‘Jai Jawan Jai Kisan’ was given a soulful rendition by the school choir. The students had dressed up as Gandhiji and Jawaharlal Nehru to show their affection and admiration to the father of nation and other leaders. The speeches by the teacher and students threw light on Gandhji’s life and enhanced their students’ knowledge on the teachings of Mahatma.
Principal, in his speech elaborated on the noble values taught by our great leaders. He emphasized the thought that the weak can never forgive, forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
