Every single person adores children. With their innocent grin and charming personality, they captivate the hearts of all. India commemorates “Children’s Day” on November 14th each year. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first Prime Minister, was born on November 14th, and his birthday is observed as Children’s Day.
The Oxford School honoured Children’s Day in an online mode on November 15, 2021. A ninth-grader, Siddeque Jubair, was elected as the school’s student Prime Minister. Elocution competitions were held as part of it, with the theme “India in the Vision of Jawaharlal Nehru.” He visited all of the classes and delivered the children’s day message.
Music, dances, the task of creating Nehru’s head gear and talks about chachaji were all held in conjunction with the children’s day. ‘I Love You Chachaji’ was the title of a video that was shown as part of the day. A film of Jawaharlal Nehru’s chat with his daughter Indira Priyadharshini Nehru, created by the students, was also shown. The Oxford’s rising stars, who have won awards from organisations such as ISRO and OMG, were also recognised.
