A Tribute to Indian Soldiers by GRADE 4C
A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.
Our Indian army has a rich history of contributing to global welfare and security issues before and after independence. The students of IES expressed their admiration and gratitude to the Indian Army with great zeal by hosting an assembly, to honour the soldiers who lived, survived & died while protecting our country’s independence & dignity. They demonstrated the army’s strengths, bravery, daring, and dedication to the nation in a befitting manner.
‘A Tribute to Indian Soldiers’ assembly was hosted by grade 4 D this year on May 28 at 10 a.m. in the school auditorium. The parents of the students of grades 4D were the special invitees for the event. The assembly showcased many impressive performances which were meticulously coordinated by the class teacher, Ms. Tintu Lijo, Grade 4 coordinator, Ms. Sheeja John and the emcees, Riya Satheesh and Ryan Brijesh Mathew of grade 4D.
The programs included inspirational quotes, patriotic song, a presentation on Evolution of the Tricolour, patriotic poem, a thought- provoking video presentation, which portrayed the sacrifices our army goes through every day to keep our country and our people safe. The students expressed their respect and love for the great soldiers who are the backbone of our nation through a beautifully choreographed dance drama under the guidance of the dance teacher, Ms. Sruthi Binu.
The Headmistress, Ms. Muneera Mammikutty spoke to the children about the selfless service rendered by our soldiers. She asked them to imbibe qualities like bravery, grit, and patriotism from their life. She thanked all the parents for being present amidst their busy schedules. She concluded her speech by reading out a poem penned by her to honour the real heroes of our nation which inspired, motivated, and illuminated the young minds.
O! Sons and daughters of the soil
For us day and night you toil
Your life is a tale of endless strife
You give your all to give us all a beautiful life
O’ Guardian of our land!
You have braved bombs, bullets and climes
To give us more peaceful times
For you there’s no rest nor mirth
You die a thousand times before your final death
Our tribute to you O’ martyred daughters and sons,
Whose mothers sacrificed you for our motherland,
To you we owe in tons
For this safe and secure land.
The assembly ended on a patriotic note with the rendition of the Indian National Anthem.
