“A country that does not take pride in its language and literature can never progress.”
– Dr. Rajendra Prasad
Every year, September 14th is observed and celebrated as Hindi Diwas. The Constituent Assembly of India had, in 1949, recognized and adopted Hindi — an Indo-Aryan language — as the official language of the newly formed nation. To showcase the importance of the day and the language, a plethora of activities were conducted across Grades I- IV. Students participated in Hindi Spell Bee and enthusiastically tried to get each spelling correct. The Show and Tell activity had highly energetic children who were proud to speak in their national language and showcase their item. Poem Recitation, Slogan Writing and Doha Recitation were among the other major activities that were conducted during the school.
While English is significant in our day-to-day lives, Hindi Diwas helped children understand the importance of our National Language.
