Mangaluru, Aug 16, 2019: August 15, 2019, was a day patriotism and exhilaration on the campus of St. Agnes CBSE School, Bendore, Mangaluru. This august day was celebrated with great pride and festivity. The occasion was graced by Col. Ravindra Maan, Administrative Officer of the Mangaluru NCC Headquarters. The celebration by the students of the primary and high school under the able guidance of their teachers was an appreciable event.
The programme began with the honourable Chief Guest hoisting the tricolour in the presence of the entire school fraternity. Patriotism could be clearly witnessed when there was a downpour but not a single person moved during the Flag hoisting and the National Anthem. The meditations brought the realization that we as a nation need to break the shackles of corruption, hatred, discrimination and so on; the people suffering due to rain and floods were remembered. The students paid their respect to the armed forces through a dance, creative tableau on the life of a soldier and mime.
The Chief Guest in his message gave a call to girls to be a part of the armed forces and in turn serve the Nation. He greatly appreciated the efforts of the students and teachers in putting up the programme. This culmination of song, dance and skits left a lasting impression audience it was clear.
