Celebrating Festivals

In our multicultural society we need to instill and enforce the universal values of brotherhood, tolerance, peace, compassion, patriotism and solidarity in our children. A celebration in the form of special assemblies is an effort to sensitize students towards living in harmony in a diverse society. They are taught to learn to use their thinking ability and skills to work for a safe and better world and to live in harmony with their fellow beings.

Noida, November 27, 2012: Guruparv, the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Devji, was recently celebrated at Apeejay School, Noida with great enthusiasm. A special assembly was organised which commenced with the chanting of the “Ek Onkar”, the opening lines of the Guru Granth Sahib. It was followed by a soulful rendition of a ‘Shabad’ by the school choir.

The highlight of the day was the distribution of the ‘Prasad’ to the entire school. The entire school pitched in by bringing ingredients for the Prasad from their homes. The coming together of staff and students in the preparation of the Prasad further reinforced the principle of ‘community kitchen’, central to the teachings of Sikhism.
