WORLD STUDENTS’ DAY CELEBRATED AT INDIAN SCHOOL SALALAH
Unarguably the most loved President of India, Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam was a scientist who made India proud with his missile defence programme. But his favourite job was teaching and that’s how he wanted the world to remember him. Due to his love for students and focus on promoting education, the United Nations declared his birthday (October 15) as ‘World Students’ Day’ in 2010.
Science Department of Indian School Salalah celebrated the World Student’s Day on 17th October 2018 in the school Auditorium. The programme commenced with a prayer song by Ms. Harsha of class X F. It was followed by the welcome address by Ms. Aiman Arif of class VIII H. Master Samved Shaji of class VIII B declamated the famous letter sent by Chief Seattle to Franklin Prince, President of the United States, which is considered as one of the well-known pleas for the cause of Nature even before the ‘ Green Movement’. By presenting that letter on this occasion Master Samved conveyed a strong message to students, to protect mother Earth.
Ms. Ananya, Master Astitva Singh, Ms. Sirjan Kaur and Master Jatin Soni of class IX drew the special attention of the audience about the exemplary life of Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam, through a power point presentation. Master Salman’s beautiful Tamil song with the support of Master Ahit and Ben Moses with key board and drums was a melodious treat to the audience.
To mark the event more lively Master Sanketh Naik declamated the inspirational speech about knowledge rendered by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam at SRM University.
