Early in the morning of the 15th August we gathered in the School ground. Our teacher also joined us in a few minutes. There we stood round the flag pole. We were asked to stand class wise. The teachers stood behind us. On our Principal’s request, the Chairman of School Governing Body came forward to perform the flag-hoisting ceremony. He was in his happy mood. Exactly at eight the flag was hoisted. We stood in attention to give salute to the flag. After the flag ceremony Jan Gan Man was sung. The scouts’ band played the tune. The flag ceremony came to a close with a few speeches delivered by the Teachers. Al the speakers threw light on the importance of the day and our duties towards the country. We were very glad when the principal announced that each of us would get a packet of sweets. Conclusion:
Thus we celebrated our Independence Day in our school. Every Indian must take an oath on the Independence Day to remain loyal and patriotic and to save his or her beloved motherland from any outside attack or humiliation, even at the cost of his or her life.
