“Education is the most powerful weapon to change the world”
Keeping in mind the resonance of the above mentioned words, students of classes of K.R. Mangalam World School, Vikas Puri celebrated National Education Day on 11th November, 2019 within the school premises to commemorate the birth anniversary of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad who served as the first prime minister of Education of independent India. To create an awareness amongst the students about the umpteen aspects of education, a poster making competition on the ‘Education –a need of the hour’ was organised wherein students showcased their skills and at the same understood the sheer importance of education in one’s life.
Students raised awareness about literacy and education with the help of self composed poems on ‘Importance of Literacy and Education in today’s world’. Learners became aware about the different statistics involved in the literacy, the new policies initiated by the government to promote literacy amongst the lower strata of society and how they can contribute their bit in promoting literacy. It was mesmerising to see the school premises reverbrating with the young minds’ chant ‘Each one, Teach one’.
