The 74th independence Day celebration in Vidya Mandir School, Mylapore took place online this year. The pandemic and the eventual lockdown took the celebrations to the homes of the students virtually. The event was organised by the students of class 12.
The celebrations began with the flag hoisting by the school principal Mrs. Shobha Raman. After the school prayer, a series of dance and music performance by the students followed online. Students shared the recorded sessions with the school and the teachers scheduled the events and played them online for all the students of the school.
The celebrations ended with a rendition of the customary patriotic song ‘Vande Mataram.’ Many students and parents expressed that the event was beautifully organised and was a treat to the eyes.
