“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” -Nelson Mandela.
Education is not the learning of facts but the training of the mind to think. National Education Day was celebrated with great verve and zeal by the students of National Public School on 18 November 2020 as a remembrance of the birth anniversary of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad who was a great freedom fighter, an eminent educationist and the first Union Minister of Education. The students delivered inspiring speeches on the contribution of Azad in laying the foundations of education system and the nation’s commitment to all aspects of education. Various activities were organized to mark the occasion for students of Classes 6 to 8.
Class 6 exhibited fascinating and colourful slogans which read “Education is a must for all”. The students of Class 7 highlighted the role of education through inspiring and powerful quotes and also brought to the forefront the policies and ideals envisioned by Maulana Kalam Azad. The virtual classrooms echoed with banner cards and slogans displayed and presented by the students of Class 8 on the importance of literacy. The persuasive slogans exhibited by the students were not only a visual treat but also emphasized that, Education is the need of the hour.
