BK Birla Centre for Education celebrated the country’s 66th republic day with all pomp and show. The activities of the day started with a solemn flag unfurling ceremony conducted at the lawn tennis court at 8:30am. Principal Dr SK Sanyal unfurled the tri colour flag and gave the republic day message. At the command of the school captain Master Nikhil Bollapragada, the whole school including teachers, students, and the staff of admin, medical, mess and security departments, saluted the fluttering flag.
In a colourful programme that was conducted in the school auditorium, all the four houses – Agni, Prithvi, Salil and Vyom – competed to bring out their best and to outdo the other through patriotic songs, dances, skits, power point presentations, videos and a panel discussion. A video in which teachers hailing from different states conveyed their republic day greetings in their mother tongues (15 languages) was a captivating one. The programme that started around 10am wound up by 12:30pm.
