Gandhi Jayanthi Celebration @ Infant Jesus School
“A student is he who continuously uses his faculty of observation and carves out for himself a path of life”. Mahatma Gandhi.
Gandhi Jayanthi was celebrated on 2nd October 2017 at Infant Jesus School. The programme began with a prayer song. A devotional ambience prevailed as the programme started with meaningful prayer service in the form of “Sarva Dharma Prathana”. As Gandhiji said,” The need of the moment is not one religion but mutual respect and tolerance of different religions”. It was proved, as students read each verse from the Bible, Quran and BhagavatGeeta. Rev.Fr.Godwin, Principal addressed the students and exhorted to imbibe the Gandhian principles of truth and non-voilence.

As part of the celebration, a cleanliness drive was held in the school campus. Staff and the students actively and zealously participated in the clean drive as to make the school environment dirt and dust free. At the end of the programme, the school choir sang the hymn “Raghupati Raghava Rajaram” dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi and refreshments were served to everyone as part of the celebration.
