It was a cherished morning at Shemford Pinjore, when the Shemstars greeted one another on the onset of the new year, Baisakhi. The Shemstars of the Primary and Pre Primary wing brought into the premises all the hues of life being clad in bright Punjabi attire. Beautiful dances presented by them left the audience enthralled. Speeches and poems were also delivered to enlighten them about the reason to celebrate this event.
The Shemstars paid homage to the martyrs by depicting their sacrifices through a beautifully enacted skit which filled everybody’s eyes with tears. The silence that prevailed in the school hall after the skit seemed to announce the commitment of the Shemstars towards their motherland. This Baisakhi also marked the hundred years of the massacre at Jallianwala Bagh in 1919.
To honour the principal architect of the Constitution of India, Dr. B R Ambedkar, speeches were delivered in his honour and a quiz was conducted on the life and works of the great personality. The Principal, Ms Amita Dhaka guided the students to understand their responsibility towards the nation and adhere to the Constitution of India in true spirit. She also conveyed her greetings and a prosperous new year to the Shemstars and their families.
