JAMMU: G.D Goenka Public school celebrated the auspicious festival of lights with great zest and fervor.
The celebration commenced with prayer, seeking the blessings of the Lord Almighty.
The most prominent issue to ponder over this Diwali has been the excessive use of fire crackers and its impact on the environment, which was demonstrated in the form of a skit. The children showcased their exuberant acting skills through the platform of this skit. The celebration was followed by a melodious song on Diwali and the most enthralling dance performance was given by the children on the excruciating pain Goddess Sita underwent while she was captivated by Ravana. The performance was jaw dropping and gave goose bumps to the entire crowd. The children were dressed as Sita, Ram, Lakshman and Hanuman. They depicted the story of Lord Ram, goddess Sita and Lakshman. They showcased the message of the victory of good over evil. All the children looked ethereal in their beautiful costumes.
In the atmosphere of effulgence, the Principal Rajesh Rathore congratulated children on the auspicious day. He explained how elated he was to see the ecstatic performances of the children. He also appreciated the meticulous efforts of the primary wing under the aegis of Bhavana Jamwal.
He also exhorted the message of saving the planet by going cracker free. He explained how bursting crackers can be harmful for both the environment as well as our furry friends. He also told the children to enjoy this beautiful festival of lights with their family and friends.
In the Middle wing, the celebration began with a soulful song by the school choir, followed by a mesmerizing dance performance, which filled the mystical atmosphere with rhythm and symphony.
In the Sr. Wing, various Inter House and Inter Class Activities were conducted, wherein the students participated with great fervour and enthusiasm.
