It is said that the greatest need of a person in the feeling of ‘being wanted’ and ‘being noticed’. Children long to be wanted, shown affection and appreciated. Children’s Day celebrated all over India is an attempt in this regard.
At Good Shepherd Finishing School, we celebrated Children’s Day in an entertaining and memorable manner. The regular assembly was conducted by the Staff members at GSFS. The Children’s Day message was delivered by the Dean Ms Neetha Nataraj. In her message she mentioned that Children’s Day is a day to engage in fun and frolic. But it is not just that. This day reminds everyone to renew their promise towards the welfare of the children and to teach them to live like children and for grown-ups it is an occasion for them to re-connect with their inner child.
She added that, Children constitute the greatest asset of a nation. A nation prospers or progresses to the extent where it is able to develop the hidden potential lying untapped in her children. In a country like India, where children constitute a good percentage of the population, we need to give more attention to their all-round development. A day like Children’s Day is a right step in this direction. The day invites all of us to give children their due-love, affection and opportunities for development. Children’s Day also reminds us of the rights of children.
The Faculty members wished the ‘GSFS children’ on the day which was followed by an entertainment Programme.The trip to GSIS and the fruitful time spent to celebrate the day, made it an unforgettable experience.
