Every year Sewa Diwas is celebrated in Delhi Public School to thank the diligence of the Sunshine Staff. It is a small endeavour to thank them for their efforts and this is done by the students who make this day special for them through their small gestures.
A special assembly was organized by the teachers and the students of the Junior Wing to honour the Sunshine Staff on September 17, 2018. Children acknowledged the hard work of the Sunshine Staff through aesthetic ‘Thank You’ badges and welcomed them by applying tilak on their foreheads.
After the chanting of a Shloka and soulful prayer song, Ms. Rajni delved upon the significance of Sewa Diwas and thanked the entire Sunshine Staff for their commendable service. A short, humorous play was presented by the students of Class V followed by the pledge administrated by the Principal, Ms. Balmit Kaur. Then the teachers presented a heartening song with beautiful lyrics written by Late Mr. Atal Bihari Bajpayee. Thereafter students entertained the audience with the famous dance form of Punjab, ‘Bhangra’ on tapping dhol beats. In the end Mr. Hemant Sarraf, the head of Sunshine Staff, in his address, expressed his appreciation for the Sunshine Staff for their indefatigable efforts and added that the welfare of the children should be their utmost priority always.
In the evening, in the school campus, ‘Vishwakarma Puja,’ was also performed where a ‘Hawan’ was carried out and later ‘prasad’ of fruits was distributed to each member.
A sprightly celebration which commenced with Vishwakarma Puja on 17 September 2018 extended to evening’s festivities through a variety of cultural and musical performances on September 22, 2018. The Support Staff along with their families graced the occasion. Mr. Vishwanath took the forefront and managed the lined up activities. The Support Staff participated wholeheartedly in the celebration. As a gesture of appreciation for the help extended to us, the Principal, Ms. Balmit Kaur distributed gifts to the Outsource Staff. She reiterated that the school would not have reached the heights of excellence without their assistance. Dinner was arranged in Cafeteria wherein everyone joined in with hearts bounteous with joy, peace and cheerfulness.
