RUN FOR UNITY
To commemorate the birth anniversary of the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel as Rashtriya Ekta Diwas Himalayan Progressive School conducted many events in the school. The programme started with a talk on the contribution of Sardar Patel which was followed by the pledge . Sardar Patel was known for his iron will as he united many small states to form Indian Union. To pay tribute to his note worthy work, RUN FOR UNITY was conducted. The children of different age groups from Himalayan Progressive school , Little Angel, Nalanda School , Gurukul and Beershiba started their march from their schools and assembled at Patel Chowk,Awas Vikas,Kichha . The sprinters marched from there to DD Chawk and running through the main market gathered at Rajiv Gandhi Community Hall and then returned to their schools. Striking catchphrases by the students attracted the local people and some of them joined the procession happily and enquired about the event and praised their spirit. Presence of reporters from leading newspapers enthralled the children and held their moral up. Participating in such outing for a cause certainly enhanced their confidence. Other than this, many students from different classes participated in collage and poster making on the topic unity and integrity. They made eye catching art work under the guidance of Mr. Sunil Kumar. The Colour was combined with good creativity which was reflected in their creation to a great extent. The fervour of the occasion solely gripped the whole ambience and kept everybody bustling .
