To celebrate the birth anniversary of the Father of our Nation an all faith prayer meeting was held at Ecole Globale School on 2nd of October’ This day is also celebrated as the ”International Day of Non- Violence“. The programme started with the lighting of the lamp by the principal followed by the singing of ” Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram”, ”Vaishnav Jan” and ”Ekla Chalo”. To put into practice Gandhiji’s beliefs of respect and tolerance towards other religions, recitals from Gita, Quran, Guru Granth Sahib and Bible were read. Preachings from religions like Jainism and Buddhism were also read out. The sounds of the bhajans and the hymns created an atmosphere of serenity and peace. A sense ofcalm and equanimity prevailed.
In keeping with the tradition of our school, we dedicated 2nd October to Shramdaan. The girls of the four houses were allotted four different areas in school and they set to work with brooms, duster cloths, etc.
