Republic Day Celebrations at our street school

This report in from Priyanka:
On 26th January, our street school children along with the assistance of our volunteer teachers put together a brilliant song and dance show.
The emcee for the event was one of our school kids, Sebastian. The flag hoisting was followed by the national anthem. The younger kids sang 'nanha munha raahi hoon main' followed by dance performances on marathi folk songs by the older kids. A short speech on the importance of Republic Day and Jawaharlal Nehru was delivered by two kids of the school.
As it happened during the 15th Aug celebrations last year, this time too lots of passers-by joined in to motivate the kids and watch their performances. Many building residents also came to see the kids perform.
It is good to see that the kids are growing in confidence when performing/singing/talking in front of a crowd.
All in all it was a wonderful way to celebrate Republic Day and an auspicious start to the year!
