This was followed by the Oath taking ceremony, wherein the House Captains of Subroto House, Arjan House, Katre House, Latif House and Pratap House took the oath to respect and follow the rules and regulations which govern them and with the desire to participate in the true spirit of sportsmanship for the honour of their school and for the glory of the sport.

Thereafter, Wing Commander Pushpa Thakur, addressed the students and asked them the one thing which ‘sport’ teaches us.  This created a lot of excitement among the students and they were invited to share their responses. She motivated the students with her inspiring words and urged them to focus on their aim, in order to, achieve it. She also insisted that we all should be grateful for what we have and appreciate all that life has to offer us, by accepting it and not giving up under any circumstances. With these inspiring words Wing Commander Pushpa Thakur, declared the Sports Meet open.

    CELEBRATION OF INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITY (03 DEC 2019)

    International Day for Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) was celebrated at ‘The Air Force School’ Junior Wing, on 3rd Dec. 2019. Through this we tried to create awareness amongst students, sensitize them and also make them more empathetic towards differently-abled persons. The theme for this year’s celebration was to make the future accessible which our students do by involving their differently-abled classmates in all activities at school.  

    Various videos were shown to students on the theme, followed by class discussions in which students actively participated. They ensure that all their friends, despite their differences, are accepted and equally valued.

    A drawing and colouring competition was conducted for students with special needs. Their work was displayed at school and these artists were given prizes for their art work. The school also observed ‘Mute time’ during the day when all students and staff members used only nonverbal means of communication to interact with each other.  The objective was not only to help children imbibe empathy for the differently-abled but also to appreciate the blessings they have in life.
