International Women’s Day

The most beautiful thing a woman can wear is confidence. Confidence is a belief in oneself. It means viewing mistakes as learning opportunities, saying “I can” instead of “I can’t,” and believing that one can face life’s challenges and succeed. It is correctly said that “We have never met a woman who is not strong. They don’t exist.”

International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on 8 th March to recognize the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and to call for gender equality. In August 1910, Clara Zetkin a leading German socialists proposed the establishment of an annual International Woman’s Day as a strategy to promote equal rights.

To honour womanhood, Vikhe Patil Memorial School Pune celebrated International Women’s Day with a great enthusiasm. On the zealous morning of 8 th March, a special assembly was conducted by the students of Std. V in the Amphitheatre of the school.

Prayer is our conversation with God and how we can develop a personal and meaningful relationship with the God of the universe who loves us. The male staff members of the school expressed their gratitude towards the women by saying an inspirational prayer to have the joy and positivity in the life of every woman and to celebrate the power of womanhood as a whole.

As spring brings colours and beauty evokes the emotions of joy and happiness and infuses us with energy likewise women too in every role of our life turn out to be understanding, wonderful and marvellous. They are the real architects of our society. After the prayer, it was time for a group of girls beautifully dressed in yellow and green saris with neatly tucked flowers in their hair to present “Rabindra Nritya” a colourful
performance to welcome the Spring season.

The next performance was “She Inspired Us” a skit showcased the role of a woman in the family and in the society. The varieties of role she plays are those of a mother, teacher, doctor, soldier, champion, sportsman, a beauty queen and many more. Women are the key to sustainable development and quality of life in the family.

The last part of the assembly was “The Walk of Honour” when the song “She’s Not Just A Pretty Face” by the Canadian singer-songwriter Shania Twain was played in the background and all female teachers came up on the stage. It was truly a heartwarming moment for everyone. Students began to cheer up for their teachers when they saw them together on the stage. A specially designed bookmark was given as a token of appreciation to each phenomenal educator on the stage.

The vigor, enthusiasm and involvement felt among the students and the guidance and encouragement of our beloved Principal Mrinalini Ma’am turned the day into a memorable one.
