On the 71st Independence Day of our country, St. Xavier’s School, Umru-Siddhpur kids came with white uniform for the celebration. Fr. Dominic Savio who celebrated his birthday on 15th August 2017 hoisted the National Flag. When all sang the national anthem and saluted the flag they also sang vande matharam. After that all proceeded for the stage performance with prayer, hymns and Independence Day speech by a UKG student. The kids came with different rhymes and performed their talents. Fr. Xavier James gave a speech and encouraged the students and parents. He also gave gifts to the kids. Fr. Dominic Savio spoke about Independence Day and gave away the prizes of different competitions held during the past months. It was a joy to listen to the kids when they gave welcome speech, Independence day speech and vote of thanks. The whole programme was managed by the students. Kudos to the kids and teachers. Thereafter, Parent-Teacher-Student Interaction took place. The parents were shown the progress of the kids. After that all participated in the refreshments and left for their homes.  (Xavier James, 17/08/2017)
