International Family Day observed at Meenakshi World School
Families are the compass that guides us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter.
On Tuesday, 15th May 2018, students of Meenakshi World School assembled together for a special assembly on International Day of Families. This day was observed to help children understand the values of a close knit family. According to the United Nations, family is the basic unit of a society. The International Day of Families provides an opportunity to promote awareness of issues relating to families and to increase knowledge of the social, economic and demographic processes affecting them. In the interactive assembly that was conducted, students watched a Ppt that sensitized them towards the need to respect not only one’s own family but also the global family that transcends boundaries of states and nations. Students also read out poems depicting their love for family. At the end they shared with each other why they considered their family as the best. They also wrote beautiful messages on the board specially designed for this purpose.
