Children’s day marks the birthday of Shri. Jawaharlal Nehru. It is celebrated on 14th November to manifest the work of a great leader and the first Prime Minister of India. Shri. Jawaharlal Nehru was one of the supreme leaders who worked passionately for the welfare of children and the youth soon after independence. His enormous passion about welfare, education and development of children made him popular by the name of “ Chacha Nehru” among young followers and supporters.
The Heritage School believes that this very day celebrates the welfare of the children all over the country. This day aims to honour children globally aiming at fortifying them from working long hours in dangerous circumstances and allowing access to rightful and supreme education. The Top School in Dehradun postulates that Children's Day offers each of us an inspirational entry-point to advocate, promote and celebrate children's rights, translating into dialogues and actions that will build "A World Fit for Children".
The ICSE School in Dehradun state that children see and experience the world differently than adults. Therefore a part of a child’s healthy development is about engaging him with the society and the world around them. With age, the capabilities of children tend to rise and with proper involvement of them, they can make a real and powerful difference in the world around them. The school considers that all the rights of children must be realized including the most disadvantaged.
The school advocates all the parents to take their child to an NGO or children's home on this day and imbibe some precious values in them through such generous acts. This way the child will get to know about the real significance of this day. After all ‘Children will not remember the material things being provided to them but for the feeling that you as a parent cherish them’.
