“Our unity is our strength and our diversity is our Power.”
National Unity Day is celebrated to mark the birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel, popularly known as the “Iron Man of India" Sardar Patel. As an endeavor to solidify the bond of oneness and unification, Presidium School celebrated the birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel as Rashtriya Ekta Diwas. Students were dressed in costumes representing India from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. It was a treat for the eyes to see them dressed. They greeted their teachers in their local languages and also showed different ways of greeting. They showed different modes of living, different food habits, different worshipping styles of God. To spread the message of unity in diversity, students also took the pledge of unity during their class. The idea was to infuse in the young future generation, the values integrated with the knowledge and adoration about the country's rich heritage and inculcate admiration for the values of honesty, loyalty, truthfulness.
