IPHS celebrated UAE National Flag Day on 2nd November, 2017 with great fervour. A series of events were held and the whole school was abuzz with activities. The school building and the corridors were immersed in the colours of flag to celebrate the occasion. Primary Section students followed by tiny tots of our KG section did a procession with their flags and chorus ‘Raise it High, Raise it Proud’. The National Flag, the symbol of Union, dignity and pride was hoisted in the school by the Principal Mrs. Anubha Nijhawan and Vice Principal, Dr. Annamma Mathew. The students as well as the teachers saluted the flag to express loyalty to the prudent leadership and glorification of the country’s national symbol. It was followed by the UAE National Anthem. Ms. Rydham Himanshu Shah of class XIIB and Ms. Nada Ahmed of class XIIA delivered a speech highlighting the importance of the day and the flag which represents the aspirations of the country. Flag Walkathon was organised in which the Student Council, Scouts, Guides and the students of classes VI to XII participated. The slogan ‘Raise it high, Raise it proud’ filled the air with ecstasy. Colourful UAE flags fluttering and waving exhilarated everyone. The students of middle section visited MOE, RAK where they got an opportunity to witness and be the part of the flag hoisting ceremony. The day filled everyone with pride and a sense of belonging to the country.
