Mangaluru, Oct 3: Observing Gandhiji's ideology of education being a tool to draw out the best in a child, Mount Carmel Central School, Maryhill, on Monday, October 2,  held a cleanliness drive within the school campus and its vicinity, celebrating 'The Mahatma'.

Keeping in mind the legacy of truth, honesty and ahimsa which was left behind by a man of modest living and noble thinking, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, students of grade two of MCCS on Thursday, 28 September, paid a befitting tribute.

The programme commenced paying homage to the father of the nation by students who offered flowers of gratitude and spoke with confidence and pride about the qualities of Gandhiji and more so of how he practiced the virtues of truth, honesty and ahimsa in his daily life.

As a take away message for the students, a skit depicting Gandhiji’s thirst for honesty at a small age of seven years was courageously enacted. Chief guest of the day Jyotsna  applauded the students for their stage programme and gave her message about Gandhiji’s quality of practicing what he preached, through a short story which was very appealing.

The students of class eight depicted the values of Gandhi through a dance, skit and mime. Praise and gratefulness to the Almighty was raised through words and dance. An apt reading from the Bible, was read out. In which mentioned about the use of freedom to love and serve rather than for self-indulgence. Chief guest Sr Snehal, vice principal, emphasized these value in her speech.

The stage programme ended with a serene tune of ‘sabarmati sant’ which indeed Gandhiji was.
