Every year on 8 September, International Literacy Day is celebrated around the world in honour of literacy and to bring awareness to the importance of closing the literacy gap. Children of grade 1 conducted a special assembly on World Literacy Day, where a beautiful message of ‘Lending a Reading hand’ was conveyed. The assembly started with a speech, where children were told the importance and meaning of literacy. They were conveyed that, literacy is not a luxury but a right and a responsibility. It was followed with a beautiful Nukkad Natak. The day was concluded by a pledge taken by all to lend a ‘Reading’ hand on this literacy day and spread education all around.
