Republic day anchoring


Republic Day Anchoring



 “Ask not what your country can do for you,

Ask what you can do for your country”

A very pleasant, jubilant and exuberant morning to one and all present.

First of all, we extend a warm welcome to our respected Chief Guest, Respected Principal, Director/Managing Director, honoured guests and invitees, respected faculty and lovely audience. We welcome you all.

Today, we all are glowing with double enthusiasm. Can you tell why?

Yes, As we all have gathered to celebrate our national festival, Republic Day.

No, not really. This year it is a double bonanza as this year Republic Day is being hailed as diamond jubilee of our Republic Day and we are celebrating 75 years of India becoming a Republic nation.

Wow, that’s indeed a great accolade and a proud moment for all the Indians.

I invite all to join this nationwide celebration.

Let’s begin the celebration with flag hoisting followed by the national anthem.

I request the Chief Guest, honourable …………. and the Principal/Director ……………….. to unfurl the tricolour. I also request everyone to stand in attention for the national anthem.

Flag Hoisting/National Anthem

I request everyone to be seated and enjoy the cultural programme that is coming your way.

"Shaheedon ki chitaon pe lagenge har baras mele

Watan pe marnewalon ke yahi vaki nishan hoga"

No celebration of our country can commence without paying tribute to our freedom fighters who shed their blood like sweat so that we can witness the dawn of freedom and breathe in the breeze of free country.

Indeed, our freedom fighters and martyrs shall always be remembered with pride and celebrated with jubilation.

At the very outset, let us all pray to the Almighty for the unity, solidarity, progress and prosperity of our nation and all the Indians.

I request ………….. to lead us into the prayer.


Now, I would like to request our honourable Chief Guest to enlighten us on this auspicious occasion.

Address by the Chief Guest

Thank you sir for sharing your valuable thoughts.

India that is Bharat is known for its spirit of assimilating foreign influences and welcoming new customs and traditions, and thus becoming a panorama of varied cultures. The glimpse of India’s true spirit that is unity in diversity will be a treat to watch.

Unparalleled is the enthusiasm, the charm and the excitement of the young kids in displaying their love for the nation.

As they dress up in traditional outfits and colourful costumes, they depict rich culture and heritage, traditional variety and unique diversity of India.

Now, let’s witness innocent kids brimming with immense enthusiasm presenting a cute dance performance displaying the dances of various regions of India. Let’s have a quick glance of India’s Unity in Diversity. 

Cultural Dance

The republic day is marked by joyous celebration across the country. It is the euphoric celebration among people irrespective of their religion, caste and ideology. For kids it is a fun filled day as they dress up in tricolour outfits.

But, as they dress up in the attire and appearance of great Indian leaders they depict the valour of Rani Lakshmi Bai, Sukhdev, Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, Subhash Chandra Bose and salute the ideals of Bhim Rao Ambedkar, Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindra Nath Tagore and other unsung heroes paying homage to their efforts to make India a glorious nation. Let's rejoice this moment and give tribute to the great leaders and the builders of our nation. Let’s welcome the kids with all the gusto.

Fancy Dress Show

This is incredibly commendable. These children truly deserve a huge round of applause.

"Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high

Where knowledge is free .................. Into such heaven of freedom

My God, let my country awake."

True to the vision of Rabindra Nath Tagore we are celebrating this Republic day to commemorate 75 years of progressive Republic India and the glorious history of its people, culture and achievements, vision and ambition.

Today, we hail progressive India's socio-cultural, political and economic identity, empowered by the spirit of Atmanirbhar Bharat.

Our friend ……………….. is here with us to speak his/her heart out on this Republic day and its significance essaying our role in making India a progressive country, let’s welcome him/her.


Republic day is such a big moment for all the Indians, a moment of pride and a moment of glory.

Today is the day wherein we take a trip down the memory lane of our golden heritage when the constitution of India came into force on this day in 1950. Here we have coming up next, a street play that will enrich us about the significance of this day and remind us of our fundamental rights and duties.

Street Play

It was awesome! This performance needs great cheers.

True, I didn’t know so much about our rights and duties.

Let’s honour our constitution in hearts!

Let’s salute its makers!

Let’s be aware of our rights!

Let’s be sincere to perform our duties!

Let’s be a responsible citizen!

Let’s be a true Indian!

As we move towards the close of the programme, I request respected Principal/Director to guide us all through his/her visionary thoughts.

Address by Principal/Director

Thank you sir/ma’am

"Jahan dal dal pe sone ki chidiyan karti hain basera.

Woh Bharat desh hai mera, who Bharat desh hai mera."

I’m pretty sure you all wanna sing with me.

So, let’s give a musical tribute to the nation, our martyrs, nation builders and all the proud Indians through a medley of patriotic songs.

Medley - Patriotic Songs

With this vibrant and melodious performance we have come to the close of this celebration.

"India is the cradle of human race, the birth place of human civilisation, the mother of history, the grandmother of legends and the great grandmother of tradition." 

Let’s join in the celebration with all our emotions, reverence and pride.

On the occasion of 75th Republic day let us celebrate our rights, perform our duties sincerely and follow the constitution of free India with pride and honour.

We wish everyone a very Happy Republic Day. 

Jai Hind! Jai Bharat!

Christmas Celebration


Christmas Celebration/Assembly/Programme

On the seventh day after creating the world, God said, “Let there be light” ……….. and …………….. there was light – light of senses, light of knowledge and light of love.

Good Morning, I am ………………... It’s a matter of great joy and unique privilege to welcome you all among us and celebrate this Christmas with you. Christmas is the celebration of this spiritual light along with the birth of Jesus Christ. Christmas is when God came down the stairs of heaven with a baby in his arms, and that was Jesus. There is love at Christmas because Jesus is born to teach the lesson of love, and spread love among the humanity. Let us each one keep alive the spirit of love and glorify our birth. Let's begin the programme with a warm welcome to all the guests and invitees. For the purpose I invite ……………….  on the stage.

Welcome Speech

Festivals signify joy, love, compassion, fraternity, unity and togetherness. On this festive occasion meeting with our friends and well wishers enhances the joy of the festival. Celebrating Christmas with you all certainly multiplies our joy. Our hearts are beaming with joy to welcome you on the occasion of Christmas. We are blessed to have our special guest ................. with us on such a grand and festive occasion. We welcome sir and all our guests, friends, well wishers and invitees with a big round of applause.

Thanks __________ .

Christ has no hands but your hands to touch, bless and heal, no feet but your feet to lead men in path of truth, no arms but your arms to raise in prayer, no tongue but your tongues to pray for the suffering mankind, no heart but your love, to care and to feel others’ pain. So dear friends, let us be Christ’s hands, arms, heart and tongue to pray for ourselves and the mankind.

Let’s join our hands and close our eyes, and invoke God’ blessings in our celebrations. Kindly don’t repeat the prayer.


Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your Son to earth as a baby so many years ago.  Thank you that He paid the punishment for my sins by dying on the cross.  I thank you that He rose again to prove that death was truly defeated. I place my trust in You to be my Saviour. Guide me through the dark times of my life and give me courage to live for You.  We pray, to instil in us a profound sense of your abiding presence, and help us to take to heart the wonder of your love, that we may walk in your ways and delight in your will. Help us, Lord God, to be the faithful, gracious, loving, giving and forgiving people you would have us be. Amen.

Do you know the meaning of Christmas?

Yes of course.

Would you pl. tell me?

Christmas is a festival of joy, it is birth of Jesus. It is about Santa Claus and ................ Christmas tree and .............. lots of gifts.

No, my dear, Christmas is beyond all these things. God granted you the light of Christmas which is faith, the warmth of Christmas which is love, the radiance of Christmas which is purity, the righteousness of Christmas which is justice, the belief in Christmas which is truth, the all of Christmas which is Christ.

Do you really understand the meaning of these heavy words?

I know it’s really difficult but we have found a way to make you understand the real meaning and significance of Christmas through an act ……………….

Let’s enjoy the act.


I hope this skit has been successful in bringing out the true spirit of Christmas and message behind celebration of Christmas. Christmas is a miraculous story of God becoming human, then humbling himself to accept a cruel death which has been truly manifested in the play. Let’s applaud the actors with great cheers.

In the footsteps of my saviour

I would walk each day,

Following everywhere they lead me,

Close to Him to stay forever.

Wisdom is a lamp that dispels the darkness of ignorance. We feel privileged to have a man of vision and virtue among us as our special guest/chief guest. We look up to you for inspiration and encouragement. I request Sir ………………. to share his words of wisdom and encouragement with us.

Speech by Guest

Thank you sir

Celebrating Christmas without carols cannot be imagined. Our meritorious and melodious choir group is here with us to add melody in the air. Let’s hear their magical and musical performance. Please welcome them with a big round of applause.

Carol Singing

Let’s give a huge round of applause to all the singers for such a stunning performance. With this we have come to the close of such a glorious day of Christmas Celebration. Let this Christmas season be the renewing of Christ in our thinking, and cleansing of our lives by His pure presence. Let His joy come to our weary world through us. With this hope and prayer I call upon ……………….. to propose vote of thanks.

Wish you all a Happy Christmas and a very happy new year ahead.

Parents' / Grandparents' Day



Parents’ / Grandparents’ Day


Parents’ love is the only love that is perfectly selfless and purely unconditional. They are the most forgiving, self-sacrificing and trust worthy people we can ever get. They are just like our backbone; they will be with us no matter what circumstances we are in.

Therefore, the parents deserve to get some time to express their love for their children and enhance the mutual understanding. The children must, therefore, learn to appreciate the efforts of their parents in their lives.

Today, It is such a beautiful opportunity when the children and their parents would get to explore hidden talents, know each other more deeply and strengthen their bonds for ever. We always thank our dear parents for the time, effort and love they have bestowed our children with. What better way could we think other than bringing the children and parents on the same platform with a fun filled programme ‘PYAR KE RANG APNO KE SANG.


At the outset, let’s take the opportunity of remembering our spiritual father with the prayer.


Potentials and abilities that are given to us by none other than one of the strongest pillars and seeds of education and they are our dear Parents.

A pleasant morning and hearty welcome to our guests, dear parents/grandparents and everyone out there!

We are extremely elated and honoured to have our dear parents as the guests of the day on this lovely occasion. We all acknowledge your presence and wish to commence the programme with your blessings for this beautiful event. Welcome everyone!


Let’s Explore – Quiz

For every one of us, the most beloved and important people in our lives are our parents. Therefore, Parents retain a special place in our hearts. As actions speak louder than words, we would love to let you know that we are very thankful to each one of you, dear parents. So, we have thought to knit up a small quiz to help you know profoundly, explore deeply and strengthen the eternal bond between you and your children.

I guess the teams of parents and children are ready.

Wow! It was splendid and commendable. A big round of applause for the teams of our children with their beloved parents.


Now may I request our chief guest / a parent on the stage for his words of appreciation and encouragement.

Thank you Sir.

Activity - Dance/song

Kids play with laughter,

They dance with mirth

And bond with the parents,

Bond since their birth,

They look up with hope,

They enjoy with screams,

They learn with them

How to fulfil their dreams.

Our children are ready on their screens to do tiny little things teaming up with their parents. Now, let’s cheer our children for a lovely performance accompanied with their parents

Together We Win - Game

Children learn how to walk, talk, play and win while teaming up with their parents. No force of this world can defeat a child backed by and teamed with his parents. Today we have brought a game of balls in the basket, where the child has to throw as many balls as possible in the basket in a minute. I’m getting excited in anticipation. So let’s begin without any delay. Cheers for the teams.

That a momentous game show displaying joy, love, team spirit and fun unlimited. All applause for the players.

Vote of Thanks

Dear viewers, how touching and nostalgic moments we all have experienced. I’m sure we all would agree. Our hearty thanks to all the parents and children for joining us on this lovely event. We are grateful to you for your presence, active participation, cooperation and enthusiasm. I would also thank and appreciate our managing teams organisers and technical staff. Thanks each and everyone once again for being connected to us directly or indirectly. Bidding you goodbye, See you soon.
