Music ignites all areas of child development: intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. Patriotic songs are songs that demonstrate love for one’s country or have themes that glorify self-sacrifice, land’s beauty, history or ideals.
Music is beneficial for children as it not only develops their aesthetic sense but is also the key to creativity. It is one of the most beloved human experiences and plays an important role in the education of a child by providing it an opportunity of self-expression. A ‘Patriotic Song Competition’ was organized at SKPVMS to expose our children to music, while also enhancing their language and presentation skills.
The room was filled with children brimming with enthusiasm and eagerness to showcase their talent. The students from Grade I to IX participated in the competition.
The students prepared well for the competition and a wide range of songs were presented. While the choice of songs ranged from the patriotic to the popular, it was interesting that each child had worked hard to comprehend the lyrics and sing the songs with conviction. Their songs invoked a strong sense of patriotism in each one who listened. The room was resplendent with a feeling of belonging and pride. We discovered potential talent in singing from amongst our students and are very optimistic that these students will bring glory to the school in the future.
