Patriotic moment at The Grange P-12 College, Callistemon campus

Melbourne: The 69th Indian Independence Day celebration in Melbourne was a moment of pride for many. At the Grange P-12 College, Callistemon campus, the Indian tri color was hoisted at an event conducted on a grand scale with the support of Western Gujju Incorporation.
Congregating in the spacious and inviting school campus hall, the Western Gujjus delivered a day showcasing India’s dynamic and vibrant culture, open to all. Riveting speeches by the guests of honor, Maj Gen Ranjit Nadkarni and Col Sameer Roy Chaudhry along with President of Western Gujjus Chirag Jani, solemnly acknowledged the importance of Indian independence, and freedom.
The speeches all imparted the significance of the day, and in particular the context in which it was being celebrated: Australia, a nation of acceptance, multiculturalism, and a land of truly unbound opportunity. All the guests’ profusely thanked, and commended The Grange P-12 College, especially its principal David Smillie. The school has been incredibly supportive of the thriving Indian community of the Western suburbs, pioneering a Hindi Language course – the only secondary school to do so in the region.
The guests noted that The Grange serves as a symbol of the Australian egalitarian spirit. School students under the guidance of Ms. Anjana Dwivedi brought the point home, by performing varied, and enthralling pieces, displaying the cultural diversity, and artistic capacity The Grange P-12 offers.
