Gurugram: Students of Ridge Valley School organized a two day Voter’s awareness campaign. In order to spread word about the importance of voting and the right to vote, various activities including Nukkad Natak, placard marches, and sloganeering were held.
Students marched towards Galleria market, Gurugram with the placards carrying motivational messages written on them. Later in the day, Nukkad Natak was presented wherein students urged people to duly exercise their right to vote. Each vote makes lot of difference and kids beautifully tried to make people realize this through the street play.
The next day, students presented Nukkad Natak at Arjun Marg Shopping Mall, DLF Phase 1 encouraging more and more people to let their vote be counted.
“The Voter Awareness Campaign is completely driven by our students. Although, they are not eligible to vote but they can be great influencers. Children are so much aware these days and they look forward to a meaningful society. They can certainly influence adults in their surroundings to go out and cast their vote. In our country, it is ironic to know that people who miss out on their voting exercise are educated ones. This is the reason that we took up this drive so that students can go in front of such audience, interact with them and encourage them to not miss on such important responsibility” said Aarchana M Sagar, Principal, Ridge Valley School
