Rotary Public School in Gurgaon celebrates World Heritage Day
World Heritage Day is celebrated in schools every year to raise awareness among students about the diversity of cultural heritage across the world and to sensitize them to protect the historical monuments, the shared wealth of humankind. On this occasion, in Rotary Public School, Gurgaon, a special Assembly was organized for the students in the form of presentation of a skit and poem recital to bring about the awareness in the youth of today to value and consider the importance of cultural heritage in their lives.

Students of Class VI of R.P.S. were taken on a visit to Farrukhnagar, 21 km from Gurgaon where they went to explore the one of India’s Heritage Site – Sheesh Mahal which was built by the Mughal ruler Farrukh Shah in 1711 A.D. This ancient monument is a tasteful elegance and grandeur that is characteristics of Mughal Art and Architecture. The students were enriched by the beautiful architecture of the Sheesh Mahal and were informed about the various ancient monuments of the Mughal Era.

Monuments and sites are tangible carriers of the memory of a part of the human experience. Through their authenticity and integrity, they contribute in their own way, to the commemoration and transmission of values which include history. We need to reflect on how our heritage – built and natural – can be presented to future generations in a better condition than we inherited it in but also use this heritage in a sustainable manner for socio-economic development of the communities that inhabit their setting. 

With this aim in their minds and a promise to protect and preserve our heritage, the students of Rotary Public School celebrated the day to spread the message to all.
