The Children’s Day celebrations were  unique for the students of 23 special schools in the district as they got a chance to sing and dance with films stars and people of the tribal community from Attappady on Thursday.

 ‘Uniquely Me’, organised by Centre for Empowerment and Enrichment in association with Kochi City Police and Sociology Department of Sacred Heart College, also offered a different experience for political leaders, film stars and policemen.

As many as 885 students took part in the programme organised at SH College from 10.30 am to 2.30 pm.

After inaugurating the function, Minister K Babu said that children were the hope of the future of the nation.

He also lauded the skills of the differently abled students and the activities of people engaged with them.    “The skills of the children are extraordinary, even better than the abled.

Society should not sideline them but encourage them to lead a life like the rest. The government will offer full support for the welfare of these students,” he said.

Film actor Harishree Ashokan shared his experience and spoke to the children.

Attappady Adivasi Sangam presented tribal songs and dances. Actor Kalabhavan Mani  cheered up the students with his mimicry and songs and they also danced with him. Actor Ananya, Bala, Amritha and mimicry artist Sajan Palluruthy also spent time with children.

The students organised cultural programmes. Arjun, a student of Shnehalayam gave the Children’s Day message dressed like Jawaharlal Nehru.

The logo for the function was designed by Rahul, another student of Snehalayam.

Fr Prasant Palakkappillil, Principal,  Sacred Heart College, and Deputy Commissioner of Police V M Muhammad Rafique were also present.
