I would like to first thank my class teacher for giving me a wonderful opportunity. The theme of today’s special assembly is ” National Voters Day “. I involved myself in the puppetry show. The puppetry show is all about the importance of voting. This assembly was just very fun and informative. What I like even more is the quiz. I learned that national voter’s day is celebrated in order to encourage more young voters to take part in the political process. I also learned that voting is a basic process that helps to form a country’s government and also One can choose their representatives through voting. I also learned that voting rights enable people the right to question the government about issues and clarifications. I learned many more …..
An ideal quote said by Abraham Lincoln ( 16 th president of USA) “The ballot is stronger than the bullet” was also said by one of the students in the special assembly. Overall I enjoyed the assembly very well. A big thanks to all the teachers of grade 7 who supported all of us and made this assembly informative and fun as well. I would like to conclude by saying that ” The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all ” so don’t forget to cast your vote in the upcoming elections. THANK YOU !!!
