Indian Postal Celebration is an extension of World Postal Day, which is celebrated on October 9, every year.
The Postal Day celebrations in Gayathri Central School began with a Seminar session on Philately, conducted by the department heads from the Head Post Office, Kayamkulam. A skit was enacted during the school assembly by the students of Grade V-X, which accentuated the importance of Indian Postal Services.
Students from Grade III-X were given an opportunity to draft and send letters, which helped them to revive and remember the old medium of interpersonal communication. Students were also assigned to send letters to their friends and family members.
The event was aimed at re-introducing the future generation to the living heritage of the Indian Postal System and was indeed proved to be a great step to revive the fallen glory of the art of writing their minds and sharing their emotions through the post.

Hindi Diwas 2019
Hindi Diwas is celebrated all through the India to show the importance of Hindi language in the country. After being an independent country, the Government of India made a goal to standardize the mother tongue (i.e.) the Hindi language with Grammar and Orthography. Devanagari script is used to bring uniformity in writing. It is celebrated as an event every year on 14th September as Hindi language (writing in Devanagari Script) was first adopted by the Constituent Assembly of India as the official language of Republic of India on 14th September.
There is an enormous need to celebrate Hindi Diwas as an event every year in order to pay honour and pass its significance to the next generation. Hindi Diwas should be celebrated not only because it is our national language, but it is also our mother tongue, which we must respect and commemorate time to time. We should be proud of our national language and never feel hesitated while speaking Hindi in other countries. It is an event which gives opportunity to Indian people to promote Hindi language. It motivates and brings positive perceptions about Hindi among others.
So Gayathri Central School took the initiative to conduct the program on the importance of this day. The program was conducted by the students of III-X in an effective manner.
