Independence Day is one of those occasions which calls for a welcome speech because we as Indians celebrate this day as a festival. After 200 Years of slavery under the British Empire, it was August 15, 1947, that India became an independent nation. After many years of struggles, where our freedom fighters were hanged, imprisoned, and tortured we could see the light of the day.
On this day, schools across the nation honour their legacy and sacrifices by conducting the program. This can be presented as a long welcome Speech for Independence Day or a short welcome speech for Independence Day.
The form of Independence Day Speech is helpful for students in grades 8-12, where they can present in detail by using simple words.
Good morning everyone, honourable Principal, respected teachers and my dear friends. It is an absolute honour for me to stand here today and welcome you all to the celebration of our Independence. India attained independence on this day in the year of 1947 after several years of struggle. We paid a heavy price to gain this independence. Our freedom fighters who were striving for freedom and organizing marches and movements were imprisoned, tortured, and were privy to so many injustices. Yet they never gave up. The jawans and soldiers accompanied such leaders and also lost their lives.
The great freedom fighters include Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Mahatma Gandhi, Bhagat Singh, Mangal Pandey, Chandrashekhar Azad, Sukhdev and many more who struggled for decades. It is because of their zeal and dedication the passion for nationalism didn’t subside.
They protected the “Sone Ki Chidiya” which refers to Golden Bird which our nation was referred to as due to the abundance of treasure and heritage. It is because of such fighters and jawans we are breathing in an independent nation.
We should carry this spirit forward and celebrate the nationalism and patriotism that runs through us and honour our forefathers. And, not just today, we must abide by their values of responsibility and courage every day.
The fight still goes on, along the borders where many are fighting putting their lives on the line for us civilians. We should never take this for granted. It should be our innate responsibility to pay respect by following their footsteps. We must be kind and compassionate to every individual. Being respectful to our elders and teachers. We must strive to be honest and do good by the country. Follow the rules of school, games, traffic, and never bring shame to our country.
We must always stand up for what is right without causing anybody any harm. This principle was appreciated because through non-violence we can achieve great things. And our Father of the nation has exemplified this.
So, today we have gathered here to celebrate their courage and brave actions that have led us to this day. This feeling of patriotism for our country binds us as citizens and we must cherish this unseen thread of love.
Today there are many performances that our students have enthusiastically volunteered for, parades, drills, singing performances and dance performances to celebrate this glorious day. So, we will begin this day with Flag Hoisting and before that let’s give a big round of applause and welcome our respected Principal on stage to share with us a few words of wisdom.
Happy Independence Day to everyone celebrating. Thank you.

Good morning everyone respected the Principal, teachers and my dear friends and welcome to the grand celebration of Independence. Today we complete 73 years of independence. And what a long road it has been to reach where we are and breathe in an independent nation. This journey of freedom from the 200 years of slavery and injustices from the British would not have been possible without our freedom fighters and the brave jawans who fearlessly fought.
Many freedom fighters like Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Mahatma Gandhi, Bhagat Singh, Mangal Pandey, and Chandrashekhar Azad, have been martyred their lives so that our nation is free from such an unequal social system. They have rebelled against such heart-wrenching crimes like racial discrimination and endless slavery.
And till today many brave fighters and soldiers are still protecting us from other nations by putting their lives on the line so that we could be with our families and be home safe at the end of the day. It is our duty now to carry this spirit forward that is the sense of equality, respect for everyone, kindness, compassion, honesty and love.
Our nation’s history is a remarkable one and now as we look ahead, we must acknowledge the lives that we lost but cherish and celebrate their fights and celebrate this day with pride.
And without any further adieu let’s start the celebration and first welcome our Principal on stage to speak a few words.
Happy Independence Day everyone. Jai Hind!
This form of Welcome Speech For Independence Day is helpful for students in grades 1-3 as they can gain knowledge about such a topic in a simple form.
India was under British rule for 200 years.
For two centuries India was a victim of social injustices, slavery, racial discrimination, torture, oppression, draining our wealth etc.
They ruled for so long as they practised the “divide and rule” policy.
It was our freedom fighters who started unifying our citizens and gathered people to start movements and marches to rebel against this system.
For unity as well our fighters paid an unfortunate price as they lost livelihood and lives.
Many were hanged, imprisoned and tortured for rebelling against the British rule.
After many years of struggle, we attained independence on August 15, 1947.
Today we are a free country and celebrating 73 years of freedom and independence.
As we go ahead, we must remember that it was not an easy road and acknowledge the sacrifices made by our forefathers and this celebration is in their name.
A free nation should follow the principles that led us to this day, like unity, non-violence and the values to do better for our country. Happy Independence Day to all!
