Given below is an anchoring script for republic day celebration in school in English. 

Introduction Speech on Republic Day

Long Speech

A very warm good morning to one and all present here. I am Rahul, a student of Class 8. I am here to present a speech on the auspicious occasion of Republic Day. I am glad as I am chosen to present this speech and welcome everyone to this occasion. Today, India celebrates its 72nd Republic day. On this day, I on behalf of the school committee, welcome our honourable chief guest. I would like to extend a warm welcome and heartfelt greetings to our honourable principal, vice-principal, respected teachers, and my dear schoolmates. We all have gathered here today to celebrate Republic Day 2021 and commemorate India’s 72 years of democracy. 

I have got this wonderful opportunity to come on the stage and deliver the welcome occasion speech. I would like to talk about my beloved country on this occasion of Republic Day. We all must know India celebrates Republic Day on 26 January as the Constitution of India came into existence on this day in 1950. This not only made us a republic but also made the people of India the highest authority in the country. 

Our freedom fighters had struggled and sacrificed their lives so that the future of India is not under slavery. Freedom strugglers like Bhagat Singh, Mahatma Gandhi, Chandra Shekhar Azad, and many more must be remembered. We must pay tribute to them on today’s occasion.

India won Independence on August 15th, 1947. About 200 years of British rule came to an end on this day. Even after independence, India was facing Hindu-Muslim riots and corruption. It was the duty of each member of free India to return the country to its glory. After rigorous efforts, the constitution was finally implemented in a full-fledged manner on January 26, 1950. The credit for drafting the Indian constitution goes to B.R. Ambedkar. He was a member of the Constituent Drafting Committee who is considered the chief architect of the constitution of India. 26th January is celebrated as colourfully organized cultural events all over the country. Every citizen of India is filled with pride and happiness on the occasion. They play patriotic songs and enjoy sweet dishes to mark the celebrations.

India’s constitution is considered one of the best in the world. India is the largest democracy. However, India is still pulled back by crime, corruption, violence, terrorism, etc. After so many years of being a republic nation, India is still under the captivity of such nation-wide issues. As true citizens of the country, our responsibility is to work towards the development of the country and protect our land as true patriots!

Thank you for your patient hearing. 

Short Speech

Warm good morning and greetings to each one present here. I am Sandhya, a Grade 4 student. I feel blessed to be given the opportunity to welcome esteemed guests, our honourable principal, teachers, and my dear friends to the republic day celebration. India is celebrating its 72nd Republic Day today. I welcome each one to this auspicious occasion. Republic Day (26th January) marks the celebration of the implementation of the Indian Constitution on this date in 1950. Indian constitution is the longest written constitution in the whole world. India’s freedom struggle has been noteworthy where many freedom fighters had to sacrifice their lives so that India breathes the air of freedom. Indian constitution is also the result of the hard work of B.R. Ambedkar. He drafted the constitution which came to force on January 26, 1950. 

The main celebration of republic day is held at the Rajpath in New Delhi before the president of India. The parades are organized at the Rajpath which takes place as a tribute to India and its rich culture. On this day, many schools and colleges around the nation organize flag hoisting and functions in their premises.  

We are all gathered here to celebrate the achievement of the finest democracy in the world. This day reminds us of our freedom struggle and how we received ‘Purn Swaraj’ or complete independence. Today, we can enjoy many rights and privileges as a citizen of this country. Some of these rights are the right to equality, right to freedom, right against exploitation, right to freedom of religion. Cultural and educational rights, etc. However, the true attainment of a republic is a consequence of the long struggles of our freedom fighters. We must never forget them and celebrate this day every year with the same joy and pride. 

Thank you!
