The Nagasaki Day and Quit India Movement Day are observed on the same day- the 9th of August every year at DRS International School. The morning assembly on this historic day saw students reflect on the significance of both these days. Our students gave a presentation on the sequence of the events that unfolded on both these days, and the roles individuals played in them. The informative assembly presentation was followed by an interactive quiz to add a fun dimension to the assembly.
The ‘Fat Man’ was the code-name of the atomic bomb that destroyed more than 60,000 people in Nagasaki, Japan. The speakers informed the assembly that the inventor of the atomic bomb, Albert Einstein, was remorseful of his invention which was used for such a destructive purpose. This also helped students to understand the importance of this day and the ethical implications of having and producing knowledge that could fall into the wrong hands!
