“Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!” The National Day in Malaysia is celebrated on the 31st of August to commemorate and celebrate the freedom and independence gained. During this whole month of August, we can hear the shouts of independence echo from every nook and corner of the country. We will also see most Malaysians express their patriotism and love to the country by raising the Malaysia flag on their vehicles, balcony of their homes, and even along the streets.
It is also during this time; students at Kinderland Kindergartens and childcare centres proudly fly the “Jalur Gemilang” flags, sing the National anthem, “Jalur Gemilang” and enjoy the celebration with their friends and teachers. Malaysia’s Independence Day is celebrated with pride and joy where competitions and parades, cultural dances and performances are organised in the centres.
In short, Independence Day serves as a reminder to all our students to appreciate the tough fight our ancestors had fought and to educate them about the spirit of Independence. By celebrating this event we commemorate those all great people who had sacrificed their lives and loved ones in making Malaysia an Independent country.
