1000 students from the school stand up for the National Anthem to boost the morale of Indian Olympic athletes
Hyderabad, July 26th, 2012 - India’s Olympic dreams are just a few days away and all Indians naturally want the Indian contingent to get the maximum medals! Indian athletes participating at the London 2012 Olympics received best wishes from more than 1000 students from Nasr Girls School in the city. All the students came together as part of Acer India’s Stand by your Nation campaign, a nationwide campaign that is aimed at building support for Indian athletes participating at the London 2012 Olympics.
The students of Nasr Girls School celebrated the event with utmost zeal and participated in various activities to motivate the athletes. The day started with the assembly and was followed by the flag hoisting ceremony that infused pride amongst one and all. The enthusiastic young students of primary and higher secondary stood in perfect attention with their head held high and felt the pride in being Indians as they sang the National Anthem in unison to raise the spirits of the Olympic athletes. The young minds also participated with utmost gusto as
they were quizzed on the Olympic Games and its history, “Stand up for the Olympics by just standing up for the National Anthem" that will urge consumers to encourage athletes by creating a simple video where they are standing up and singing the National Anthem. For every video uploaded by consumers on Acer’s YouTube channel, Acer will make a significant contribution towards the welfare of Indian Olympic contingent.
Mr. S Rajendran, Chief Marketing Officer, Acer India said, 'We are of the firm belief that we need to encourage our Olympic contingent with the one thing that binds all Indians together, our National Anthem. We are extremely proud and grateful to have the support of the enterprising young students of Nasr Girls School in cheering the Indian Olympic athletes whole-heartedly.
