A Special Assembly was held on the 14th of July celebrating Bastille Day, which is also know as the National Day of France. The French National Day is the anniversary of Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, a turning point of the French Revolution, as well as the Fête de la Fédération which celebrated the unity of the French people on 14 July 1790. Celebrations are held throughout France. The oldest and largest regular military parade in Europe is held on the morning of 14 July, on the Champs-Élysées in Paris in front of the President of the Republic, along with other French officials and foreign guests.

It is a very significant day for La Martiniere College as our Founder, Major General Claude Martin was from France so remembering him and and his country the staff and the students of La Martiniere College, Lucknow celebrate Bastille Day.

In India, Bastille Day is celebrated with great festivity in Pondicherry, a former French colony, every year. On the eve of the Bastille Day, retired soldiers parade and celebrate the day with Indian and French National Anthems. During the day, uniformed war soldiers march through the street to honor the French soldiers who were killed in the battles. One can see the French flag and the Indian flag flying alongside.
