Teachers’ Day Celebrations
September 5, the birthday of Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan is commemorated as Teachers’ Day each year. On this day the students of Senior Wing and Junior Wing ushered in their mentors and applied tilak on their foreheads. A special assembly was organized for their teachers which started with invocation of the deities’ blessings through a shloka and a prayer song. Ashneet, a student of XII, thanked the teachers for the generous contribution they had made in their students’ lives in the form of ethics, integrity and righteous work patterns. Another student, Palak, expressed her gratitude for her mentors with a poem donned in ornate words. The school choir then regaled the audience with a foot tapping song – ‘We love our teachers’. A Punjabi poem relating the antics of school children had everyone in splits followed by a rendition of the classic ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens. There was a vibrant Bhangra performance given by JW. The Principal Mrs. Balmit Kaur and all the teachers were invited onto the stage and presented with an aesthetic card diligently crafted by the students. In the end there was an array of fun filled games planned for the teachers. Later a gastronomical treat awaited the teachers in the recess. The teachers were touched by all these gestures of affection by the children and thanked them for making this day truly special and memorable for them.
