“It is the supreme art of a teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.”- Albert Einstein
Good teachers are the reason why ordinary students dream to do extraordinary things! The light of the world, the beacon in the dark, and the hope that gives us strength to survive is our teacher.
In India, Teachers’ day has been celebrated on September 5 every year since 1962, as it is the birth anniversary of the second President of India, Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. This day, the students express their gratitude and love towards the extraordinary contribution and efforts of their teachers.
This year also, we celebrated Teachers’ Day at Ekya Byrathi. Owing to the ongoing pandemic, the celebrations had to be done online. However, the event was very exciting.
The celebration started with grade 9 and 8 students informing us about the significance of Teachers’ Day. It was followed by a student reciting the shloka ‘Guru Brahma’, and the meanings of the words. Many students played videos and scratch projects for the teachers. A few also made special cards. Grade 1 and Montessori Seniors sang a song for their class teachers.
Grade 8 and 9 did something very special. They had organized a video with all our teachers’ pictures, made a quiz on tongue twisters and guess-the-movie-with-the-emoji.
At the end of the session, songs were played and all the teachers and students danced. It was an extremely exciting event, something we look forward to from the beginning of the year.
Here are a few pictures of our day with our teachers and the activities we did to prove our admiration for their tireless effort
