Teachers greeted with flowers
VISAKHAPATNAM: They taught us the first letters of the alphabet. While some are remembered for their astute sternness, there were others who taught us the valuable lessons of life that helped us climb the ladder of success. It was a day to remember all the beloved teachers and express gratitude for their priceless service. Students came together to celebrate Teacher’s Day in various schools and colleges on Wednesday. There was a role reversal of some sorts as the students took up the task of playing the host throughout the day.
The mood was set a day in advance as students decorated classrooms with balloons, flowers and posters. Colourful rangolis were made in front of the classrooms to greet the teachers.
Dressed in traditional attires, they welcomed the teachers with flowers and garlands. Draped in colourful sarees, the senior students donned the roles of teachers and took classes for the junior sections.
As a mark of respect and gratitude, the students gave flowers, gifts and greeting cards to their beloved teachers and also organised cultural programmes.
It was a nostalgic moment for many former students who gathered at the schools to meet their teachers.
