Bangalore: There was unbridled enthusiasm among students in The Hindu NIE schools on the special day meant for teachers. While they paid rich tributes to former President Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan whose birthday is celebrated as Teachers’ Day, they also recalled how their own mentors had inspired them to become better individuals. Student councils worked hard to make the day special.
They organised games and presented variety entertainment programmes to make their mentors happy. And, in turn, the zeal and enthusiasm exhibited by teachers matched that of their students, and they thanked their “shishyas” for making the day unforgettable.
At Ryan International School, Kundalahalli, it was a refreshing morning.
The day began with a special assembly by the students. Various performances by the students followed.
The foot-tapping numbers, melodious songs and instrumental items displayed their talent and reflected their love for their teachers.
After witnessing the scintillating performances, the teachers appreciated the students with a loud round of applause.
The children motivated the teachers to participate in various games. The teachers enthusiastically participated in the events.
The cheering brought the roof down.
The teachers thanked the students, especially the members of the Ryan Student Council, who had worked hard towards making the programme a memorable one.
Making a difference
The students of The East-West School, Basavanagudi, wanted to make a difference on the day and they surprised their gurus with their innovative displays.
The entire programme was organised by the students’ association of the school.
They invited Rajeev Gowda, a faculty member of the Indian Institute of Management, as the guest of honour.
The celebrations began with a Bharatanatya recital by a tenth standard student. Students presented a dance drama, “Teachers down the ages”, tracing the history of teachers right from the Vedic age to the present one.
