Teachers’ Day in India is celebrated on 5th September to commemorate the birth anniversary of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. He was a renowned scholar, a visionary teacher, one of the first recipients of the Bharat Ratna, and the first vice president and second president of independent India.
He was the best teacher, philosopher and mentor India ever had. An inspiration not only for students but also for educators, Dr. Radhakrishnan firmly believed that good teachers can guide students to highest success in every sphere.
On this day, we come together to recognize the contribution of teachers in our lives. This is the day we acknowledge the challenges, hardships, and sacrifices made by educators to open our minds and hearts to new possibilities and to help us contribute meaningfully to our immediate community and the world at large.
Teachers and students share a special bond, where they can even complement one another. On this day, we also observe and enjoy the relationship we have with mentors.
This year, at our school, we celebrated teachers’ day online because of the devastating spread of the corona pandemic. However, our little toddlers made this day special with their unbeatable performances. They made beautiful cards and lovely videos and wrote special wishes for their teachers with the help of their parents.
At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents. This celebration was successful with the joint efforts of our children and parents who participated enthusiastically and with all heart. No wonder, the event was magical and left everyone spellbound!!
