The teacher’s day celebrations began in Staford on the 4th September, itself when the youngest Stafordians were initiated into the significance of the day through a power point presentation on Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. Nursery, Kindergarten and Class I students learnt about the learned scholar, educationist and the second President of India whose love for the teaching profession is evident from the noble gesture due to which 5th September came to be celebrated as Teacher’s Day all over India. Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, preferred celebrating the day as a day of felicitating teachers rather than the date being commemorated as his birthday. The tiny tots of Staford then celebrated teacher’s day and paid tribute to the great scholar.
On 5th September, children from classes II to VI celebrated the day with great enthusiasm. The children surprised the teachers with a multi-hued, entertaining programme which was conceptualized, organized, anchored and presented entirely by the students. The children amused their teachers with jokes, riddles and tongue twisters for the teachers, and entertained them with specially composed songs and excellently choreographed dances. Solo and group performances had the teachers applauding the students’ brilliant efforts. The entire package included some fun and games, and also opportunities for teachers to bless the children and address them on the occasion. The heart-warming efforts of the children, their enthusiasm and zeal left the teachers feeling elated, and much loved.
The principal, headmistress and teachers of Staford are proud of the Stafordians and wish them all success. This day was a day of reaffirming the commitment that the teachers have made to themselves to help every child attain his/her true potential.
