Teachers’ Day – 5 September 2022

"Teaching is a very noble profession that shapes the character, calibre, and future of an individual. If people remember me as a good teacher that will be the biggest honour for me.”
- A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

A nation will prosper well to the degree to which it honours its teachers.
- Plato

There could not be greater excitement than in the hearts and minds of students who geared up their preparations to celebrate their teachers especially after a lacuna of two years of online classes. Not even a cloudburst could dampen the joyous spirit of gratitude that filled the air at National Public School, Indiranagar on 5 September, 2022.

With weeks of anticipation and preparation, the students of Grades 11and 12 simply accelerated their desire to showcase their myriad talents and say thank you to their beloved teachers.

The day began with a wonderful array of competitions and programmes such a quiz, a game of Taboo, wonderful clips of sweet messages from students expressing their love for their teachers and so on. The teachers enjoyed dumb charades much to the delight of their students who, with their excited shouts of motivation and applause, brought great positivity and energy to the day.

In the afternoon, the teachers were treated to another round of superlative display of a dance off, a fashion show and a skit put together so seamlessly into a fun-filled script highlighted with an effusive rap song. It was followed by a memory-provoking quiz for teachers and students to reminisce about the history of National Public School, Indiranagar and the many teachers that make it worthy of its name.

Ms Shweta Chand, the Principal, thanked all the students on behalf of the teachers for the wonderful day. She took the time to speak to them about the great teacher, Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, in whose memory the day is celebrated as Teachers’ Day. She reminded the students that respecting teachers should be a continuous action and that the core values of discipline and integrity which have enabled the school to become a stalwart educational institution, should never be forgotten.

At the end of a celebratory day, the teachers felt appreciated for their dedicated service to the students and were delighted with a true sense of being recognised and appreciated while completely motivated and enthused with renewed energy to pursue their profession of passion.
