Teachers' Day 2016

“The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows” Sydney J. Harris.

Teachers' Day at St. Joseph’s Indian Primary School was celebrated with a lot of zeal and enthusiasm. The day started by giving a tribute to Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan who was born on 5th September, 1888. It was his wish that instead of celebrating his birthday on 5th of September every year, it would be better to celebrate it as Teachers’ Day all over India. The day had an emotional and a recreational touch. They began the day invoking God’s blessing upon the teachers and the purpose of celebrating the eventful day giving a brief description as to why teacher’s day is celebrated. They moved on to a short entertainment programme and a match was played between the Teacher’s and the Students which was the highlight of the day. The students did all the arrangements with a lot of energy and excitement.

Our Principal ended the day wishing the teachers' individually "A Very Happy Teachers' Day" and presenting them with a memento as a token of appreciation.
