Teacher’s Day is celebrated as a tribute to the valuable contribution made by teachers to the society by imparting knowledge and enlightening and shaping the career of students. Celebration of Teacher’s Day is fairly popular in many countries across the world and is even acknowledged by UNESCO. For students, Teacher’s Day is an occasion to pay reverence and gratitude to teachers for their selfless effort and enriching the education system in the process.
The date for celebrating this special event varies from country to country across the world. In India, Teacher’s Day is celebrated on the 5th of September every year since 1962 as it is the birth anniversary of Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, a prominent thinker, philosopher and an educator. As QMIS tries to ascertain the concealed talent of the students , they were given liberty to perform on their own. The Celebration kicked up with the assembly conducted by the teachers, there the elation started. Our Chairman Dr. Chandran addressed the teachers on this special eve stating that the teachers are the trend setters of the society. He called all teaching staff to balance both their professional and personal life. And make an eternal influence in the life of the children. Joint Director It was overwhelming to see little ones dressed in saris & managing classes like their teachers. The student teachers did an enormous job & administered the entire campus for more than an hour without the teachers. The students ruled the floor through various performances like dance, song & skit. The afternoon session was exhilarating because of the presence of Mr. Andrews ( ex. Radio jockey). He brought out the other side of the teachers & made us laugh………………………………………………… until the program got over.
The arousing part of the day was Ms. Shanthibala, Director of Lakshmi Teacher Training centre, who was also a teacher of so many QMIS teachers was invited astoundingly and asked to share her views on teachers’ day. The curtain of the program was brought down by sharing a large cake with the entire QMIS family.
