The Pandemic may have restricted us from meeting each other but it has not been able to take away the sentiments that our students feel for their teachers. On the occasion of Teachers’ Day, students from Class 11 organized a virtual celebration for all their teachers.
As is the tradition in our school, the celebrations began with a minute’s silence to invite the Divine into the celebrations. Mrs. Anjali Jaipuria, the Vice-Chairperson of the school, addressed the teachers with heart-felt gratitude and saluted them for their unwavering devotion to their students. She spoke of how the teachers balance their professional and personal lives with great equanimity and how they truly are Corona warriors.
Soon, the online celebrations began with a number of different acts from the students; these included a parody of teachers conducting online classes, a melody of beautiful songs, a dance performance, a video by Class 12 students and heart-warming video messages of students from different grades.
A great surprise for the teachers were the songs sung by Pre-primary teachers and music teachers in different languages such as Bengali, Punjabi, Sindhi, Hindi etc. There was also a performance by the dance department of the school.
The Principal, Mrs. Promini Chopra’s note spoke about how all the teachers were an integral part of her life; how they were her friends and companions and how they all had a very special place in her heart. Her note left many teachers and students alike teary-eyed, and yet, with a smile lurking on the lips.
We are so proud of our students who took the time out of their studies to pay this truly wonderful tribute to their beloved teachers. God bless them all!
