TEACHERS’ APPRECIATION WEEK
Delhi Public School Patna celebrated Teachers Appreciation Week from September 1, 2017 to September 5, 2017. The preparation for the day started a week before. Students Council members of senior classes and monitors of classes IV & V gave the school and teachers’ staff room a makeover by making soft board on the topic ‘A world without teachers is a world that doesn’t exist’. Children sang songs in honour of teachers during the break period in the corridors and Plaza. Students’ Council members and monitors made book mark and cards which were distributed to all teachers detailing the day’s events, venues and timings.
The eventful day started with the warm welcome of teachers at the beautifully decorated entrance with a souvenir, tilak and sprinkling of flower petals amidst the melody of “Dhol” beats. Before the teachers reported to their class/sec, the green boards were decorated with messages, quotations and poems written in teachers appreciation.
Next, it was time for the special assembly prepared by the members of student council and monitors. Students and teachers were seated in the amphitheatre to witness the assembly. It started with the shloka and prayer song along with dance performance. Then students came up with speech which was tailed by group song presentation and poetry recitation. Next in the row was an fusion dance presentation with different flavours and a play. Children also imitated the teaching style of Teachers dealing with different age group in poetic form by doing actions.
School Head Boy and Head Girl and Monitors IV-V presented the teachers day card to Principal Sir and Headmistress Madam on behalf of all students for all the faculty members. After accepting the card Principal Sir addressed the gathering with his inspirational words with the moral story of Guru Nanak, how to value our own life and importance of Teachers in every child’s life. Headmistress ma’am shared that Teachers are transformer in child’s life. After the assembly students had their cooking without fire activity in their classes. The classes were decorated and tables were laid down with the delicious items, which was shared by students and teachers.
