The ASIS Group Celebrate Teacher’s Day 2015 ICSE/ISC

Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was born on Sept. 5, 1888, and died April 16, 1975, in Chennai. He was a scholar and statesman who was president of India from 1962 to 1967.

Radhakrishnan was awarded several high awards during his life, including a knighthood in 1931, the Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award in India, in 1954, and honorary membership of the British Royal Order of Merit in 1963.

Radhakrishnan believed that “teachers should be the best minds in the country”. Since 1962, his birthday is celebrated in India as Teachers’ Day on 5 September.

Teachers are a significant part of everyone’s life. They show us the right path and groom us to become a better citizen and a better person. They teach us to face the most difficult challenges of life and get through them, easily. The day is dedicated to teachers, who play a prominent role in the life of their students.

All across the campus, Teacher’s Day celebrations were undertaken to honor teachers for their sincere efforts to impart knowledge to their students. By having celebrations on Teacher’s Day, we convey the message that we care for our teachers, just as they do. Celebrating the festival is the recognition of the devotion, with which, teachers undertake the responsibility of educating a child academically as well as morally.

Apart from being the day when we give recognition to our teacher’s hard work, the festival brings out a healthy interaction between students and teachers, wherein the students recognize the teaching capability of the teachers. Celebrations that included songs and dances like these reflect the fact that we care for our teachers.

Teachers Day celebrations have been special for the students who value their teachers and are thankful for their invaluable support and assistance, in making their life worthwhile. Teachers have been the light bearers to the students for ages.
