Teacher's Day


Knowledge is that flame which ignites the minds of the young and old. It is that light which eradicates the darkness called ignorance. Today is that special day where the rays of wisdom lit up the globe making it stand out in pride. 5th September is the birthday of the late Dr. Radhakrishnan which is celebrated as Teachers day. We fondly remember him as the great educationist and his love for teaching.

Teachers are those souls who act as a guiding force throughout our journey of life. School is a home away from home where one is taught to be disciplined, honest and humble human beings. Right from teaching our basics in education, life’s lessons are also learnt in due course of time. They help us to differentiate between the right and wrong, influencing our lives to a large extent. They provide an anchor which helps in shaping our personalities in the right direction. They are those noble individuals who enable and encourage students to develop their talents, confidence levels and live a better life. A good teacher is someone who teaches not only with the mind, but also with the heart.

Today is the day, where students express their heartfelt gratitude to their mentors. They realize and cherish the value of what is taught to them. Students must recognize and respect such teachings as those that would abide them lifelong. We would therefore like to take this opportunity and make this day very special to all our teachers. A hearty thanks to all of you for having making a difference to our lives in a remarkable manner. We would like to conclude this speech with a quote which says that “Teaching is the profession which teaches all other professions.”
