Carmelites honour teachers

On the occasion of Teachers’ Day, the students of Mount Carmel Degree College, paid tribute to their teachers in a lively and heartfelt manner. MCC’s Student Government organised a fun filled half-a-day of programmes for their beloved lecturers, to show them just how their efforts are valued by their students.  

Each department was given special invitations two days prior to Teachers’ Day, in which they were also informed about the dress code for the day — ‘18 Again’. This was enthusiastically followed by most of the staff of 200 teachers, who arrived bedecked in floral shirts, pants, skirts and colourful churidars.

The Teachers’ Day programme was divided into formal and informal events. It began with the Principal, Sr Albina, delivering a prayer for the well being of the teachers and their loved ones.

This was followed by the felicitation of each department by a student representative of that department.

During this item, the sincerity and creativity of the girls shone through, with some of them honouring their teachers through self-composed poems or limericks. The Principal and the Vice-Principal, Sr Juanita, were also honoured in a special manner.

Then came the cultural programme. The teachers were treated to performances by the Indian and Western music teams, Indian and Western (and Hip-Hop) dance teams, the fashion team and the winners of the Indian dance event from MCC’s ‘Cul-Week’.

Hita and Meghna, winners of the Radio One College Champions, had the teachers in splits after their riotous antics on stage. Games were also conducted for the
teachers such as the ‘Lucky Chair Competition’ and prizes were given away amidst peals of laughter. The programme ended with tea and snacks, provided by the college canteen.
