Emulate Radhakrishnan's values, teachers told

Teachers should emulate values and principles laid down by Dr S Radhakrishnan, the greatest teacher ever, to be an inspiration to their wards, said legislator N Sampangi.

Participating at a Teachers’ Day programme organised at the Ramakrishna Kalyana Mantap in the town on Wednesday, he called upon the teachers to be dedicated to their profession.

He felt that the government should extend more benefits to teachers, especially working in border areas.

He was of the opinion that basic infrastructure like classrooms, drinking water, retention walls and such should be prioritised in schools of Bagepalli and Gudibande taluks. The legislator asked the officials to look into these issues, at the earliest.

Addressing the gathering, Radhakrishnan’s grandson Subrahmanyam Sharma urged teachers to be guide in moulding students’ career. “There is no dearth of funds from the government to the education sector and officials must utilise the funds to improve the condition of schools and children,” Sharma added.

Retired teachers from the taluk Sampangi Ramaiah Shetty, Y C Thippa Reddy, K N Vijay, Venkata Shiva Reddy, E R Venkata Shiva Reddy, Mehboob Subhan, G L Indiramma, Parahat Unnisa, Lakshmamma, Yashodamma, Mohammed Ibrahim. B K Nanjundeshwara, ECO Narasimhaiah, Abdul Khaddus and P N Ramesh were felicitated for their contribution to the field of education.

In Shidlaghatta

The true celebration of the Teachers’ Day lies in evolving suggestions to enhance the education sector and addressing teachers’ problems, observed legislator V Muniyappa.
He was speaking at a Teachers’ Day programme organised at the Balaji Kalyana Mantap at Varadanayakanahalli Gate on the outskirts of the town on Wednesday. The onus is on teachers to educate society to build a literate nation.

Quality teachers

“Recruitment of quality teachers by the government, these days, will help in moulding the students better. In future, all the government schools will have quality teachers,” he added.

On the occasion, retired teachers S R Faijun, Kashipathaiah, Khurshida Begum, Vishwanath Rao, Thimmakka, G Munvenkatarayappa, C Hanumantharayappa, Attarunnisa, Tirumalappa, M Chikka Muniyappa, Bibi Jaan, S D Venkatarayappa, A N Anjanachari, Jainabi, S V Munikadirappa and Anand were felicitated for their service.
