Teachers compete for students' prizes

Students of Kannamangala School in Shidlaghatta taluk conducting competitions for their teachers. dh photoThe students themselves inaugurated the programme by placing a garland on the poster of Dr S Radhakrishnan.

They then expressed their feelings towards their teachers in words, through songs, descriptions and other ways.

Unique experience

The part of the Teachers’ Day programme that stood out was the competitions that the students organised for their teachers.

The winners too were selected by the students themselves.

Throwing the ball into a bucket, extempore speaking, rapid eating were some of the competitions conducted.

The teachers, on their part, kept up with the spirit of the event and participated whole-heartedly.

Rasika, a seventh standard student said the programme was conducted without prior information to the teachers.

Unexpectedly organised

“Our teachers themselves inspired us to organise such a programme- they always told us to use our own ideas for anything,” she explained.

Assistant teacher M Devaraj expressed happiness about the event. “We were surprised when the students told during lunch hour that they would be celebrating Teachers’ Day today.” He appreciated the efforts put in by the students, “Their organising capacity would prove to be a lesson even for adults.” Devaraj added that the teachers too enjoyed the competitions. “It was an experience reminding us of our own childhood, after all!”

The programme was presided over by fifth standard student Swathi. Anil, Deepika, Manoj, Rakshitha, Rasika and other students took up the responsibilities of narration, welcoming and offering the vote of thanks.
