Teachers’ day is a day that is celebrated to appreciate and honor teachers for their contribution to society as well as imparting knowledge, guiding and shaping the minds and careers of students.Teachers play a major role in influencing and moulding a child’s life as children in their formative and impressionable years spend a lot of time at school. Whatever a child learns at this time stays with him all his life.This day is also celebrated as Teachers’ Appreciation day The celebration of this day took roots in the 20th Century. In India, teachers’ day is celebrated on the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the second President of India who was a thinker, philosopher, academician, diplomat, scholar but above all a teacher.In 1962, when Dr. Radhakrishnan became the President, he was approached by some of his students and friends who wished to celebrate his birthday.
He told them, “Instead of celebrating my birthday, it would be my proud privilege if 5 September is observed as Teachers’ Day.”
From that day, his birthday is being celebrated as Teachers’ day.At MRIS Noida, the celebrations started off with the Teachers’ day speech and thanks followed by cultural programmes where students presented a skit of student life ,songs and dances, and a feast. Teachers were presented, bouquets, teachers’ day cards, gifts, momentos, etc, as a token of gratitude.
