The Teacher’s Day was celebrated by the students on 5th September, 2019 who organized a beautiful program for the teaching staff. The backdrop had the wording “A Teacher is like a candle who lights the way for us.” It was very symbolically shown in the image of the candle burning itself lighting the lives of the students.
Fr. Leo Pereira, Rector addressed the teachers and the students highlighting on the theme on the backdrop. He elaborated on the life of the teacher and the dedicating of the staff here at Don Bosco. A teacher is like a second mother because we spend more of our time with our teachers that with our parents. Therefore we tend to imitate our teachers more than anyone else. He encouraged the teachers not to give up on the weak students and to believe in the words of Don Bosco who said, “In every young person there is a point of goodness is accessible and it is the primary duty of the Educator to discover that sensitive cord of the heart so as to draw out the best in the young person”.
The students welcomed the Principal and the teachers with flowers. Fr. Maxim D’souza and all the teachers gathered for the cutting of the cake followed by the cultural program presented by the students. and later read a beautiful address with a power point presentation though which they expressed their love and gratitude. Later during the day variety of games were organized for the teachers by the students.
