Teachers day celebration at Deepalaya

Teachers’ day was celebrated with lot of enthusiasm in all the schools and learning centers. The students prepared cards for their teachers and dedicated songs. Here are a few snippets:

Deepalaya learning Center, Gole Kuan:

At DLCGK students celebrated Teachers’ Day on 5th September. Students delivered speech on Teacher’s Day by remembering Dr Sarvapalli  Radhakrishnan, the great philosopher, Scholar and 2nd president of Independent India.  They recited poems, narrated speeches (both in Hindi/English) dedicated for their teachers & their contribution towards our society. Archana, a class IInd student, told what does a teacher mean to the students, which was really appreciable. The students showed a lot of respect to their teachers.  Teachers were very happy by listening the inspirational song, “Humko man ki shakti dena,“Itni Shakti Hame Dena Data” sung by the students.

To encourage their spirit & to respect their enthusiasm, teachers also sang an inspirational song “Ao Bachch tumhe dikhaye jhanki Hindustan ki”. The celebration was held both in morning/afternoon shift. Students prepared charts by using inspirational quotes on teachers. They made us proud & happy by presenting beautiful greeting cards. Small Kids also remembered the day & paid tribute to their teachers by singing songs with their teachers. Teachers distributed toffees among the kids. Teachers were felicitated with pens & chocolate by the students. It was a proud moment for all the teachers.

Deepalaya Learning Center, Sanjay Colony:

The Learning Center was vibrant with the excited children on 5th September. The children wanted to express their love and  respect for their teachers. A cultural program was organised by the children. Even the compering was done by Rohit student of class IX. There were several dances, songs and talks on the significance of the day. Young children recited poems on teachers.

The teachers reflected on their achievements and failures after all “Good teachers are the reason why ordinary students dream to do extraordinary things”

After the cultural program was over and the children went home, all the staff of the different projects of Deepalaya in Sanjay Colony – Learning Center, Vocational Center, Health, FADA and Special unit –  got together to celebrate the day with a samosa party. It was a day to be remembered and cherished – signifying unity and the ability to touch lives and shape them . 

The day had a special flavour as Mr. Sakhi John — one of Deepalaya’s  Board Members – visited the center with his professor from Jamia Hamdard Prof. Ali Firdausi. He was taken for a tour of all the projects. In the visitors book he penned down these lines “Great to see the wonderful service for the community at this center. Dealing with Challenged kids is not easy but it is being done here with a lot of fun and joy”
