Teachers’ Day

Those who educate children well are more to be honoured than the parents, for these only gave life, those the art of living well.
Aristotle


Josephites honoured their teachers with a special assembly on Teacher’s Day, celebrated as usual on the 5th of September. The assembly commenced with the melodious rendition of a prayer song, ‘Blessed be your Name’ by the primary students.

Father Principal’s address reminded students about the role that teachers played in their lives by helping shape and mould their characters and personalities. He urged them to show their respect and acknowledge the sacrifices made by the teachers on their behalf by celebrating Teachers Day every day and not just on 5th September.

This was followed by speeches, songs, dances and poems dedicated to the teachers. The grand finale was a comedy show by the captains and vice-captains which stole the thunder and had both teachers and students in splits.

The fun and games continued with a programme by the PTA members which started with the felicitation of the retired teachers and continued the entertainment with foot-tapping songs, and dances. The day finally ended with a sumptuous lunch and memories to be cherished until next year. Hide
