My dear children,
Here we are in the glorious month of September. It is the ninth month of the year in the calendar. Did you know children that this month got its name as’ September ‘from the Latin word septem, meaning “seven,” because it was the seventh month of the early Roman calendar.
“Teachers, who educate children, deserve more honor than parents, who merely gave them birth; for the latter provided mere life, while the former ensured a good life.”- Aristotle
This month we focused on Teachers’ day to show some appreciation to our teachers for the hard work they do for us.
Teaching is one of the noblest professions anyone can opt for, and those who do it are called teachers. Teachers are one of the most important pillars of society – these individuals spend their entire lives enabling students to learn and explore.
In India, 5th September is celebrated as teachers’ day as a mark of tribute to the contribution made by teachers to the society.5th September is the birth anniversary of our former President and a great teacher, Dr.Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. He was a staunch believer of education. When he became the President of India, some of his students and friends requested him to celebrate his birthday on 5th September. He had replied that he would be honored if the contribution of all teachers would be observed on that particular day instead of celebrating his birthday. And ever since then, 5th September every year has been
celebrated as Teacher’s day.
The light of the world, the beacon in the dark and the hope that gives us strength to survive, is our teacher. Teachers are the ones who play an important role in transforming a student into a responsible citizen. They serve selflessly and Help us to reach our aim in all terms. Their contribution is not only limited to schools but it extends to society and country. Thus, after parents, teachers should receive
the due respect.
We are going through a very uncertain time as a global community, dear children. Only patience and perseverance will take us through.
I wish all of you good health and happiness.
