"A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning."
At Ganges Valley School, students held the celebrations for Teachers' Day on 4 September. All the students were quite excited as this was an opportunity for them to express their gratitude and love towards their teachers. Poems, songs, presentations, games, in fact, the entire one-hour programme was the hard work of Gangians who visualised and conducted it with perfection. They had only one thing to convey to their teachers they love them and are grateful to them for being in their lives.
The students presented light-hearted songs and an upbeat dance performance to retro tunes. Games such as PrashnManch (Quiz), Emoji Game, Antakshari, and more were conducted, which surely brought out the competitive spirit of the teachers and their lively sides to the fore. The students of Grade IV recited a sweet poem dedicating it to all the teachers.
While the comperes kept the teachers' energy high, the budding musicians of Ganges Valley School played short instrumental pieces throughout the program, which were a treat to the ears. A montage of teachers' pictures was a spectacle that expressed the students' gratitude for everything their teachers have done for them. The "Rainbow Dance" performed by the students displayed various Indian dance forms. The dances showed how each teacher is amazing and how their convergence at Ganges creates an environment that is as dazzling as a rainbow. The Antakshari with a twist was a super hit with teachers. Ayan, the young singer of Ganges, steered the programme by encouraging and challenging the teachers to participate competitively. The teachers made use of this game to take out the hidden singers in them.
At the end of the event, the Vice Principal Ms. Cinymol thanked the students on behalf of all the teachers and appreciated them for putting together a wonderful event.
The students of Gangians once again have proven that they are good at organizational, coordinating and collaboration skills, and especially when it is all for their dear teachers they pour in one more thing, love in its purity.
