Teachers Day Celebration
(5th September 2017)
The birth date of the second President of India, Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, 5 September 1888, has been celebrated as Teacher's Day since 1962. On this day, teachers and students report to school as usual but the usual activities and classes are replaced by activities of celebration, thanks and remembrance.
The birthday of Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan was celebrated also in Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalaya, Dibrugarh in a befitting manner on 5th September 2017. Students were given the responsibility of holding the administration and its responsibilities for today. A student of Class 12 science acted as the Principal and a number of students from class 10, 11 and 12 acted as responsible teachers, conducting classes from primary to secondary. After the classes ended, the real teachers were felicitated for their contribution in the life of the students. Students expressed gratitude and homage to Lt. Dr. Radhakrishnan in the morning assembly through speeches made on his life and his contribution to Indian philosophy education system.
Every year all the Vidyalayas operating under Vivekananda Kendra observe the day in the same way. The idea behind is to develop and motivate children to the noble profession of teaching through which 'man-making and nation building is possible'.
