Teacher: Rahul Mahajan
My teachers are beautiful pearls,
they take care of all boys and girls.
They are very helpful, they are very kind.
Everything they teach, settle to our mind.
They are more intelligent, their heart are pure.
They want our progress, this much I am sure.
Our school won HT Banner – First Prize.
By winning this, our teachers show how they are wise.
Palak stood first from Trans Yamuna in Xth board.
This was possible because our teachers divided our load.
We love our teachers, we sing chores.
Teachers are preachers. They mould our future.

Why we Celebrate Teachers Day?
Teachers’ Day in India is celebrated on 5th September to commemorate the birth anniversary of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. He was a renowned scholar, recipient of Bharat Ratna, first Vice- President and second President of independent India. He was born on 5 September, 1888. As an educationist, he was an advocate of edification and was a distinguished envoy, academician, and above all a great teacher.
As the common adage goes, the future of a country lies in the hands of its children, and teachers, as mentors, can mold students into future leaders who shape the destiny of India. They play an important role in our lives to become successful in career and business. They help us to become a good human being, a better member of society, and an ideal citizen of the country. Teacher’s Day is celebrated to acknowledge the challenges, hardships, and the special role that teachers play in our lives.
