NASHIK-MAHARASHTRA, SEPTEMBER 7 2013: Teachers hold a very important place in the life of every student after his family; and so rightly there should be a day set apart for all teachers to make them know how precious and valuable they are to the students. Indeed the students of Divyadaan, Salesian Institute of Philosophy expressed this in a very unique way with the theme YOU MAKE US GROW.

The day began with a prayer service followed by a felicitation program in Fr. Vincent Vaz Hall. The teachers were brought in procession to the hall. The whole show was handled and rocked by the enthusiastic and creative comparing by Vivian and Sachin, which gave a flow to the whole program. In his welcome speech Fr. Robert expressed his gratitude towards the teachers and the students with the message that 'Divyadaan is not about learning philosophy but learning to live, love, care and share with each other and thanking God together.'

The MPH brothers played a melodious tune of instruments in complete harmony. The TYBPH brothers set the stage on fire with their lively dance. An address was read by Nigel and Sagar expressing their sentiments of gratitude towards the teachers. This was followed by the presentation of gifts and cards to all the teachers. The SYBPH went a step ahead to express themselves through a skit which highlighted the sense of duty coupled with love.

The staff members then cut a cake to lively songs. This was followed by a delightful song sung by the FYBPH brothers. The teachers were in for a surprise when they were called to participate in the animated games. The program concluded with a group photo of the staff members and a vote of thanks.

 'Every teacher ultimately lives on to inspire others…' the legacy lives on.
