AHMEDNAGAR, SEP 17, 2015: There was a double-celebration at Don Bosco English Medium school , Savedi Ahmednagar as staff and students celebrated Teacher's Day and Self-governance Day on September 8.
The theme for Teacher's Day celebrations was 'You are our inspiration. Teachers are the life of every success.'
Celebrations began with a prayer service conducted by the students of standard eight, to thank teachers for their dedication and hard work.
Shaila Missal and Harshali Giri, both teachers, alongside school captain, Selvin Salvi, organised Self-governance Day.
Students of standard eight dressed like teachers and conducted class through the day. The Principal and teachers were then led in procession to Maschio Hall for a cultural programme.
Students welcomed them by singing the hymn 'In His Time'. Students from standard three, four, five and six then performed dances to honour their teachers.
Father Augustine then gave a teacher's day message on the theme itself, "Teachers are the life of every success." He explained that for Don Bosco, education was the education of the heart.
Preena Makre, Mahima Shinde and Sharmilee Kasab spoke about the qualities of a good teacher.
Sushmita Padale and Judith Mary Arun Gaikwad, both teachers, gave a vote of thanks.
