Teacher's Day


Teacher’s Day

“Teachers encourage minds to Think, hands to Create and Hearts to love”.

Teacher’s Day is a day that is celebrated all over the country on  5th September.  It’s the day that happens to be the birthday of India’s former President, Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. He was one of the respected teachers. Dr. Radhakrishnan was a teacher in many reputed universities. The former President was appreciated and loved by his colleagues and students. After Dr. Radhakrishnan became the President, his students requested  him if they could celebrate his birthday all over the country. He told his students that he would feel better if they would celebrate his birthday as Teacher’s Day instead. From 1962, 5th September is celebrated as Teacher’s Day in our country.

Teacher’s Day is a day celebrated to show the appreciation towards teachers and their special contributions towards education. Teachers are the ones who hold knowledge and empathy for their students. Teachers leave a significant impact on each person’s life. They help students, motivate and guide them to become the best version of themselves. Teacher’s Day is one of the most memorable days in the life of a teacher and a student.

Every year our students of STEM WorldSchool, one of the best international schools in Kolkata, take initiative to celebrate the Teacher’s Day with great joy and enthusiasm to respect and value the efforts of their teachers. Students decorate their classrooms to give a surprise to their teachers. They present teachers with flowers, handmade cards, pens and chocolates.  Special programme is being organized on this day by the students of senior sections. Principal, Teachers and staffs are invited in the auditorium and they watch their performances. Students give speeches, perform dances, songs, poem recitals, skits and fun games to express their emotions and themselves towards their teachers with light hearts.

Teacher’s Day is celebrated by the students to pay respect and tribute to their teachers and is a reminder of the role that teachers play in nation-building by guiding and educating the brightest minds of our country.
