ALL ABOUT TEACHERS: TEACHERS’ DAY 2017
By: Jerson Garcia- EIM 1A
On this day, October 05, 2017, it is school as usual for children but with a difference. There are no studies, no classes are held and none of the usual activities are carried out.
Instead, there are big preparations for this much awaited day. The celebrations start off with the Teachers’ day speech and thanks followed by cultural programmes, some other activities and a feast. Teachers are presented, bouquets, teachers’ day cards, gifts, momentos, etc, as a token of gratitude.
Today, it is common to send teachers’ day SMS and e greetings to teachers.
To our dedicated teachers in TESDA-CVS, we dearly appreciate your patience and kindness in guiding us.
A few interesting ways in which teachers can be appreciated are given below.
By way of small personal notes, emails or letters, students can show teachers how highly they are respected, regarded and loved.
Try welcoming them with a shower of flower petals. a musical band playing as they come in or by giving them flower bouquets on their arrival.
Present them with some gift items specially made for this occasion like mugs, school bags, t-shirts having the teachers’ name printed on them. This will make them very happy.
In honor of teachers a small party can be arranged, along with some music, dance and food.
