Bhavans IES Celebrates Teachers’ Day

Tuesday, September 8, 2020

Bhavans Indian Education School, Kuwait held the Teachers’ Day celebration on September 5th, 2020, on its virtual platform under the auspices of the Student Supreme Council. The ‘shishyas’ of IES expounded their genuine love and profound reverence towards their ‘gurus’ in the most befitting manner despite all the limitations due to the ongoing pandemic COVID 19.

The eventful day unfurled at 9 a.m. when Mr. N.K Ramachandran Menon, the Chairman, Bhavans Middle East, addressed the virtual gathering of the teachers of IES. While extending the greeting of the Teachers’ Day, he stated that the annual Teacher’s Day Celebration serves as a powerful reminder to all the teachers about their long-term commitment to the student community and the society. He also added that vast knowledge and broad understanding of the subjects alone cannot make a teacher successful. He strongly emphasized that teachers must motivate their students in all the possible ways. Mr. T. Premkumar, the Principal, thanked the teachers for their sincere efforts to make the lives of the students more enjoyable during this period of remote teaching and learning. Quoting Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, he said, “Teachers should be the best minds in the country.” He also added that taking up the noble profession of teaching is an honor, but living up to the expectation about a teacher is very challenging.

The cultural event hosted by the Head Boy, Jerome John Thomas and the Head Girl, Vaishnavi Rajesh Pai, commenced at 9:30 a.m. with the prayer by the Cultural Secretary, Matthew Thomas Paul and the recitation of a few verses from the Holy Quran by Haniya Fatima of 10G, followed by the welcome note by the Sports Captain Adrian Peter, in the presence of Mr. N.K Ramachandran Menon, the Chairman, Bhavans Middle East, Mr. T. Premkumar, the Principal, Mrs. Anselma Tessy Judeson, the Vice Principal, Senior Wing, Ms. Meenakshi Nayyar, the Vice Principal, Middle Wing and Ms. Lalitha Premkumar, the Vice Principal, Primary and Kindergarten.

The Head Girl, Vaishnavi Pai, while hosting the event, addressed the gathering and expressed her deep gratitude to the teachers of IES adding the line “Matha Pita Guru Devo”. The Sports Captains Adrian Peter and Diya S Lal joined the hosts with a very interactive virtual game of ‘Anthakshari’ dividing academic departments into different teams. The rules of the game were clearly briefed by the Sport Captain, Diya S Lal who shared the slide of a spinning wheel to play the game. Each team was given 15 seconds to showcase their musical talents in any languages of their choices. All the team members took part in the game with a lot of team spirit and tremendous enthusiasm. The second game was a highly interesting word game which was led by the Head Girl, Vaishnavi Rajesh Pai, followed by the magic show by Devinandhana Prasanthkumar of 11C and Harichandana Praveenkumar of 10G. The Cultural Secretary, Theertha Kirhshna and the Deputy Head Boy, Adhityan Rajesh too joined the virtual auditorium with an interesting quiz for all the teachers. The students of the primary wing showed their deep love and gratitude towards their gurus in the form of a poem, and there was a video dedication from the members of the former Student Councils who thanked their teachers for their invaluable contributions in making them what they are today.

The programme was wound up with a vote of thanks proposed by Ms. Lalitha Premkumar, the Vice Principal, Primary and Kindergarten, who, on behalf of the teachers, extended her heartfelt gratitude to the Student Council members for organising a memorable event of this kind. All the teachers were overwhelmed by the thoughtful gesture of the students and felt honoured and appreciated on this special day.
