Teacher’s day Celebrations in Schools and Colleges :
Across the country in most of the schools and colleges, students dressup as teachers and take lectures in classes in place of teachers,and teachers sit in the place of students. By doing so, students realize what it means to be a teacher and what it means to control the future of several students in their classes and teachers on other hand are reminded what it felt like when they were the students.
Various other programs are also organised in many schools where students perform dance and dramas for entertainment of their teachers. Students Wish teachers Happy Teachrs Day by giving them gifts, greetings, etc.
Teachers mold the lives that they influence because the lessons learned from teachers remain with their students throughout life. On this teachers day lets appreciate hard work of our teachers in moulding our lives.
Another day on which students commemorate their teachers is Guru Purnima which falls on Sukla Paksha Purnima on month of Ashad of Hindu Calendar (Mid July)
