TEACHERS DAY CELEBRATION – 09-09-2017

Teacher’s Day was celebrated in a very novel manner this time. Udgam School and Zebar School joined hands to make the day perfect for the ‘gurus’, the givers of knowledge. 
The day was the perfect blend of learning and fun. Teachers were welcomed to a learning session which had two parts. The stage was set with the Directors, Mr. Manan Choksi, Ms. Radhika Iyer and Ms. Pratima Patell occupying the dais. 
The first part was a presentation on ‘Comparison between a Good Teacher and an Ordinary Teacher’ made by the Vice Principals of respective sections of the schools, pre-primary, primary, middle and secondary. The session led to a good amount of soul searching and ‘eureka’ moments among the teachers. 
The next part was a topic that is often ignored, ‘Positive Discipline – an alternative to punishment’ presented by the Executive Director, Mr. Manan Choksi. He spoke at length about the need to rethink the past and present model and replace it with positive disciplining which focusses on self discipline rather than imposed. 
Next came the fun part which was a Djambey session in which all the teachers joined in with great enthusiasm, beating the drums to their heart’s content while following the lively rhythms. It was a great opportunity of bonding and living it up on a day made specially for them. 
No good occasion is complete without food. So if learning and fun come, can food be behind? A sumptuous spread was awaiting the happy and tired teachers who talked and laughed while enjoying the delicious food. 
The joint venture on the part of the school management and the HR team worked wonderfully to make the day a memorable one for the teachers.
