Teachers Day Event was something, which we always wanted to conduct, as a small gratitude towards our teacher. Our expectations exceeded our desired ideas and although there were numerous suggestions and infinite what-not-to-do’s.
The event was planned while looking at the budget, number of performance, decoration, theme and much more. It was not easy to start all the performance practices after studying hours at school. However, we managed to utilize our weekends for the practices.
To conduct a good event we needed excellent hosts, who will keep the crowd energised. Our hosts were Siddharth Singh and Lynette George from IB1. All the performances were from grade 8 to 12 students. The coordination between everyone was off in the start but with the help of our council members, we were able to be back on track and run the planning smoothly.
The dress code on September 5, was decided to be warm colours. Students were dressed up as teachers and our seniors were wearing saree. All senior students were allotted a class, to look for some time of the day, this was to show them how hard it is to look after small kids and teachers have to come up with every solution to handle different types of situations. We arranged photo booth for the teachers. We had two interns from our very own Pillai campus who gave their helping hand during this event and were happy to click photos for our teachers. Special thanks to our Art department for helping to arrange the necessary items behind the beautiful photo booth.
The event began at 1 p.m. our council was all ready to invite teachers in with a flower and a card. The event started with jokes, followed by a lovely singing performance by Melissa, Prabha, Lynette and Harsh. We had Siya from grade 9 enacting a story. We played games in which teachers was invited up on stage. It was fun to watch them being free from the duties for a moment. Due to lack of time, we had to cancel one of the games planned. We had a meme slideshow were we connected and made memes for individual teacher. Teachers were laughing on their own meme keeping in mind that no one should get offended. The event moved forward with a situational dance by grade 8 students, were a situation of a classroom with teachers were connected to a particular song. We had a very sweet and lovely song sung by Harsh. A dance performance by seniors was the last performance of the day.
The celebration ended up with cutting the cake and by taking many pictures. Many struggles and barriers were seen from the beginning until the end of the programme, but with the help of council members and individual department, we were able to overcome those.
Seeing our teachers smile and laugh and enjoying so much with themselves and with us, made us more proud and gave a feeling of completion of a successful event.
