Teachers' Day Celebrations

“They inspire you, they entertain you, and you end up learning a ton even when you don't know it.”
A teacher is the eternal guru and guide, whose firm and loving grooming has shaped generations from time immemorial. To honour the hard work and determination towards the profession, the students of St. Patrick's Academy celebrated Teachers' Day virtually on 4th September 2021 with high spirits. The celebration began with a prayer song followed by a welcome dance by the little ones. The Principal, Rev. Bro.Tomy Varghese, shared an encouraging message on Teachers' Day. Students surprised their teachers by putting on a dazzling show with zestful dance, drama, song, etc. to symbolize their love, respect, acknowledgment and gratitude.
