Teacher’s day for the Primary section was held on 4th September 2015 at 8.30am in the School Hall. The programme began with the P.T.A. parents welcoming our teachers at the entrance with an aarti. Keeping with the theme ‘You light up our world’ each teacher was given a candle and a bookmark.

A prayer service was held with a hymn, a reading from the Bible and short prayer for the teachers. This was followed by a Prayer Dance put up by the Std II boys.

Std I then sang a Welcome Song for the teachers thanking them for all that they do. Abdul Gafar Supariwala recited a poem, ‘A teacher for all Seasons.’ At Xavier’s you teachers not only light up our world, but you are our dear teachers for all seasons in our life. A power-point-presentation of a song, ‘In this Moment’ was shown to the teachers thanking them for guiding our little ones.

Finally the Std III and IV boys danced on the song ‘School Ke Din’ telling their teachers that their school days are unforgettable with them.

The programme ended with the Head teacher saying a few words and the vote of thanks given by the School Captain Zayaan Mujawar.
