  • Teachers Day @ Manchester International School

    date posted:Tue 17 Sep 2019

    An act of gratitude is absolute only when the receiver feels the true essence with which the giver demonstrates it. And the giver gets the contentment when the receiver accepts it unconditionally.

    Artistically and meaningfully decorated class entrances, thoughtfully designed class displays, aesthetically scripted cards and thank you notes, added worth to the effort of this great profession.

    The true display of Gratitude was optimized at Manchester International School, when the distance between the teacher and taught gently dissolved with mark of mutual respect!

    The whole day spearheaded by the student Council, had performances and acts by students across the programmes. Each one outshone the other in terms of excellence and quality- budding from the noble gesture of ‘thanks giving’. The post lunch session had sports organised for the teachers; from simple games as Lemon and Spoon race, to Tug of War- all held in good humor and spirit!

    The High Tea in the school lawns was a demonstration of thanks giving combined with genuine appreciation by the Management.

    As someone rightly said, No one is more cherished in this world than someone who lightens the burden of another.

    The traditional Onasadhya marked the most inviting part of the Onam celebrations. The sumptuous delicacies served during lunch included an array of traditional recipes of Kerala followed from time immemorial.
