|In India, Teachers’ Day is celebrated on 5th September every year to commemorate the birth anniversary of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan – First Vice-President of India and the second President of India and an educationist at heart. While globally, Teachers’ Day is celebrated on 5th October, in India, it is celebrated on 5th September from 1962 onward.|
The students of the MCA Dept of the college under the banner of ViCA (Vidya Computer Applications Association) organised a simple function on 5 September 2019 to celebrate Teachers’ Day. The programme began with a welcome address by Renjith Krishnan (S5 MCA and ViCa Secretary) which turned out to be more an inspired talk, with quotes from scriptures, on why teachers were given such a high position and respect in Indian society. All the faculty and staff of the Dept who were present congratulated the students for organising such a function. The students also spoke on the occasion and presented beautiful individualised mementos to the faculty and staff of the Dept. The students had arranged a cake-cutting ceremony as part of the celebrations.
