Guru Purnima Celebration at GISK
“A educator affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops”.
- Henry Adams
Guru Purnima is a spiritual celebration of respecting educators, gurus, and mentors who show a direction for our lives. Guru Purnima is an Indian festival where people pay respect to their gurus and educators. The Guru Purnima celebration has been in practice since the early ages of mankind in India. This celebration is also called Vyasa Purnima. Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” The educator imparts education hence the role of the educator is of paramount importance both in the present and future of a learner.
GISK celebrated the auspicious occasion of Guru Purnima with a lot of reverence to acknowledge the contribution of learned educators in shaping the personalities and removing darkness from the ignorant minds. Learners paid respect to their educators with flowers and sought their blessings by touching their feet.
To inculcate the traditional values among our young learners, a function was organized in the Conference Hall of school with intense zeal and zest. The function began on a happy note with the learners singing the school prayer. Mr. Jayesh Patel, the Director of Gajera group of Schools graced the occasion with his presence. Mrs. Sonia Budhiraja, the Principal of the school enlightened the learners on the significance of ‘Guru Purnima’ and motivated them to follow the footprints of their gurus. This was followed by a folk dance performance by learners. After this, a drama manifesting the importance of the day was performed gracefully.
The program was ended with a vote of thanks. The function was concluded with National Anthem.
