Guru Purnima Celebration
'A Guru takes a hand, opens a mind, and touches a heart'.
Concept of the Activity: Guru Purnima is observed to honour the teachers or gurus. It is also the day that marks the birth Anniversary of Maharishi Ved Vyasa, the author of the great Indian epic, Mahabharata. This day is also known as Vyasa Purnima.
The Objective of the Activity: Guru Purnima is celebrated to honour our teachers, who remove the darkness from our minds. They have had a special place in the lives of their followers since ancient times. An age-old Sanskrit phrase ‘Matah Pitah Guru Daivam’, says that the first place is reserved for the mother, second for father, third for Guru and fourth for God. Thus, teachers have been given a higher place than Gods.
All the pre primary students had participated in the celebration. A special assembly was conducted. Teachers spoke about the significance of the celebration. Kids celebrated the day by reciting shlokas and Gayatri mantras. A video was displayed about the history of Guru Purnima. The principal appreciated and encouraged the students for being respectful towards their teachers.
