5th September was the teacher's day

It was celebrated in the school. Children performed some songs and dance for the teachers and later, during the day, there was a small party where teacher enjoyed the lunch and games.

5th September is the birthday of a great teacher Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan.

When Dr. Radhakrishnan became the president of India in 1962, some of his students and friends approached him and requested him to allow them to celebrate 5th September, his "birthday". In reply, Dr, Radhakrishnan said, "instead of celebrating my birthday separately, it would be my proud privilege if September 5 is observed as Teachers' day". The request showed Dr.Radhakrishnan's love for the teaching profession.

From then onwards, the day has been observed as Teachers' Day in India.
