Campion school honours grassroot teachers

  1. 1. Campion School honours grassroot teachers http://www.afternoondc.in/epaper/EpaperPost.aspx?id=35156 Print this Page | Close Window Campion School honours grassroot teachers Tuesday, September 20, 2011 By A Staff Reporter It was a unique celebration hosted by students of one of the city’s top schools for teachers of REAP (Reach Education Action Programme) who teach children residing in slums and villages. (REAP has 200 such literacy classes covering more than 5,000 children). Around 30 senior teachers from REAP were invited to Campion School by their Principal Paul Machado on Saturday, September 17 to celebrate Teachers Day. But for teachers who teach underprivileged children the date September 5 carries no particular significance. It is merely another day. Not even the children being taught know it is Teachers Day. No flowers, no thank you cards. These made the invitation an even more wonderful gesture on the part of Campion to honour and felicitate these teachers who do such a great job of bringing education to the most deprived children moulding them into responsible citizens of tomorrow. “Campion not only opened its doors but also its heart to us teachers by their warmth and smiles, beautiful welcome speeches by the students, a well designed power point presentation on the greatness of teachers accompanied by dances, songs, games, prizes, gifts and a good hearty lunch to cap it all. We went home with a feeling of awe, knowing that their work amidst the poor was recog-nised and appreciated. We are grateful to our Director, Dr. Trevor Miranda for organising this memorable event,” said one teacher.
