Bhutan Times - - Front Page - Sonam Pen­jor

Co­in­cid­ing with the birth an­niver­sary of third Druk Gyalpo, Jigme Dorji Wangchuck, the fa­ther of mod­ern Bhutan, the na­tion ob­served the Na­tional Teacher’s Day, to pay trib­ute to the teach­ers all over the schools in Bhutan yestr­day. The day bears a spe­cial sig­nif­i­cance as teach­ers are the one who carry for­ward the spirit of mod­ern­iza­tion and na­tional devel­op­ment.

In Thim­phu all the schools cel­e­brated the day and it was sig­nif­i­cantly im­por­tant as Yangchen­phu HSS cel­e­brated its golden ju­bilee this year, the school was es­tab­lished by His Majesty the Third Druk Gyalpo in 1965. Speak­ing at the in­au­gu­ra­tion, the Third Gyalpo has proph­e­sied the fu­ture suc­cess of the school “I think our new beloved school is go­ing to be one of the jew­els of the fu­ture of Bhutan or at least we should make it one of the real jew­els of the Thim­phu val­ley”.

In Moth­ithang HSS the day was cel­e­brated with the award­ing of cer­tifi­cates to their teach­ers by the stu­dent board as a to­ken of ap­pre­ci­a­tion. Lopen Karma Ge­ley a 43 years old teacher, who served for 24 years, said that to­day is the day and it is a great op­por­tu­nity to ob­serve and cel­e­brate na­tional teacher’s day. He said that although he doesn’t have good re­ward as com­pare to other ser­vice but by pro­fes­sion be­ing as a teacher, he can guide stu­dents, ev­ery­day ev­ery minute and en­hance the knowl­edge.

“Be­ing a teacher it’s not only to have a trib­ute from our stu­dent but it is very im­por­tant to re­al­ize and work hard to make our stu­dent best since they are the fu­ture cit­i­zens of our coun­try” , he added.

An­other teacher Mr. Syed A Haque from the same school said that as a teacher he should think for whole world’s teacher not only for teach­ers of Bhutan, since the teach­ers are like the can­dle which is burning till the end of life. Be­cause teacher’s life is ded­i­cated to the stu­dent; he is not a teacher for school only but a teacher for 24 hours.

He added that the ac­tions of a teacher is rec­og­nized even by the so­ci­ety ev­ery time, so one teacher do wrong things,

the blame comes to whole teacher, so be­ing as a teacher he said that we should be very cau­tious about our ac­tion and the work.

As a role model, not only to the stu­dents, but also to the so­ci­ety, so we should think be­fore do­ing any work, he added.

Mr. Prabu N an­other teacher said a teacher should be ready to work for stu­dents in their life so we want to ded­i­cate our life for the stu­dents but stu­dent should un­der­stand about their life. He added that as to­day’s stu­dent are go­ing into the so­cial me­dia, they are not aware of their life and also there is no proper guid­ance from the par­ents as the par­ent had to work, so they don’t re­ally have time to give care for their chil­dren but as a teacher we know about the prob­lems of their chil­dren in terms of stud­ies. “We should study prop­erly, as study will only help them in their life”, he added.

Deki Wangmo of XI Science “B” from Motithang Higher Sec­ondary said that she thinks that teach­ers’ day is the best way to re­pay for their ser­vice and it is the day to honor their ca­pa­bil­i­ties. She also added that it is the im­por­tant day in the school cal­en­dar since we the stu­dents could re­ally show our re­spect and our heart­felt grat­i­tude for the teach­ers and could some­how re­pay them in our own small ways.

An­other stu­dent Sonam Dorji of XI com­merce of the same school that teacher’s day is the most im­por­tant day for stu­dents and for teach­ers. “it is the mem­o­rable day for all the teach­ers as the stu­dents had a chance to ex­press our heart­felt
