I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well.

The Grove School children celebrated “Guru Poornima” on July 11, 2014. The teachers were felicitated by the students who with gratitude and affection brought out the vital role of the teachers in their day-to–day life through many programmes.
The programme was initiated with a Guru Vandana. The poetic skill of the great sage Vyasa was depicted through a skit. It encompassed Vyasa’s determination and Lord Ganesha’s wit of learning. The students sang a song in English praising the selfless help and motivation of the gurus in upbringing the students.
The conversation in Tamil revealed the importance of celebrating “Guru Poornima”. The glory of the guru was brought out by a Hindi poem. The programme ultimately manifested the relationship between the teacher and the student.
This day apparently will be etched up in the mind of the students as it makes them emphasise that “Guru is equivalent to God (Guru Daivam).”
