One day every year, we celebrate Teachers' Day in honour of the teachers who spend so much time teaching
us so many things.
This year, Teachers' Day began with a school
assembly in the hall where the headmaster delivered a speech. After that we
adjourned to our classes, not to have
lessons, but to enjoy ourselves.
My classmates gave a small party for the teachers
who taught us. Each of us contributed a small sum of
money to buy cakes, drinks and other titbits. On that day
we arranged the chairs and desks so that they surrounded
an empty space in the middle of the classroom.
So began a round of eating, drinking and playing
games with the teachers. Most of the teachers were very
sporting and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was so
different from having lessons.
The other classes gave parties too. So the teachers
had to move from class to class and participate in the fun.
I would think that this was quite tiring on the part of the
teachers but they managed it. After all it was their day to
enjoy and have fun.
One class even gave a short play for their teachers.
I did not get to watch it as I was busy tidying up the classroom after the party.
All in all it was a great day. The whole school was
immersed in an atmosphere of gaiety. So when the school
bell rang for dismissal I felt a little sad that it should end,
but end it must. The day was over and we went home tired
