Yesterday was world teachers day and the humble teachers here decided as usual to forego the celebrations. This has been our practise for years now. How come? I'll tell you why... one year all the enthusiatic students laughing boarded the truck with their salusalu and robei for their individual teachers.Someone asked,' who is that for?' The student said proudly, 'oh it is for my teacher.' A bitter reply came,' well,it is a day for the students to be fed all the nice food by their students.' Well ,this was relayed to the happy teachers.Ha..ha..ha.. I tell you ,that day I saw a glimpse of parents and the public view on our World Teachers Day celebrations. Like the rest, the following year we did not remind those concerned about our DAY.It is now a school culture not to celebrate world teachers day. But to all teachers out there, 'happy teachers' day' from one Banaban lady.

Mehn,,,yesterday during my ED350 class we were discussing the same topic "World Teachers Day".  The discussion came to a point where we tell others things that was normally done during this day!! I share my side of how we treat our teachers during this special day of theres. At the back of my mind, I know that there is a big event again at RHS. I recall how fun it was to do things in a way we try to thank our hardworking teachers for all the headaches we cause them and their sacrifices for us!!

As we know that this year's WTD theme is: TEACHERS FOR GENDER EQUALITY! This is a debatable kind of theme...i may say. But for me as a student-teacher, equality can be achieved if it would be practiced in school. With this, teachers are the sole contributor!! What say??

Well, i can't say much on this as im still'm trying hard to adapt and fit myself in a new field (not as a student BUT as a teacher). Like our lecturer says, "Get over the student way of thinking and start thinking like teachers!" WOW...:) this is abit tough!!

Anyways, I salute you all for your dedicated work!! I'm proud for me as a Banaban and most of all a PURE exRHS!!! I love u all my teachers (teachers in school, at home and in the community as a whole).


'HAPPY (BELATED) TEACHERS DAY' to all the teachers at RHS!!!
