Seek Wisdom - Atuara Buokara
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.
