Every year 2nd May is celebrated as Teachers’ Day in Bhutan, coinciding with the Birth Anniversary of the Third Druk Gyalpo, who introduced modern education in the country and is considered as the father of modern Bhutan. Students across the country put their best efforts to celebrate this day in as grand a manner as possible. They present various programs to entertain their teachers. They also send messages to praise their teachers and present cards and gifts to thank their teachers. The day is to pay tribute to the hard work and devotion of the teachers all year long, to educate their students. This day is in fact one of the most enthusiastically awaited occasions in any school.
Kelki students too celebrated the Teachers’ Day hugely. The students tried to thank their teachers in the best possible way they could. They had been preparing for the occasion for a long time. The program started at 9:30 am in the assembly ground with the singing of Zhabteon and few songs and dances in the open ground. There were also some games arranged for the teachers like musical chair and gift passing game. It was then followed by lighting of butter lamps and cake cutting ceremony in the auditorium.
