The proprietress of Laurella International Group of Schools, Mrs Wuraola Ajibola Ogunmefun has described teachers all over the world as special people, who contribute to the growth of others and help them become champions.
She stated this last week at a special programme organised in honour of the teachers of the school to mark the 2016 Teachers Day.
At the event, teachers of the schools, both from the primary and the secondary arms celebrated the day in unique way as they took the place of students, while the pupils\students acted as teachers, presiding over the school’s activities for the day.
Explaining why teachers should be specially celebrated on the day in the school, Mrs Ogunmefun said teachers are meant to be honoured and appreciated at every opportunity because they go out of their ways to mould lives, thereby building the nations stressing also that, ‘teaching is beyond the four walls of a classroom.’
‘I am a mother and a teacher, so, I feel the pains every teacher and at the same time carry the thoughts of always seeing them joyous at heart. I really love to see them happy. So, today is their day, their efforts should be celebrated and recognised, “she noted.
She appreciated the Federal Government for setting a day aside for teachers to be celebrated in the country, noting that “bankers don’t have special day, neither do organisations set any day aside to celebrate their workers. But teachers are not ordinary people, we are unique.
The Headmistress of the school, Mrs Tinuke Dadeowo, in her remarks appreciated the school proprietress, saying “having an understanding boss is the best thing in the teaching profession’ as she wished all the teachers in the school “Happy Teachers Day” and prayed that God would continue to crown their efforts with success.
Meanwhile, the pupils the students of the school, also lauded their teachers and shower them with good wishes.
