Teachers are the guiding lights in the lives of their students, leading them from darkness to enlightenment. It was followed by a beautiful prayer dance which carried deep significance.

What made these gestures even more special was that the cards accompanying the gifts crafted by the students themselves, manually. Each card was a labor of love and appreciation. The handmade cards added a personal touch to the celebration, making it even more meaningful.

The commitment of the students went beyond the gifts and the song. The stage decoration, a beautiful and visually striking backdrop for the celebration, was also the result of their efforts. It was a testament to their dedication to making the event memorable for their beloved teachers.
