Each year, Teacher's Day is celebrated on the 5th of September in India. Teacher's Day is marked in honour of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who was born on September 5, 1888. Dr Radhakrishnan was India's first vice president and second president. He was a great scholar, philosopher and Bharat Ratna recipient. Since 1962 - the year he became President - India has commemorated Dr Radhakrishnan's birth anniversary by paying tribute to its teachers and gurus on this day. This year, being the Jubilee Year, Teachers’ Day was celebrated in a grand way at Monte. It was a day of great pride because Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff, past and present, were remembered and felicitated on this day. The day began with a Eucharistic Celebration followed by a Cultural Programme in the School Hall. Shri. Jayesh Salgaonkar was the Chief Guest for the day.
