Jammu, September 07:

Govt SPMR College of Commerce, Jammu in collaboration with Rotary Club Jammu Tawi celebrated Teachers Day by Awarding meritorious teachers from Jammu division for excellence in Academics and extra- curricular activities. This was a great initiative by the Rotarians to acknowledge the work of the teachers and give a platform to other young minds as this will be an annual feature for the Rotary Club Jammu Tawi on every Teachers Day.

The Chief Guest of the function, Divisional Commissioner Dr Raghav Langar (IAS) in his address said that the best part of life is the time spent in school and colleges and that is what helps to make our future. He also said that teachers apart from academics help us to develop our character and inculcate moral and ethical values. He emphasized that there is no word that can easily define the role of a teacher in our life, as teachers not only make the youth but the nation. He also said that the role of teacher is not restricted to schools and colleges only but even later in life he was guided by his seniors during probation period and he had lots to learn from that experience. He concluded by saying that the actual journey of a student’s life is shaped by teachers.

In his formal welcome address Principal, Prof Ranjeet Singh Jamwal appreciated the role of the teachers in shaping the future of the students. He said that the institution of learning is nothing without the efforts of the teachers and they are part and parcel of the student’s life. He said that the idea for the felicitation of the awardees was proposed by the Rotary Club Jammu Tawi to encourage and recognise the efforts of the teachers.

Mansi  Gupta, student of the college elaborated on the teachings of Dr Radha Krishnan who always believed in the power of education as that could solve all the ills in the society and by extension the ills of the country. He appealed to all the teachers to not merely instruct, but to gain true affection for their pupils.
