We live in a fast paced world where everybody is rushed and has little time for nurturing relationships. To put it in the words of George Carlin – we’ve added years to life not life to years.
One of the earliest and important relationships is the one we have with our school (and later college) teachers.
The Journal of School Social Work is conducting a program this Teachers Day (Sep 5th 2016) where school and college children are asked to write a thank you postcard for their teachers. Our aim is:
1. To revive the dying art of letter writing.
2. For students to understand the importance of gratitude and the roles of their teachers in shaping their future. Unfortunately every successive generation seems to be more thankless.
3. To add a smile and make the teachers day more meaningful on Dr. S. Radhakrishnan‘s Birthday.
4. For students to understand the Romance of writing a postcard, be creative, take the effort in finding the nearest post box or post office.
5. To do a small study on the awareness of post office and their services among the next generation.
