This year Bajo HSS is going to celebrate teacher’s day by planting tree saplings around Bajo town. Around 900 saplings will be planted by all teachers and students individually. Every individual will be responsible for the well growth of the sapling which means everybody will take charge to water and manure the sapling. More over this will be a class competition. Every sapling will have name tag of the care giver. After few years Bajo town would be turning green. This project is being supported by PHPA II environment sector. This initiative is initially advocated by Sir Passang Tshering. The plantation of sapling will commence at around 7:30 AM and after that will be having programs, probably by student body.
All of us have been students at some stage of our life and have benefited from our teachers. Celebration of Teachers' Day is a wonderful opportunity especially for all of us to show our gratitude and appreciation to our teachers.
On this very auspicious day I would like thank all my forgone teachers for being great in my life. “In teaching you cannot see the fruit of a day's work. It is invisible and remains so, maybe for twenty years”. Jacques Barzun
