Guru Teg Bahadur Public School of Durgapur came out to the help of Uttarakhand flood victims by donating generously to the Prime Minister Relief Fund. Guru Teg Bahadur Public School, one of the most coveted English-medium senior secondary, co-ed, CBSE affiliated school in the heart of Durgapur steel city has always contributed to various social causes.
True to their ethos of thinking beyond the obvious, the teachers and office staffs of the school donated one day wage. The management committee also contributed to the cause. Even the students extended their helping hands, without any kind of pressure being given out by the school authority, which is so common in all other schools.
Together they collected a sum of One Lakh Rupee. Yesterday (April 23), the Principal of the school, Mr. Subrata Chattaopadhyay and managing committee secretary, Mr. Ravinder Singh Bhatia handed over a draft of INR 100001/- to the SDO of Durgapur, Ms Kasturi Sengupta, towards the Prime Minister Relief Fund for the Uttarakhand calamity that killed thousands and left lakhs homeless.
One of the senior teacher of the school pointed out that it’s not about how much you give; it’s the compassion, the thought of helping others that counts.
At a time when the Prime Minister himself has given a call to his countrymen to donate generously in PM Relief Fund, to reconstruct the washed out state of Uttarakhand, helps like this would undoubtedly motivate others as well said another senior teacher of the school.
Teachers are widely seen as nation builders. A teacher is revered in our society for mentoring our children, building their character and preparing them to face larger challenges of life. Sacrificing steps like the one taken by the teachers of Guru Teg Bahadur Public School, for the cause of the society, will definitely be a learning lesson for the students of the school, who are the country’s future.
