Kulamavu (Idukki): The authorities of Karippilangadu Government Tribal LP School decided to celebrate the Teachers’ Day in a different way along with Onam celebration.
When the Teachers’ Day fell on the same day when the school planned Onam celebration, they combined both and the result was an Onam special flower carpet (Pookkalam) made with books.
The students and teachers joined hands to make the book-made ‘Onappookkalam’ and celebrate both special days together. The books in the school library were used for making the book-made ‘Onappookkalam’.
The teachers said that they tried the unique idea in order to convey the importance of Teachers’ Day to the children and to cherish the memories forever. Teachers, parents and PTA office-bearers took part in the celebration.
