Teachers Day


If the students are the future of our nation, teachers are the real constructors of that future; if the students are the real assets of the nation, teachers are the real creators of those assets. Hence it is the duty of each individual to salute his/her teachers every day. As it is not possible to do this on a regular basis, we perform the same on 5th of September every year. To make its students to express their sincere gratitude to the teachers, ‘Hongirana’ organized ‘Teachers Day’ with enthusiasm and festivity on 5th September, 2017.

This year with the purpose of felicitating a retired teacher, Mr. S. V. Ravindra, a retired Headmaster who served as a teacher for 32 years was cordially invited and felicitated. After receiving our felicitation he opined, “It is one of the best practices of Hongirana to recognize and to felicitate retired teachers every year”. He even continued his words, “Teaching is a sacred profession.  To meet the demands of the students, the teachers should upgrade themselves by engaged in studies. They must always keep a research mindset to help their students”. As he himself is a living legend in the world of education, his each and every word was motivational to the teachers.

Chief Guest of the occasion was Mr. Satish from Mysore spoke, “Seven colors make the world colorful, seven days make the week beautiful, seven swaras make the music melodious, in the same way seven letters word ‘TEACHER’ makes the life meaningful. So it is our duty to respect all those teachers who made our life meaningful”. He also added that “Mother gives breath, father gives name but it is the teacher who guides us to maintain our name until we keep our breath”. Silence in the auditorium was proof to say that his words were very motivational and they were received by the audience.

In her Presidential remark Mrs. Amrutha Jog spoke about the role of teachers in one’s life. For her, students without teacher would be nothing and their life will remain incomplete. To stress this, point she used some images. She continued by saying that the teachers take their children from known things to unknown things. It always makes the learning easier to the learners. She ended her speech with a melodious song which expressed the teacher’s importance in student’s life.

In the foreword Mrs Ambika Patil, Head of the College section, stressed on the importance of felicitating the teachers.

SPARKLE (In my baby cousins’ eyes)

You caught my eye, when I saw you,

I couldn’t take my eyes off you.

You took my breath away,

You had sparkle in your eyes.

You blew my mind when I saw you,

I was speechless, seeing you flawless,

My heart beat rose when I saw you,

For all you had sparkle in your eyes.


 Losing a friend is

The most powerful

Thing, in the

Whole universe.

It is like- losing a part

Of yourself,

No matter how hard

You try looking for

Them, they keep

Going away, away…..

Thou shall ever be protected

By God, as we are not

Beside them like


Once the trust is

Broken between us,

It can never be

Joined again, again…..


 We walked around the

Park holding hands,

Before I got

Betrayed from her.

We swung on the

Swings and slided

Down the slides,

Before she

Betrayed me

But now, we don’t go on strolls

Anymore nor the

Swings are swinged,

Neither the slides

Has weight

On them.

 When I woke up,

I realized it was

A dream and prayed

To God this would
remain as a dream.


As small droplets of

Rain poured, I enjoyed

Every moment of the

Slow drizzling.

Nor any luxurious life

Can be compared to

The beautiful droplets

Of water and this is my opinion.

I jumped upon the

Water puddles

And splashed water

Onto the side as

It is the most

Wonderful thing to me

OH! How beautiful

It is to hear

The precious rain

Ending with the

Droplets of water

Dripping everywhere….


 Book is a dream which you hold in your hand,

Books make us wise,

Books make us intelligent,

Books play an important role in our life.

Books are mysterious;

Some are witty,

Some are scary

And some are funny.

Books are marvelous!

Books are interesting,

Books are wonderful!

Books are magical

And books are the best thing

To make you a genius


Here comes, here comes, Santa Claus,

Here he comes-

With all the presents,

You can imagine

Here comes, here comes, Santa Claus,

Here he comes-

With loads of happiness,

Thou can ever imagine.

Here comes, here comes, Santa Claus,

Here he comes-

With all the joy,

You can ever imagine


Jewels…. Jewels…..

You are the glittering,

Jewel of the nine kingdoms!

Across the great Nile.

Jewels…. Jewels…..

May the Blue Nile

Come upon thee,

Making you feel happy.

Jewels…. Jewels…..

Nor any diamond,

Nor any gem,

But thee are the most

Sparkling jewel to me….

Jewels…Oh! Jewels…..

SANKALPA (Psychometric Assessment Programme)

Two days Psychometric Assessment Programme ‘Sankalpa’ was organised for the students of class IX on 17th and 18th June, 2017. The programme was designed and conducted by three eminent doctors and Clinical Psychiatrists from Aapyam Ayurveda Foundation, Sagar – Dr Niranjan Hegde , Dr Nikhila Hirematt and Dr Shriharsha.

It was mainly organised to know the abilities, skills and interests of students and thereby to help the students to understand themselves and to give assistance in discovering or designing their future. It was a programme aimed to establish connection between students and their life’s challenges, focusing on life skills and aspects of their day to day life relevance.

On 17/06/2017, all the 99 students were interacted personally and separately   by the doctors for 10 to 15 minutes based on the response of the each child to the questionnaire which was given to them one day prior to this. It helped the students to share their learning problems and challenges and the councillors to know the child personally

On 18/06/2017 Morning, there was a separate interactive session for both teachers and the parents in which, the resource persons shared the real need and problems of the students and guided the teachers and parents in attending those issues. They conveyed the fact that, most of the students have received or understood the values only in words and have not internalised it emotionally. During this interactive session, students were engaged in different group activities like topic oriented drawing, pick & act etc. to know their skills & abilities.

In the afternoon, there was a session for students and parents in which students in group gave presentation on their drawing & did theme based skit of 5 to 10 minutes. After each presentation, the doctors shared their observations and motivated the students in adopting needed life skills

The two days’ workshop was a new experiment which helped the students to share their real learning difficulties and also the teachers and the parents in understanding the skills and abilities of the children and guiding them.

Environmental Day

“Environmentlal Day is not a day to plant the plants but it is the day to review the last year achievements and to plan for the next year work related to the environment”. Such were the words of Dr. Kumar V L S, Chief Guest of the programme Environmental Day celebrated on 6th of June. He opined that ‘population explosion’ is the root cause of deforestation. But nowhere in the world we address this issue. So our political system should address this serious matter more effectively. In his speech he also showed some videos on the effect of deforestation. In total, his presentation was very interesting and effective.

In her presidential remarks, Mrs. Saraswathi Nagaraj said that it is our duty to train the present kids to protect the environment. Because they are the next generation. Programme was anchored by Pratheeksha of class 10th, guests were welcomed by Niranjan and vote of thanks was delivered by Namitha of the same class. Mr. Sandeep Shetty has given the foreword.

In the same programme two pairs of 9th children shared the report on the survey which they conducted during holidays related to the effects of deforestation.

Abhishek and Vijith presented their study report on the environmental conditions of the village ‘Melavarige’. They presented that the place which had a good source of water is now facing the problem of proper supply. They started to dig the bore wells in large number and converting the forest area into agricultural land. It is completely destroying the ground water level. With this, not just the people even the animals are also suffering. This deforestation, forest fire, burning the plastic misusing and over using the water creating enormous damage on the environment.

In another presentation Namratha and Keerthana shared their experience. They studied the environment of Bhimanakone in detail. With their survey they come to know that this village is facing the problem of water pollution, air pollution and deforestation. Due to the peoples’ negligence they are washing their cattle, vessels, vehicles near the drinking water sources. It is polluting the drinking water. These villagers are burning the plastic wastages.  They are cutting the trees to build houses and for agriculture purpose. Forest fire is yet another main reason of the area for deforestation. In total due to everyone’s unscientific way of life and carelessness the whole village is facing many environmental problems.

As the whole event was well planned and organized there were no confusions. So the programme served the purpose of the day.

In the afternoon, all the students were taken to a walkathon organized by ‘Sara Foundation’. It was five days walkathon which was conducted to spread awareness among the people regarding the deforestation and environmental pollution. Hongirana Highschool students also joined and gave their support to this great event. It really brought the true meaning for Environmental Day celebration.
