Fun-filled day for teachers and students

PETALING JAYA - Teachers and students had a merry celebration honouring the teaching staff.

At SK Taman Megah here, many of the pupils toted large grocery bags laden with presents on Teachers Day yesterday.

"I like my teacher because she is kind," said Jesreen Kaur, 10, who got a glass present for her teacher.

Two other 10-year-olds, Looi Sherlyn and Nicholas Wong, said they gave pens and flowers to their teachers.

The students also enjoyed performances by their schoolmates and teachers, including a number composed by teacher Leong Whye Sam.

Joining the festivities were former pupils who are now in secondary school.

"They really love the school and they came back to see their old teachers.

"They also asked to help out with things," said Parent-Teacher Asso­ciation member Nadiah Paut.

There were also many parents, some of whom stayed back to share refreshments with teachers in the canteen.

The teachers later played games as the pupils cheered them on.
