Students at the Canadian International School, Bangalore, hold a yearly tradition of giving flowers. The flowers are a symbol of our gratitude and respect towards the faculty at our school who are always ready to lend a helping hand to needy.

Gabriel (Grade 3) - “my teachers have been really good and very kind" Jacob (Grade 8) - “the teachers at CIS are always cheerful" Helen (Parent) - to quote Albert Einstein "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." - I believe the teachers at CIS do a great justice to these words.

This symbol of happiness and thankfulness conveys the admiration and appreciation we students feel towards our teachers; the ones who've always been with us and gone to extraordinary lengths to assist us. On this day, the flowers we offer are our emotions; rooted firmly in the hands of our esteemed teachers for continued nurturing and support - Anant Hariharan, IB1 Student. I once read that teachers, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth. What greater compliment can be paid than this? I take this opportunity to wish all my friends and colleagues a wonderful day and year ahead - Dr. Penelope Abraham, Vice Principal & Director of Admissions. William Butler Yeats once said that, ‘Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire’.

However, the inquisitiveness that students exhibit is as enthusiastic and challenging to educators as ever imagined by our teaching forefathers and today we are proud to be the teachers to meet that challenge."
