DRASA Avenue School students in Lautoka presented their teachers with gifts and a tea party yesterday during their double Teachers Day and Fiji Day celebrations.

Class Eight teacher Satya Narayan said the students performed skits, dramas and dances along with speeches on topics involving teachers and the significance of Fiji Day.

"This was a great day for reflection on our profession," he said.

"Having the children say 'thank you' to you is a great feeling and their appreciation towards our profession is beautiful.

"They do the hard work every day and we are here to facilitate them รน this is a great day."

Students came dressed in mufti wear and enjoyed a morning of laughter and celebration with their teachers. The double celebration was moved forward because most students of Drasa Avenue School will participate in Fiji Day district celebrations at Shirley Park today.
