CHENNAI: It was a nostalgic time for many former students of Holy Trinity School in Mannady as they gathered in the city on Sunday to felicitate their teachers and former Principal T Ponnusamy.

As the event began, the audience, many of them now professionals and parents, found themselves singing the school prayer and wishing the principal and teachers like they did back in school.

Ponnusamy spoke about the need for principals and teachers to work together as a team in the school. “I have never called my teachers ‘subordinates’, they have always been my colleagues,” he said. He spoke about the increasing rift between the students and the teaching class. In many schools students and parents can no longer approach the principals, he said.

At the event Director of Zeal Personality Development Institute, pointed out that adults have to be squarely blamed for the hardship faced by students. Taking the case of a 12-year-old student in Vellore who poured kerosene over herself and set herself on fire, the personality development trainer pointed out that the incident showed the insensitivity that students face.
