National School Principals Day
National School Principals Day is held on May 1st of every year. There is one soul in the world next to your parents and teachers who wished for your better future. It is none other than your school principal. The role of the principal often appears to be a villain like character as they often look serious. With this view, most often they were misunderstood by the students whereas this is not the truth. National School Principals Day is set aside to change such thoughts and raise awareness of the important role played by the principals in the life of every other student. It is those school principals who work hard for the betterment of the students as well as the school and without whom you wouldn’t have been in such a good position.
“The principal’s role is to lead the school’s teachers in a process of learning to improve their teaching, while learning alongside them about what works and what doesn’t.” – Michael Fullan
History of National School Principals Day
The National School Principals Day has been founded by the Janet Dellaria of Trout Creek, Michigan. However, the exact year of when this observance has been started is unknown. With this celebration, the Day aims at recognizing and honouring all the school principals and the successful role played by them. The School Principals Day also gives us an opportunity to remember and take time to thank the principal who is the educational leaders of any school. Let it be a small or big school, there will be a post for the principal who takes care of the whole school. Their work is endless and incredible which cannot be compared with any other role. But according to the students perspective, there are only a few principals who are positive and supportive as most others are seen as an enemy. Thus, School Principals Day actively look forward to bring a positive feel about the school principals as they are concerned only about the students, their welfare and bright future.
