KNUE celebrated Teacher’s Day on May 12th at the Teachers’ Cultural Center. Although the original Teacher‘s Day is May 15th, the event was held three days earlier. Students, professors and staff members participated in the event, including the students and principals from three of KNUE’s attached schools.

This event was designed to commemorate Teacher’s Day in a new form of harmony between tradition and modernity. As well known, the birthday of King Sejong the Great became Teacher’s Day in Korea in order to honor and commemorate him. Leaving a great achievement symbolized as Hangul, King Sejong also established the entrance ceremony to Sungkyunkwan—Korea’s first higher educational institution, which includes pupils asking their teachers to provide lessons. KNUE has been conducting the commemorative event by modernizing the Sungkyunkwan Entrance Ceremony for a more meaningful Teacher’s Day every year.

The Teacher’s Day event started with the opening ceremony, followed by the traditional entrance ceremony such as an offering of flowers and greetings. In addition, there also was a sequence of presentations on the theme “Teachers’ Gratitude” including essays and video clips. During the presentation, some participants were soaked in tears.

Ahn Hee-won, an undergraduate student majoring in Chinese Language Education, said: “I was impressed by the essay presentation and video clips. It was also a meaningful time to re-think about the gratitude of my teachers.”
