Kids of Sacred Heart High School in Mumbai write out cards distributed by Disney Channel to their favorite teachers

Disney will be giving out special Teacher’s Day cards to kids during a specially conducted school contact programme - 'Mazey Ki Class'. This distribution was done in close to 230 schools across six cities and reached approximately 180,000 kids through this exercise. The kids were given one card each as well as a leaflet with a simple contest.

The contest will ask kids to write in the name of their favourite teacher – and ask why they would want to take their teacher out for dinner. Twenty five lucky kids whose answers are most interesting will get to take his/her favourite teacher for dinner.

Kids can also contact Disney through snail mail, SMS, website and the channel will send a special Disney Teacher’s Day card to their favourite teachers before 5 September. The card will have the name of the teacher as well as the name of the kid the from whom it has been sent. Cards will also be sent to school principals.

Apart from this, the channel will also air a special movie on Teacher's Day at 6 pm called Recess: School’s Out.

On the other hand, Nick will have a special Teacher’s month, which will have one hour of a Double-Decker ride every weekend! Nick will drive kids to school even on Saturdays and Sundays in a series of weekend programming that would highlight the importance of the role of a teacher and the joys of being a student.

One hour every weekend in September will be dedicated to the student-teacher theme.

From 1 - 2 pm, Nick will introduce kids to life’s sweetest, nicest and scariest teachers. The special programmes that will be aired are given below:

  • Double Decker: Special Teachers from 3 - 25 September
  • My Dad The Rock Star – 3 September. When Principal Malfactor shuts down the Music Program in Willy's school, Rock offers to fund the Music Program himself, on one condition... that he teaches the music class!
  • Kenan & Kel - 4 September. Does Kenan have a crush on his teacher? Kenan says he doesn't, but Kel is convinced that there's something going on between the two.
  • The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron – 11 September. During Botany class, Miss Fowl accidentally swallows a seed from Jimmy's DNA-accelerated spinach plant. This turns her into a 50-foot plant creature!
  • The Wild Thornberrys – 17 September. Eliza will stop at nothing to get a look at the gigantic, fierce Komodo Dragon that lives on the Southeast Asian Islands. Her plans are halted when the unexpected arrival of her home-schooling teacher arrives.
  • Hey Arnold – 18 September. Clear the lanes! Helga's bowling against Arnold and Gerald! The stakes are high, so the boys bring in Coach Wittenberg to help with their game. But that only makes things worse.
