President’s Message: World Teachers Day

Among the greatest professions in the world, teaching is arguably foremost as teachers guide children and nurture them to be successful and good citizens as well as the leaders of tomorrow.

A teacher is a combination of wisdom and kindness. Therefore, it is accepted that teaching is not a profession but a responsibility that goes beyond service, and which is the reason for teachers to be held in high esteem in society. The World Teacher’s Day is celebrated annually to pay tribute to the valuable service of teachers.

As a Government, we are bound to fulfil our responsibilities to the teacher and their profession. I wish to recall the measures I took to protect the dignity of the teaching profession during my tenure as the Minister of Education, by suspending political appointment of teachers and established a college system. I also extended the opportunity for teachers to learn English through special training, especially by interacting with the developed world.

At this juncture, when the Government is preparing for a prosperous future for children, I hope that the teachers shouldering the responsibility of guiding them, will fulfill their responsibilities appropriately.

I take this opportunity to wish all the teachers a purposeful Teacher’s Day.
