“Competent teachers are essential to an education system that can nurture qualified human resources,” Vice President Dr Sai Mauk Kham said at the World Teachers’ Day ceremony held at Myanmar International Convention Centre in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
In his speech, the vice president said World Teachers’ Day was organised to highlight the importance of teachers in nurturing new generations of youths, and that Myanmar society traditionally regards teachers as people who deserve gratitude from society.
The enhancement of the quality of our teachers is one of the objectives of the World Education Forum in 2015, the vice president pointed out.
“The theme of this year’s World Teachers’ Day – ‘Empowering teachers, building sustainable society’ – also means teachers’ authority and skills must be enhanced for the sustainable development of society,” he said.
The vice president urged teachers to try to be lifelong learners who always nurture themselves.
After the vice president’s address, Union Minister for Education Dr Daw Khin San Yi read out the message from President Thein Sein to the attendees.
Messages from UN officials were also read out at the ceremony before the vice president presented awards to experienced teachers.
Winners of article and essay competitions were also given prizes at the ceremony.
