Chief Education Officer, Marcel Hutson, on behalf of the Ministry of Education, lauded all teachers on the special day. He even offered a few thoughts on his Facebook page.
He said, “A good teacher always inspires the hope, ignites the imagination, and instills the love of learning within their students. Teachers help a student to shape their character and make their future bright.
“They enable them to stand strong in this world by building them from within, by making them sensible and knowledgeable so that they become capable of dealing with numerous challenges coming their way and helping them succeed.”
The CEO said that a teacher’s job is not just a job; it impacts the growth and wellbeing of the nation since they indeed play a crucial role in delivering a quality education. Teachers, he said, are considered the ‘moral fiber’ in society since they play a part in building the character of pupils, molding their future and helping them to become productive citizens.
In observance of yesterday’s event, schools across the country would have participated in concerts and prepared lunches while pupils and students would have bought various gifts for their respective teachers.
Additionally, Education month in Guyana would have concluded today. This year’s Education Month was held under the theme ‘Promoting wellness in communities through quality education.’
