Minister of education RB Zinnat Allayarov congratulated pedagogic community of our republic on Teacher's Day. The congratulation says:
"Teacher's day has become a really nationwide holiday for the years of its existence. Today as throughout many years hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren and students will say many kind and warm words to their teachers.
There are more than 50 thousand teachers in our republic. An ocean of flowers and grateful smiles of their pupils proves the fact that the profession of a teacher is the most humane and noble profession. Next year, which will be the Teacher's year in our republic, the further steps on enhancing the prestige and status of this profession will be taken.
Nowadays the modern educational pattern is being formed; the national educational initiative "Our new school" is realized. In new conditions, our teachers possess not only pedagogic skills, which they can develop participating in various professional contests, but also a high civic position.
Being a teacher is a special mission. You give knowledge to your pupils, cultivate high moral ideas of honour, dignity, good and justice in children, develop their best personal qualities, ingenuity, an ability to suggest new ideas, open possibilities of conscious choice of life ways for your pupils.
I wish all of you to be surrounded by your loving families and friends and to live a long life full of fruitful work and interesting activities!"
