They Determine Country’s Destiny: Namudu

Teachers determine the destiny of any country, says Fijian Teachers Association general secretary Maika Namudu.
Mr Namudu made this comment during the FTA’s and the Fiji Teachers Union’s celebration of World Teachers’ Day in Suva on Friday.
He said everyone should recognise the role they played and how it influenced the running of a country.
“The importance of this day is to show the world the importance of teachers in society. If there are no teachers then there won’t be any school, so schools will only function with the teachers,” Mr Namudu said.
“I think the role of teachers should be recognised globally and locally in our societies because this role determines perhaps the destiny of any country.
“If we don’t perform our role well then the country is going to suffer so the Government has a role in looking after these teachers and their environment and lastly make sure that they are given the best conditions of work,” he said.
With this year’s theme of ‘Invest in Teachers, Invest in our Future,’ he said if we had quality teachers they would  reciprocate that by producing high quality students from schools.
“These students will aspire for better jobs; for better professions and when you look at it very closely most of them aspire for good jobs and better profession because they have been trained very well at schools,” Mr Namudu said.
