Nadi Teachers Mark World Teachers’ Day

Nadi teachers gathered at Sangam College in Nadi on Wednesday to celebrate World Teachers’ Day.

It was the first time they gathered to mark their day which officially started in 1994 internationally.

Nadi Principal Association president Setareki Merekula said they thanked the Ministry of Education for acknowledging teachers.

“This is a brilliant idea to acknowledge how valuable the role of the teacher has been,” Mr Merekula, the principal of Ratu Navula College, said.

“It is high time that someone comes around and pats the teachers on their back to thank them. This profession works 24 hours. We work in the school and we take the school home,” he added.

Mr Merekula said the event was marked together by teachers in the Nadi District – primary, secondary school teachers and selected early childhood centres (kindergartens).

“We are pleased to see teachers come in big numbers despite the eleventh hour request.

Respective school heads in the Nadi District received their certificates signed by the Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts, Dr Mahendra Reddy and acting Permanent Secretary for Education, Basundra Kumar,” he said.

The senior education officer Lautoka/Nadi/Yasawa, Emoni Lebaivalu was the chief guest.
