Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has lauded teachers for their contribution to the development of the youth.
He did so in a post on his official Facebook page Friday to mark the occasion of Teachers Appreciation Day.
” Today as we celebrate Teachers Appreciation day, I would like to say that your contribution to the molding and grooming of young minds is invaluable to our country’s development and social fabric. Thank you,” Chastanet wrote.
“ Your commitment and dedication cannot be quantified but only felt and appreciated. I know that your duties constantly take you beyond the classroom and demands of you compassion, kindness, fairness and concern at all times and to be in this field requires you to have character of strength and selflessness,” the PM said.
“If asked to name that one teacher who had the most positive impact on our lives, one who consoled us when we were down or saw something in us that we did not see in ourselves, I am sure a name will come to mind immediately,” Chastanet observed.
He declared that to be a teacher means to touch a life forever.
