SEREMBAN: Sabah has been chosen as the host for this year's national-level Teachers' Day celebration with the theme of “Teachers As Nation Builders” (Guru Pembina Negara Bangsa).
Deputy Education Minister Datuk P. Kamalanathan said the theme was in line with the responsibilities shouldered by teachers as nation builders whose roles were very important even at the pre-primary or secondary school levels, right to the tertiary level.
“The Teachers' Day celebration is not just celebrated by wishing Happy Teachers' Day, but should also be reflected in aid and assistance that we can provide for former teachers,” he said after opening the Negeri Sembilan Schools Open Karate Championship here.
Malaysia celebrates Teachers' Day on May 16 every year. - Bernama
