Sri Lanka President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has issued a message to mark World Teachers’ Day.
Today is World Teachers’ Day. A teacher is the one who guides a child towards a better future. After being under parental guidance, it is the teacher who disciplines the child and transforms him into a virtuous, disciplined and knowledgeable child and places him in the society.
I wish all of you who are engaged in such a remarkable and honorable profession a Happy Teacher’s Day today and I hope you will nurture many more children with knowledge, wisdom and discipline in the future.
