The President of Belarus congratulated Belarusian teachers with their professional holiday.
Alexander Lukashenko, President of Belarus:
The profession of a teacher is very demanding. A teacher should always be an example for pupils. It requires intelligence, creative approach and constant self-improvement. The educational system today has a number of important tasks. It has not only to educate a young generation but also to raise hardworking, healthy people with high moral standards. It has to cultivate love for Belarus, respect for spiritual values of Belarusian people and desire to become professional in their chosen sphere.
