Creator Schools celebrate National Teachers Day
Speaking on the theme for the celebration of this year’s event; “Take a Stand for Teachers”, Mr. M. M. Baku said the theme goes a long way to describe how unique teachers are, and would forever be, adding that every profession was important, but teachers irrefutably play a key role in the holistic development of every nation.
This was because teaching is a profession that teaches all other professions.
A teacher makes the doctor, politician, the engineer, the lawyer, the accountant and interestingly, enough the teacher.
For this reason, teachers should not be taken for granted at all, and that everything they need, including respect, motivation and better enumeration, are to be made available to ensure the smooth execution of their duties, he noted.
According to Mrs. Evelyn Markin, Administrator of Creator Schools, teachers were special in the sense that their work knows no bounds.
They operate in every sphere of life, including our schools, work places and the church. “They actually affect creation, in view of the fact that they transform the lives of people they impart knowledge into,” she concluded.
Rev. Mrs. Comfort Chemfe, Managing Director of the school, added that teachers must consider the day as joyous and be proud of themselves, because the teaching profession was service to God.
The Headmaster of the institution, Mr. Sarpong Amankwah Samuel, in his address, pointed out that the relevance of teachers in our world today can be a mind-numbing task, because there was no way to measure how teachers impact on lives. “Teachers affect eternity, and you can never tell where their influence stops.”
He stated that the ills of ignorance, a dreadful poison to national development, are professionally dealt with by teachers. “By reason of teachers contribution to human development, one could do nothing, but take a stand for them,” he emphasised.
He, however, advised teachers to uphold the dignity with which they are known for. They must also take to heart the academic needs of their students and command respect for themselves, through sacrificing themselves for their honourable profession.
