Greetings to Education Workers of the Republic of Belarus

    Dear friends,

    I heartily congratulate you on Teachers’ Day. This holiday is personal for every one of us as people carry the respect and gratitude to their teachers throughout their lives.

    To be a teacher is a high calling. There is no other profession where personal qualities, character, interests, commitments and skills were of higher significance.

    The entire life journey of the teacher is lit by kindness and the understanding of the moral duty before the society. Together with parents the teacher bears responsibility for the rising generation, transfers to the youth not only the necessary knowledge but also moral, spiritual and intellectual values.

    Thank you to your hard but so-much-needed work, professionalism and patience, understanding and love to children. I am confident that you will stay loyal to the traditions of the national education and will be a secure foothold of the state.

    Health, happiness and wellbeing to you and you loved ones.

    Aleksandr Lukashenko
