Chandigarh, September 4: Punjab School Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla today extended greetings to the teaching fraternity on the eve of Teacher’s Day.

In a press communiqué, the Education Minister said that let us celebrate this august day with great zeal and vow to provide moral value centric education through virtual means to the children during these tough times of COVID-19. He said that this day was observed to mark the birth anniversary of former President of India late Dr. Sarvpalli Radha Krishnan, an eminent academician, statesman and a great philosopher, whose contribution in various fields especially in revamping the education system was unprecedented.

Lauded the unprecedented efforts of the teachers during Corona times, Singla said that this teachers day is more special than usual as we have seen how the teachers have risen to this difficult task of ensuring educational continuity in these tough times when the traditional methods of teaching have had to give way to new digital and online education. “Teachers worked day and night to learn the new ways of education and accordingly use them to impart education to the students of the state”, he added.

Urging teachers to make all-out efforts to infuse the noble qualities of discipline, righteousness, truthfulness, sense of integrity and dedication amongst the students besides imparting them value-based education, the Education Minister said that the teachers are role models for the students to equip them for boldly facing odd challenges besides ensuring a bright future of our nation.

It is credibility and independence that are dear to us and epitomise our core values. We will question what is wrong and espouse what we feel is the right cause, at the same time fully conscious that both are relative terms but we will go by the interpretations are rooted in the collective consciousness of the people. At the same time, we will not stake any claim to be moralists as that can the most difficult test to pass and we admit it.
