SIBU: Kanowit District ed­u­ca­tion of­fice held its ‘ 2018 Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Night’ for about 1,000 peo­ple com­pris­ing teach­ers and its staff at a lead­ing ho­tel here on Fri­day.

The cer­e­mony was of­fi­ci­ated by Ngemah as­sem­bly­man Alexan­der Vin­cent.

In his re­marks, Alexan­der called on ed­u­ca­tors in Kanowit District to al­ways be op­ti­mistic in ef­forts to im­prove the ed­u­ca­tion level in the district.

“All of the chal­lenges should not be­come a hin­drance for all of us to co­op­er­ate with the rel­e­vant par­ties to achieve ex­cel­lent re­sults.

“The suc­cess of the school is fully de­pended on the teach­ers, staff and also the school’s Par­ent- Teacher- As­so­ci­a­tion ( PTA). With­out their sup­port, the school would not be able to achieve suc­cess in pro­duc­ing hu­man cap­i­tal in the fu­ture,” he said.

He added the event was held to show ap­pre­ci­a­tion to ed­u­ca­tors in Kanowit District for their roles and con­tri­bu­tions in ed­u­cat­ing the stu­dents.

Alexan­der stressed that teach­ers play an im­por­tant role to en­sure that the trans­for­ma­tion agenda is achieved through the most ef­fec­tive and fastest way.

“This is to help pre­pare our hu­man cap­i­tal for the chal­lenges in the Fourth In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion ( IR4.0) era”.

Kanowit District Of­fi­cer Bu­gin Ra­goon was among those present.
