Malaysia celebrates Teachers’ Day on 16th May annually, a day to honour and remember our teachers contribution to educating the children of the nation.
This date was chosen because on the same day in 1956, the Federal Legislative Council of the Federation of Malaya endorsed the Razak Report, one of four reports of the Education Committee regarding education in Malaysia. The document, known as the Razak Report after Tun Abdul Razak who was Education Minister at the time, has been the basis of education in Malaysia ever since.
This year theme - “Guru Tunjang Sekolah Sejahtera” is a befitting recognition for the country's educators. In doing so, the Education Ministry has also emphasised an important thing: teachers do not just impart knowledge, but build character too.
Thank you Teachers !
