“A teacher is by far more than an educator. A teacher is one who plays many roles – the roles of a friend, counsellor and mentor. A teacher can be the guiding force in lives even after one passes through the portals of school and step into a world where there is much to be experienced, encountered and conquered,” said Dr Elizabeth Lee, Senior Executive Director of Sunway Education Group and Sunway University in addressing the teachers at the recent Teachers’ Day Celebration in Sunway University.

“Today, we recognise the great sacrifices that you, dear teachers have made for our young people. We commemorate those who have taken up the task of educating our nation’s children, guiding them through life not only while under your care but for some for many years after,” she continued.

The event, themed the “Sunway Musical Festival”, was to honour and celebrate members of teaching profession, for their tireless contribution and dedication to the education industry and shaping the future leaders for the nation and the world.
