Serzh Sargsyan: there can be only an educated Armenia
Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan has issued a congratulatory address on Knowledge Day.
“Dear Schoolchildren,Teachers and Parents, Dear Students and Professors,
I congratulate you on the occasion of Knowledge Day and the commencement of the academic year.
The constant improvement of the educational process has been and remains a priority of great importance for us. However, our common efforts will be crowned with success only if you, dear schoolchildren, study and study well. We believe in you, in the professional and human qualities of your tutors, in your parents’ attention and care. All this is done for you, for every one of you and eventually for our country. I have said it before and I would like to repeat now: there can be only an educated Armenia, an uneducated Armenia simply cannot exist.
I would like to particularly congratulate those of the Armenian kids, who will today for the first time go to school, all first-graders. They are starting on a road on which they will discover a new and infinite world – the world of knowledge.
I wish success to all teachers and professors, to all schoolchildren and students in this new academic year. Let it be a productive year, because that very productivity holds the promise of Armenia’s future power and image.”
