20th Teachers' Day.

The Ministry of Education (MoE) has announced that the 20th Teachers' Day celebration carries the theme "Guru Gemilang, Pelajar Cemerlang" (Great Teachers, Excellent Students).
This year's theme emphasises that the path of the teacher and student are interconnected. Both must mutually cooperate with one another in order to achieve excellence, a press release from MoE stated.
The MoE said that Guru Gemilang (Great Teachers) are those who are educated, highly knowledgeable in teaching and learning techniques, possesses a noble character and broad vision for the future.
Pelajar Cemerlang (Excellent Students) were described as students who had achieved both academic excellence and possessed an excellent character. These outstanding students must receive the proper guidance and support from equally outstanding teachers for them to become national assets.
The MoE stated that the Teacher Services Scheme that has been approved by the government is not only aimed at elevating the current level of professionalism among teachers of the country, but also produce competent, high quality teachers and school leaders.
Apart from long-term programmes, short-term professional development programmes should also be conducted continuously, including the School Leadership Programme and teaching development programmes in various subjects, such as literacy, numeracy and lesson study, the statement added.
The MoE reminded teachers of their responsibilities as well as the great expectations the nation has placed on their shoulders as they are key to the success of students and their future as productive citizens.
The ministry also hoped that this year's theme will encourage both teachers and students to strive towards excellence, and only by strengthening the two parties will the Vision 2035 be achieved.

Brunei celebrate Teacher's Day on 23 September every year to commemorate the birth date of the 28th ruler of Brunei, Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien III, also known as the 'Architect of Modern Brunei' who amongst others had emphasized on the importance of education to his subjects by introducing policy of 'free' education whereby the citizens are charged very nominal fees for attending schools. This policy have now been followed by the current 29th ruler His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah, the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam who have since extended the policy further.

Yesterday Sa'adah hosted a birthday party for her classmates at CHMS BSB. Since this is her first year in school, this is the first time ever she throw a party with her friends and of course the environment very much different from what she has at home. Although she has got not even a single presents from her classmates, she seems very happy to celebrate her 4th birthday with them. Happy birthday dear Sa'adah, may you be successful on your academic studies with the guidance from Allah the most gracious and the most merciful:)
