This significant date is dedicated to all teachers throughout the country for their contributions in building our young generations; and also to commemorate the endorsement of the Razak Report in 1956; an educational proposal aimed at reforming the educational system in Malaya at that time (now Malaysia).

Dr Morni also praised the Education Department for their commitment inimplementing the 90:10 Policy, a policy that promoted the appointment of more local teachers, who will have more awareness and empathy with the needs of rural children, and are thus able to provide the necessary platform to ensure equity among these students in schools.

Thank you very much for making a difference in our students as well as in our young graduates. We are indeed grateful to know our students learnt and gained much from experienced teachers and are able to reflect on each event encountered and shared, thus enabling them to grow professionally in character, maturity and discipline; thus adding values to the future and betterment of our young generations.

Dr Morni who has personally witnessed SIDMA College UNITAR Sabah graduates; both Bachelor of Education (Hons) and Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education (Hons) as well Diploma in Early Childhood Education teachers grow to possess hearts of compassion.

He also urged all SIDMA College and UNITAR Sabah Bachelor of Education (Hons) as well as Diploma and Bachelor Early Childhood Education graduates to follow the footsteps of their mentors and senior teachers; to equip themselves with characteristics of efficient teachers, be inspiring and ever willing to assist, support and equip the young with relevant knowledge, skills, attitudes and confidence in order for them to become efficient future leaders of the country in accordance to the 2050 National Transformation Programme.

How and what we teach our young children today will determine the attitude, values, skills as well as social awareness of tomorrow’s citizens of the country.
