Kohima, September 05 (NEx): The Advisor, School Education, K. Tokugha Sukhalu, on the occasion of the Teachers Day Celebration 2020, greeted all the teachers of Nagaland and congratulated the State Teachers Awardees.
He said that today for the first time after India started celebrating Teachers’ Day, the celebration is without the presence of teachers and students amidst the COVID pandemic.

The advisor also said, the COVID-19 pandemic has ushered in many challenges but we must seek out opportunities to learn new things and adapt to new circumstances. It has changed the way we live, think and work; these changes are most palpable in the field of education.
Education has always been at the forefront of innovation and knowledge, this pandemic has served to highlight that even more. If the spread of COVID-19 virus can be stalled by the simple task of 20 seconds of hand washing and wearing masks, then we can stop the spread of ignorance by the simple task of giving our time and effort to spread knowledge to the society through our schools, he added.
