Happy Teacher's Day
The Management, Staff and students of OUM Perak, would like to wish all our tutors and fellow students who are teachers, a very "Happy Teacher's Day".
Teaching is the most noble profession since the dawn of civilization and without teachers there will be no continuity of human knowledge as what we have today.
Teachers paint their minds
and guide their thoughts
Share their achievements
and advise their faults.
Inspire a love
of knowledge and truth
As you light the path
Which leads our youth
For our future brightness
With each lesson you teach
Each smile you lengthen
Each goal you help reach
For the dawn of each poet
Philosopher and King
Begins with a techer
And the wisdom they bring

PM Records Appreciation To Teachers:
KUALA LUMPUR, May 15 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has called on Malaysians to join him in recording his appreciation and gratitude to educators in the country in conjunction with Teachers' Day Saturday.
In his latest posting in his blog '1Malaysia.com.my', Najib thanked the teachers who had toiled to enlighten the minds of generations of Malaysians.
"I hope this venerable fraternity continues to do so with dedication for many more generations," he said.
He believed that teachers were the most unsung heroes in the country, to the extent that some were stationed in the most remote villages in the country.
"These are people who spend most of their lives nurturing and shaping the offspring of others, as the future human capital to spur the growth of our beloved Malaysia.
"Too often, their work calls for personal sacrifices, which sometimes go unnoticed and unappreciated by the people they serve," he said.
In this context, he said, their sacrifices and contributions should not be remembered once each year, but remembered and valued every other day of the year.
"As parents, we will desire the best education for our children, and hope that they develop into productive members of society," he said.
Najib said teachers were there not just to teach the students to add or subtract numbers, or to read and write in different languages, or to memorise historical dates.
They were there to teach the pupils how to be creative, articulate their their thoughts well, and understand their role and potential in the community, he said.
