“Teaching is a noble profession. My parent was a teacher and if I get an opportunity I would become a teacher. A teacher is a like potter who moulds the students into a beautiful vessel. Therefore the responsibility of the teachers is immense in determining the future of our country”, said union minister for transport Oscar Fernandes, addressing the teachers at the Rosario Church complex.

Oscar Fernandes who was on his visit to the Rosario Cathedral, gave a patient listening to the difficulties of the teachers. M P Noronha, advocate, congratulated the central government for enacting the Right to Education Act and stated that in the interest of providing better education, teachers should be allowed to impart quality education to the students and they should not be burdened with other activities like mid-day meal, census, continuous comprehensive evaluation etc.

In this regard he urged on behalf of the teachers to pass a suitable law to prevent misuse of the services of the teachers for any purpose other than imparting education. Fr J B Crasta, the dean of the episcopal city deanery and parish priest of the Rosario Cathedral welcomed Oscar Fernandes, Blossom Fernandes and MLA J R Lobo, and offered prayers for their success. Fr Alwin Serrao, the principal of Rosatio Educationl Institutions, Fr Rocky Fernandes, vice principal, Fr Amith Rodrigues, the assistant priest, Felix Albuquerque and heads of educational institutions were present.
