Congratulatory message by President Serzh Sargsyan on the occasion of Knowledge Day

Dear Teachers and Parents,
Dear schoolchildren,

I congratulate you on the occasion of Knowledge Day.

The well-known maxim “Knowledge is power” is particularly valid in the contemporary world. The more educated the society, the more opportunities it has to organized its life, provide for its well-being, protect and develop its culture.
That universal truth is core of the program of action of the Government of Armenia. Problems of the system of education and the process of its reformation are in the center of our attention.
I congratulate especially the first graders, who enter the school for the first time to discover a new world which has no boundaries – the world of books, “an infinite universe”.
I wish the teachers and students success in new school year. Let it be a productive year, since for acquiring knowledge every year, every day are important. Knowledge is the promise of Armenia’s standing and power.
