THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Teachers have a duty to instill awareness in children about the importance of environment protection and the negative impact of terrorism, Prof Galina Gomonyuk, former teacher of the Krasnadar State University for Arts and Culture, Russia, has said.

 Gomonyuk was speaking after inaugurating a seminar, ‘Importance of Teachers in moulding future generations’, organised by the Russian Cultural Centre in the city to mark Russia’s ‘Day of Knowledge’ and the ‘Teachers Day’ in India.

A doctor’s mistake can ruin the life of one patient. An engineer’s mistake can destroy a building. But the mistakes of teachers would spoil a society which depends on the next generation, she said.

 Children have high observation power. It is the duty of teachers to develop the skill of school children. It is also their duty to create awareness among children about the importance of environment protection and the negative aspect of terrorism, Galina Gomonyuk added.

 Prof Govindan Nair, head, Pushkin Institute of Russian Language at the Russian Cultural Centre, presided over the function. Russia’s Honorary Consul in Thiruvananthapuram and centre director, Ratheesh C Nair, said that Russia has always given and is still giving priority to education. “ While we celebrate the Day of Knowledge, we should also not forget the Beslan School Tragedy that killed more than 380 innocent victims including school children,” he said. The participants of the function paid tribute to the victims of Beslan Tragedy.
