Development of the State depends on the capability of the youths who will serve the State duties to keep abreast of other nations, said Senior General Min Aung Hlaing.
Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing met outstanding students for the 2023-2024 academic year to give advice at the Myanmar International Convention Centre II in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday morning.
First, the Senior General and outstanding students pressed the button to launch the Time of Glittering Stars programme and saluted the State flag by singing the national anthem in chorus.
The Senior General and attendees enjoyed the song of the Outstanding Students for Life sung by artistes from the Fine Arts Department and a video clip on reliable outstanding students for the future State.
Speaking on the occasion, the Senior General stressed the need to teach youths to have a keenness for exploration, creation, and rational consideration, as well as cultural and national spirit and patriotism in compliance with ethics and social responsibilities.
He urged those youths to adorably preserve cultural heritages, safeguard the sovereignty of the State, benefit the society with good morality and become qualified, responsible citizens so as to build a peaceful society.
In recounting the history, the Senior General said that the outstanding student project was implemented from 1964 to 1988 to mark the silver jubilee anniversary. Then, he continued that the project was temporarily suspended after 1998, and it resumed in 2013 as the overall outstanding student project. The Senior General added that the outstanding student project was initiated in 2018 and then suspended in the 2019-2020 academic year due to the outbreak of COVID-19. The project has started in 2022-23 AY.
The Senior General stated that a total of 140 grade-9 students, 140 grade-10 students, 137 grade-11 students and 137 grade-12 students were selected from regions and states in 2023-24 AY.
According to the schedules, he revealed that grade-9 students would be sent to Bagan on their excursion, grade-10 students to Taunggyi, grade-11 students to Ngwehsaung Beach and grade-12 students to Chaungtha Beach to raise fraternity among them, exchanging experiences, accumulating regional knowledge and forging traditional culture.
He outlined that youths are nurtured to lend a helping hand to others and become well-versed in human resources to build a better society.
He highlighted that if the youths do not have educational knowledge, they will not be able to develop themselves, their families, society, nation and nationals, urging officials, parents and teachers to manage the lives of students not to drop out of school for various reasons.
The Senior General presented commemorative pennants to outstanding students from relevant camps for 2024, and the students returned commemorative gifts.
On behalf of all outstanding students for 2023-24 AY, Tripple Outstanding Student Award winner Maung Aung Kaung Pyae from Kamayut Practising High School spoke words of thanks.
Artistes from the Fine Arts Department and MRTV sang the songs honouring the outstanding students.
The Senior General, party, and students visited the exhibition and had lunch together with outstanding students, youth scouts, Red Cross youths, and youths from maritime and aviation courses.
Also present at the ceremony were SAC Joint Secretary Lt-Gen Ye Win Oo, Council members General Mya Tun Oo, Admiral Tin Aung San and other SAC members, Union ministers, Union-level dignitaries, and officials. — MNA/TTA
