Macao Teachers Celebrate Their Own Festival

MACAO, September 10 -- More than 1,300 teachers in Macao gathered Monday night to celebrate the Teachers' Day.

Forty-three of them who have been engaged in teaching for 20 years or more were given awards by the Education and Youth Affairs Bureau of the Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR).

Education is of increasingly significance as knowledge economy has become the driving force for the development of the whole world, Vong Fong Va, director of the Chinese Education Association of Macao, said at the gathering.

Vong encouraged the teachers to keep on acquiring new knowledge and dedicate themselves to education so as to better live up to the expectations of the society as well as the parents of students.

Macao's teachers began celebrating the festival together with teachers in China's inland in 1985, when local government announced that teachers in non-profit schools would receive government allowances.
