Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan's congratulatory message addressed to the school graduates
Congratulations to all of you on the Last Lesson. Today you cross one of the most important borderline of your life. You are moving from childhood to adulthood, the first steps of which are waiting for you weeks later, when you will have to make decisions that will directly impact the essence and quality of your future life.
It is, of course, first of all about choosing a profession, and I hope that our dear teachers have been able to endow you with such skills during your school years that you will be able to make the right decision.
And what is the right decision? Choose a profession that you love and not others. Choose a profession that will motovate you to wake up as early as possible every day and go to work with pleasure, and will be a benefit for other people.
I believe that everyone has a mission in this life. Each of you has a mission in this life, and the right choice of profession, the choice with the heart and soul is the process of finding that mission, which is probably the most important decision you will have to make in the near future.
I do not want you to pursue diplomas that sometimes give nothing, I want you to pursue a mission, be it a mission of a teacher, a scientist, a doctor, a military man, a businessman, an artist, an engineer, a policeman, a judge, a cook, a builder, a locksmith, a welder, a waiter, a farmer, a carpenter. I want you to believe in your mission of changing the world for the better, changing our homeland for the better, I want you to believe in your civic mission as well, because very soon you will have the opportunity to make decisions about the future of the country as a voter. I believe in you, I want you to fully believe in yourself and your future. In any case, the guarantee of that future is knowledge and skill.
I congratulate also you, I know that today many of you and your students will have tears in eyes. Beyond those feelings is the responsibility, our joint responsibility for the future of the students leaving school today. Our homeland is going through difficult times, I want to reaffirm that all the problems we have, we must first find and solve them in the field of education, because all these problems, without exception, were conceived at the primary school or general education level, sometimes and often due to their absence or incompleteness in the true sense of the word. Today, our government is implementing large-scale reforms in the field of general education. At the heart of these reforms is access to quality education, emphasizing the uniqueness of the teacher's role, with all its implications. I announced at yesterday's Cabinet meetong that quality reform in the field of education is our most important task, we have nothing more important to do. There is no exaggeration in this.
Today is the last lesson at school, but life gives us lessons every day, I wish all of us good progress in that lifelong learning, for the sake of our homeland, for the sake of our generations, for the sake of our martyrs.
