Tribute to our teachers who left us this year: Miss Beryl Tirant and Mrs Linda Lusta   |28 October 2021

Those who educate children well are more to be honoured than parents, for these only gave life, those the art of living well,” said famous philosopher Aristotle.

Can we ever stop being thankful and grateful to our teachers? The answer is: No, we cannot!

Teachers affect eternity; no one can tell where their influence stops” is another famous quote by Henry Brooks Adams.

Seychelles NATION in collaboration with the Ministry of Education continues with the series of tribute to the teachers who have left us this year. The latest are Miss Beryl Tirant and Mrs Linda Lusta. Their contributions have been invaluable towards this sector, touching, changing, and transforming many lives. Thanks to their unconditional love, we are who we are today.

Let me share with you a famous Mauritian saying which goes like this: ‘Profeser i reste profeser, zelev i vin avoka’ (Translated in English to ‘Teachers remain teachers, while students become lawyers’).

Today we dedicate space in the Seychelles NATION newspaper to our teachers who left us this year. They all planted the seeds of knowledge, sprinkled them with love and patiently nurtured their growth to produce today’s and tomorrow’s dreams.
