Bangladesh students urged to contribute to nation-building efforts
Bangladesh students in the Kingdom were urged to contribute to making their country a developed nation at the 22nd Convocation and Award Distribution ceremony at the Bangladesh International School in Dammam on Friday.
Speaking on behalf of Bangladesh Ambassador Golam Moshi, Deputy Chief of Mission Dr. Nazrul Islam said the graduating students, who were being presented awards and certificates, were already starting their journey to help their motherland.
He praised Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, under whose leadership Bangladesh has stepped up its efforts to make it a developed country from its present status as an underdeveloped country. He hoped that the students will lead the nation in future and play their role in elevating the country’s status by 2041, which is the vision of present government.
Keynote speaker Prof. Mahbubur Rahman, Chairman, Department of Architecture and Engineering, Alasala University, Dammam, reminded the students that receiving awards and certificates was not the main target of education. “The certificates will be useless unless the students serve the nation and humanity," he stressed.
Hossein Ezzan Al-Magboul, Assistant Director, Foreign School, Ministry of Education, Dammam, said that he will try his best to continue supporting the school.
Dr. Zaid Ibna Ahad, Chairman, Board of Directors, who chaired the proceedings, said that the present Board was trying its best to elevate the standard of education with the available limited resources, scope and opportunities.
