He urged PakTurk to constantly improve and strengthen the professionalism as they have to discharge responsibility to groom their students to become leaders and face global competition.
Ordinary teachers direct us along the right path but great teachers inspire us to seek our own path, the Chief Commissioner said. Later, the students met with Dr Ikram Ali Malik, Chairman of the Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education.
