The message reads, in part:
“It is gratifying that your forum is building traditions and serves as a unique and much-needed venue for constructive and creative discussions of representatives of government bodies, educational and public organisations, members of search parties and volunteer movements. All of you are united by sincere feelings for the preservation of our historical memory, for giving the youth a sense of alignment with the destiny of our Fatherland, high moral ideals and values which were inherent in our ancestors from time immemorial and are passed on from one generation to another.
The forum’s programme has a wide range of issues related to the improvement of the education system. Support for promising initiatives, the use of cutting-edge technologies and effective practices. It also includes the main event of the forum: presenting the Patriot 2021 National Award.
I believe the award will show distinguished, talented and established leaders of civic and patriotic education and will be a worthy reward for meaningful and selfless efforts.”
