KUCHING: Sarawak Teachers’ Union (STU) ensures that the union will remain globally relevant and competitive.

Its president Macky Joseph said ultimately STU wants to make sure no Sarawakian is left behind in education.

Speaking at the union’s 55th year anniversary yesterday, Macky said since its establishment on March 29, 1965, STU has now become one of the most respected and biggest teachers’ unions in the country.

“STU’s involvement in the country’s education system continues to play a crucial role in sustaining and improving the quality of life of Sarawakians,” he said

Macky said STU has been working hard at expanding its reach, especially internationally, through Education International (EI) and Asean Council of Teachers (ACT).

“The union is eager to host the ACT Conference in 2021 and it is also making a move to have the Asean Teachers Exchange Programme organised here.

On the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on learning, he said: “Let us use online learning system via Google Classroom, Schoology, Telegram, WhatsApp and other viable media to continue teaching. We must stay at home during this time and let us pray that we will be able to go back to school in the near future.

“Salute and thanks to the government of the day (both federal and state government) and the frontliners in putting themselves above all to fight against the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said.
