Lawmaker Sagufta Yasmin Emily today underscored the need for giving special emphasis on women education for checking all kinds of repression against them.
Women should be encouraged towards education in this regard, she said while addressing as chief guest an annual prize giving ceremony of Kalma Lakkhikanta High School at Kalma in Munshiganj district.
President of the school managing committee Dr M Yusuf Fakir chaired the function while Health and Population Affairs Secretary of Awami League Dr Bodiuzzaman Bhuiyan (Dablu), headmaster of the school M Abdullah Al Mamun and chairman of Asian Group of Industries Harun-or-Rashid spoke as special guests.
Sagufta Yasmin urged students to build them as worthy citizens to brighten the country’s image both at home and abroad.
The 110-year-old school bears the memories of the Liberation War of 1971, Dr Bodiuzzaman said and added teachers could play a significant role in projecting the true history of the Great Liberation War before the students.
Later, a number of students were given awards for their brilliant academic results.
