TANJUNG MALIM, Oct 24 (Bernama) — Teachers must equip students with the “nation and nationhood’ components throughout the 11 years of their study in schools, said the Raja Permaisuri Perak, Tuanku Zara Salim.

She said the responsibility was heavy but it was a necessity to ensure that the people in the country understood the meaning of being a nation and the responsibility of being a citizen.

Tuanku Zara, who is also the Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI) Chancellor, said the nation would easily be influenced by imperialist forces in various ways when the citizens did not understand history and were ignorant of their responsibility.

“The school forms the centre for education and a place for learning which provided an opportunity for the teachers to mould the young children to become useful citizens,” she said at the 19th Convocation of UPSI at the Sultan Azlan Shah Campus, here today.
