SWEARING OF FIRST-YEAR STUDENTS
I am already a student at Armenian State Pedagogical University that bears the name of the Great Illuminator Khachatur Abovyan.
From now on, I have enlisted in the great army whose first teacher was Mesrop Mashtots whose noble ideas guided our forebears in their struggle against ignorance for the sake of brilliant future. The Armenian writing is as old as the roots of the Armenian nation. It is a great honor for me to get a stable and deep knowledge, abilities and skills and after becoming a teacher seed those in the souls of children like a kind seedsman.
I swear, Great Teacher, to listen to the call of centuries and become custodian of the Armenian writing before stepping the building named after you. Today we, the great singer of the Armenian wound and its fair uprising, have come to say that we are born again and live anew…
At this solemn and sacred moment, I swear to remain faithful to the title I voluntarily accredited to. I swear.
