World Teachers' Day
Celebrate World Teachers’ Day this Friday!
On Friday 25 October, our union will celebrate World Teachers’ Day 2019 in Queensland.
The theme for this year being Teachers are at the heart of learning.
Everyday teachers are making a positive difference – creating opportunities for their students, empowering minds of young people and proudly teaching our state’s future leaders, innovators and influencers.
World Teachers’ Day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate to celebrate and thank teachers for the important role they play in the learning journey of students.
Celebrated in more than 100 countries world-wide, World Teachers’ Day was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in 1994 to recognise the role of teachers in society.
