Celebrate World Teacher's Day - Tuesday 5 October 2021

Monday, 04 Oct 2021

Australia will celebrate and thank the teaching profession on World Teachers’ Day on Tuesday 5 October 2021.  

Teachers (with support from parents and carers) have ensured education continues across the country this year, despite major challenges. It’s reinforced the significant role teachers play in the lives of children and students, their families, and communities.

According to UNESCO, the 2021 World Teachers’ Day will focus on the support teachers need to fully contribute to the recovery process under the theme“Teachers at the heart of education recovery”.   

Share your support for teachers and the work they do by: 

- writing your teacher a note, or draw a picture

(you can download some free printable notecards here)

- offer to help - a lending hand can be a huge help in a busy classroom

- just say 'thanks', to let them know they're appreciated 

- Sharing on social media - you can find some inspirational messages created by UNESCO here: https://trello.com/c/6RxKG6x8
