What is World Teacher’s Day?

World Teachers’ Day recognises the high quality of early childhood teachers, teachers, casual relief teachers, principals and early childhood leaders, and the significant contributions they make in classrooms and communities.

In 2022, World Teachers’ Day will celebrate teachers with the theme “Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future”. The day provides the occasion to celebrate the teaching profession worldwide, take stock of achievements, and draw attention to the voices of teachers, who are at the heart of efforts to attain the global education target of leaving no one behind.

When is World Teacher’s Day?

The 5 October. However as this normally falls within Australian school holidays, we celebrate Teacher’s Day on 28 October.

Ways to Celebrate World Teacher’s Day:

  • Organising events that celebrate young teachers.
  • Gathering positive feedback from children can be especially meaningful for teachers – children could sign a card for their teacher, or even come up with an appropriate award to present to them.
  • Hosting a morning tea for your teachers.
  • Organising a staff gathering outside of work to show appreciation!
