World Teachers Day
Last Friday Australia celebrated World Teachers Day and we hope the students in your life showed their appreciation for all your hard work! UNESCO’s theme this year is Teaching in Freedom, Empowering Teachers and to help celebrate the day we visited a few schools and talked to students about why they think their teachers are so great.
You can check out the video on our website. In the next issue of Buzz we’ll be reporting back on the CEASA World Teachers Day Awards and the Adelaide Oval RoofClimb which our lucky competition winners experienced.
