World Teachers' Day - 2011
A Message From: Carmel Kerin, Presiding Member, Teachers Registration Board of SA - World Teachers’ Day 2011
World Teachers’ Day is celebrated in South Australia on Friday, 28 October 2011. World Teachers’ Day was introduced in 1994 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), to celebrate the significance of competent, qualified and motivated teachers as instrumental in shaping the futures of children, students and young people.
The Teachers Registration Board has adopted a theme of ‘celebrate teachers: diverse community; diverse profession,’ which has a meaning for everyone.
World Teachers’ Day is an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the significant contribution of over 36,400 registered teachers in developing children, students and young people’s knowledge and abilities through quality education and care practices.
The Board has provided posters for all education and care settings. The poster will also be published in the Adelaide Advertiser on 28 October 2011.
The Board encourages education and care communities to organise local events celebrating our diverse communities and teaching profession.
