Teachers' Day

28 Oct 2016

Teachers’ Day, “Valuing Teachers, Improving their Status”, is a day when we remember how teachers have devoted their time and commitment to help us become better people and quality citizens. It is a day for everyone to respect, acknowledge and share gratitude for the dedication of teachers, as well as to support teachers to continue to share their knowledge and expertise for building a better society.

Teachers are the backbone of quality education - good quality education begins with a  quality teacher resulting in improved student outcomes.

The Teacher Registration Board would like to acknowledge the outstanding and crucial work of teachers in a complex society. We hope to bring attention to the importance of supporting qualified teachers, promoting the profession and raising the status to reflect their role in influencing the future of our world.
