World Teacher’s Day: Celebrated in Australia Friday 30 October 28 Oct 2015

This year’s theme celebrating teachers is ‘empowering teachers, building sustainable societies’. 

It is recognized that teachers are not only a means to implementing education goals, they are the key to sustainability and national capacity in achieving learning and creating societies based on knowledge, values and ethics. These words from the WTD site remind us of why education is so important. The best schools are those that enable every student to achieve the greatest progress in learning, no matter where they start from. The best schools are filled with high quality teachers who know where their students are at and what they are ready to learn next. The Teacher Registration Board recognises your contribution as teachers and wishes you all the very best.
