World Teachers Day
World Teachers' Day is an opportunity to acknowledge our teachers and say thanks for the significant contributions they make in our classrooms and communities.
Celebrated in more than 100 countries world-wide, World Teachers' Day was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in 1994 to recognise the role of teachers in society.
The inspiring stories of Queensland teachers have been appearing in media across the state ahead of World Teachers’ Day on Friday 27 October. Six independent school teachers and leaders are among 21 finalists in the 2017 Queensland College of Teachers (QCT) Excellence in Teaching Awards.
The awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of inspiring teachers in four categories – beginning teachers, teaching excellence, leadership and outstanding career contribution. Independent Schools Queensland wishes the finalists well at the awards ceremony on World Teachers’ Day, 27 October.
