Teachers: Leading in crisis, re-imagining the future

 

Australia will celebrate and thank teachers on World Teachers’ Day on Friday 29 October 2021.

The theme of World Teachers’ Day 2021 is “Teachers: Leading in crisis, re-imagining the future”. The United Nations (UNESCO) presented this theme for teacher’s day in respect of their determined and diligent efforts in the crucial stages of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Teachers (with support from parents and carers) have ensured education continues across the country this year, despite major challenges. It’s reinforced the significant role teachers play in the lives of children and students, their families, and communities.


...recognizing teachers as key to the achievement of the Education 2030 agenda."
