World Teachers' Day - Friday, Oct 30

posted 23 Oct 2015, 13:14 by Jacqueline Somosi   [ updated 23 Oct 2015, 13:15 ]
Encourage your child to show appreciation for his or her teacher on Friday, October 30! The first World Teachers' Day was on 5 October 1994 and established by UNESCO (the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) to commemorate its signing with the International Labour Organisation of a recommendation on the status of teachers, that recognised the important role teachers play in society.

While internationally the day is celebrated each year on October 5, we mark it on October 30 in Australia, due to it otherwise usually falling during school holidays.
