World Teachers’ Day, October 5th

In 1994, UNESCO inaugurated October 5 as World Teachers’ Day to commemorate the joint UNESCO and International Labour Organization’s (ILO) signing of the Recommendations Concerning the Status of Teachers.
World Teachers’ Day represents a significant token of the awareness, understanding and appreciation displayed for the vital contribution that teachers make to education and development. On October 5, along with over 100 countries around the world, the Canadian Teachers’ Federation and its Member organizations across the country celebrate World Teachers’ Day through a public awareness campaign that highlights the contributions of the teaching profession.
On Thursday, October 5th, as in previous years, your STA will be hosting multiple events at various locations. We had great success last year with TWO; now we’re aiming for FOUR! Appies will be provided, and your 1st drink is on us! There will be prizes & giveaways. Stay tuned for more details to come.
Great article that appeared in the BCTF News Mag a few years ago that’s worth reading again!
