Celebrate Their Efforts

What better way to show your child's teacher your appreciation than by acknowledging their efforts on World Teachers' Day?

We have all heard the familiar dig at teacher's having so many holidays - but seriously would you change places with them? Imagine putting yourself in front of up to 30 pairs of inquisitive eyes, a class full of "But why?" and a constant barrage of "I can't find it!". It's enough to make me want to stick to my own job and recognise that these special people need all the recharge time they get!

World Teacher Day is celebrated in over 100 countries and aims to acknowledge the dedication, hard work and efforts of teachers in an ever increasingly complex society.

Internationally, WTO was celebrated earlier in October, but here in Australia it is being celebrated on October 31st.

Here are some suggestions for how you and your child can take part in World Teachers' Day:

Provide a morning tea for your teacher's staff room
Present each teacher with a small token of appreciation
Put together a 'Things I love about my teacher' picture book using the children's art, are make a little video for your teacher to keep.
Just say "Thank You"

The Qld College of Teachers has created a number of Certificates that you can download and print yourself. These are available a Or why not try making your own and personalising it with your favourite memories.

I am sure your teacher will love it!

Well said Grace! A little recognition for the time and effort they put into our children goes a long way.
