World Teachers' Day

Do you know a teacher who shines? We're celebrating World Teachers' Day. Nominate an outstanding teacher to say thanks! Image by Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Institute. Image displays a brown bird sitting on a apple branch with a caterpillar.
Let's celebrate the teachers that are empowering young people to be future leaders.

In a year when, more than ever, teachers have been heroes, we want to celebrate the outstanding teachers in our communities and say thank you for everything in the lead up to World Teachers’ Day on Friday 30 October 2020.

We appreciate the important role teachers play in making a positive difference in the lives of their students. We value the critical role of educators, in building confidence in students on both a personal and academic level and setting them up for a bright future.

Despite a period of major challenges and great uncertainty this year, teachers and educational staff made sure education continued across the country.

If you know an outstanding teacher, nominate them and share their story to go into the draw to win some great prizes for you and them!

Nominations close midnight Tuesday 27 October. T&C’s apply.

More about World Teachers' Day 

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.

World Teachers' Day is held internationally on 5 October. In Queensland World Teachers’ Day will be commemorated on Friday 30 October 2020.

World Teachers' Day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and thank teachers for the important role they play across our country —inside our classrooms and out in the community.

Nominate an outstanding teacher to say thank you!
