Australia celebrates World Teachers' Day 2019 Teaching

Friday 25 October

#brightfuture

Let’s celebrate the bright future of teaching across Australia!

World Teachers' Day is being celebrated in Australia on Friday 25 October. The day is a great opportunity for everyone to recognise and appreciate teachers and the important role they play in shaping the next generation.

This year, we are focusing on the #brightfuture of the profession including beginning teachers starting their career. We’re also celebrating the role experienced teachers play in both the classroom and supporting beginning teachers on their teaching journey.

It was a big hit in the 1980s^ and we all put them on when it’s bright outside. Now we’re asking you to don your sunglasses to show your support for the #brightfuture of teaching.

Take a selfie in your sunnies and post it on your social media using the hashtags #WorldTeachersDay and #brightfuture.
