Friday 29 October
Australia will celebrate and thank the teaching profession on World Teachers’ Day on Friday 29 October 2021. Teachers (with support from parents and carers) have ensured education continues across the country this year, despite the major challenges of COVID. It’s reinforced the significant role teachers play in the lives of children and students, their families, and communities.
On Friday 29 October, you can say a big thank you to your teacher by posting a photo in your sunglasses on Twitter or Facebook, either on your own or with family or friends. Use these tags: #BrightFuture @aitsl
1. Thank you note/drawing
A short note, email or drawing from you or your child will be sure to make any teacher smile. Try thinking of something the teacher might have done recently to make it more personal.
2. Personalised card
Check out the badge templates in the Celebration Kit. Print out and create a badge for the day.
4. Small gift ideas
Chocolates, tea, a coffee voucher or even a packet of native plant seeds are popular small gifts for teachers. Use the gift tags in the Celebration Kit to add a personal touch.
5. Show your support on social
The Celebration Kit has graphics for Facebook and Twitter. Tag other parents/carers online and encourage them to show their support.
6. Share with other parents/carers, friends and colleagues
Spread the word either in person or on social media. Use the posters in the Celebration Kit to promote the day in your office, or if you’re working remotely, use the World Teachers’ Day virtual meeting background in the lead-up to World Teachers’ Day.
