Australia will celebrate and thank the teaching profession on World Teachers’ Day on Friday 29 October 2021.

Posted on 13 Oct 2021

Teachers (with support from parents and carers) have ensured education continues across the country this year, despite major challenges. It’s reinforced the significant role teachers play in the lives of children and students, their families, and communities.

World Teachers’ Day is held internationally in early October. As it falls during the school holidays for many parts of Australia, we celebrate a little later.

Make sure you have Friday 29 October in your diary to celebrate and thank the amazing teachers here at Latham Primary School!
