Every day, Queensland teachers are making a difference educating and inspiring young people across our state.
World Teachers' Day is an opportunity to acknowledge our teachers and say thanks for the significant contributions they make in our classrooms and communities.
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. As the day usually falls during school holidays, Queensland celebrates on the last Friday of October each year.
In 2016, World Teachers' Day will be celebrated in Queensland on Friday 28 October, during State Education Week.
Please take a moment this week to thank the amazing teachers at Aspley East Kindy whose longstanding contribution and dedication to our kindy makes AEK the very special place that it is.
Grandparents Day is a chance for children and the community to thank grandparents for their love and support.
