World Teachers Day
On October 5 each year, teachers’ organisations worldwide mobilise to ensure that the needs of future generations are taken into consideration.
UNESCO inaugurated October 5 as World Teachers’ Day in 1993. This day represents the appreciation displayed for the vital contribution that teachers make to education and development. UNESCO estimates that 18 million more teachers are needed worldwide if universal primary education is to be achieved by 2015.
Since World Teachers Day is a Sunday I also wanted to thank the girls primary teachers (but we were at another ward for my niece's baby blessing) and also thank their school teachers tomorrow on the first day back at school after the holidays
Remember to thank the teachers in your life - they work hard!
