A tradition for nearly 30 years, the Halton District School Board will recognize World Teachers’ Day on Wednesday, Oct. 5, as proclaimed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
The theme for this year’s World Teachers’ Day in Oakville, Burlington, Milton and Halton Hills is, “The transformation of education begins with teachers”.
“The Halton District School Board values and recognizes the incredible work, dedication and commitment our teachers have made to their students, families and profession,” said Curtis Ennis, director of Education for the Halton District School Board.
“Our teaching staff continue to show inspiring resilience, a strong sense of collaboration and incredible dedication to student learning during some of the most difficult situations we have seen in education, and beyond. Their commitment to providing safe and welcoming learning environments for students to learn, grow and inspire is seen, appreciated and valued beyond any words can describe.
“We thank crucial support teams that assist teachers in providing a respectful place of learning for all students, free from discrimination. As a board, we all remain committed to helping students continue their journey and joy of learning, prepared to provide an exceptional educational experience that is uplifting and fulfilling, and honours students’ unique and collective identities.”
World Teachers’ Day has been held on October 5 since 1994 to celebrate teachers around the world and commemorate the anniversary of signing the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers, which sets standards for the rights and responsibilities of teachers.
