Gold Coast teachers celebrated

GOLD Coast teachers are celebrated and recognised today as part of World Teacher’s Day.

The annual event promotes awareness and appreciation for the vital contribution teachers make to education and the development of students and communities.

Minister for Education,Christopher Pyne, said evidence shows teachers have the greatest in-school influence on a student’s engagement and achievement.


“Teachers make the most difference within schools, and quality teaching is critical to the future prosperity and productivity of young Australians,” he said.

“That is why it is so important that we celebrate the work our teachers do, and it is also why we are implementing practical and effective reforms at the national level to ensure real improvements in school education.”

World Teacher’s Day has been an annual event on teacher calendars since 1994.
