Join in recognizing World Teachers’ Day, October 5, 2015
Message from Mandy Savery-Whiteway, Director of Education
The teaching profession is celebrated around the world through World Teachers’ Day on October 5 each year. This day of recognition began in 1994 through UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
Achieving Excellence & Equity, Learning & Leadership, Public Confidence and Well-Being are priorities in the 2015-2020 Strategic Plan, supported through Growing with Character. Every day at Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board, our dedicated and caring teaching staff make a difference in students’ lives. Their professionalism and commitment to student achievement and well-being are valued and appreciated.
Nationally, the Canadian Teachers’ Federation promotes World Teachers’ Day through a public awareness campaign that highlights the contributions of the teaching profession.
Please join in recognizing World Teachers’ Day on Monday, October 5.
