Each year on October 5 the teaching profession is celebrated around the world through World Teachers’ Day. This day of recognition began in 1994 through UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
In Canada, the national theme for World Teachers’ Day 2011 is "Teachers: inspiring students, awakening potential." This mirrors our commitment at Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board to provide the best possible programs and services to help each student reach their full potential.
We are fortunate to have dedicated and caring teaching staff throughout our district who are making a real difference in our students’ lives every day. Their professionalism and commitment to our students is valued and appreciated by all of our community.
Please join us in recognizing World Teachers’ Day!
