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 highly skilled, dedicated and caring teachers provide dynamic inclusive educational experiences for students and focus on student achievement and well-being.
Nationally, the Canadian Teachers’ Federation  promotes World Teachers’ Day through a public awareness campaign that highlights the contributions of the teaching profession. The theme this year is Valuing teachers, improving their status.
Please join in recognizing World Teachers’ Day on Wednesday, October 5.
