World Teachers' Day celebrates the essential role of teachers in providing quality education. It aims to mobilise
support for teachers and to ensure that the needs of future generations will continue to be met by teachers.
The theme of this year's World Teachers' Day is 'Recovery begins with teachers' and pays homage to all teachers
who have been directly or indirectly affected by a major crisis.
World Teachers' Day commemorates the anniversary of the signing in 1966 of the UNESCO/ILO (International Labour
Organisation) Recommendation Concerning the Status of Teachers. Internationally, World Teachers' Day is
celebrated on 5 October. However, as this usually falls during school holidays, Australia celebrates the day on the last
Friday in October of each year.
