Chance to recognise awesome teachers
TEACHERS would have to be themost important people in our children’s lives, apart from their parents.
Staff and students of Monto’s St Therese’s School recently celebrated International Teacher’s Day.
Teacher Blair Smith said he was happy his efforts as a teacher were being recognised.
“This day recognises the work teachers do outside class and how we build relationships with the children,” Mr Smith said.
Haille Pailthorpe, a 12-yearold student at the school, was full of praise for the work done by her teachers.
“It is awesome what they do,” Haillie said.
“They are helpful, encouraging and good with sports and activities.”
The day was also a chance for Prep children to gain some familiarity with the school before arriving for class next year.
