Chance to recog­nise awe­some teach­ers

Central and North Burnett Times - - SCHOOL NEWS -

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.
