Cel­e­brat­ing Ba­nana’s tire­less ed­u­ca­tors

Central Telegraph - - NEWS -

TO­DAY, Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 26, marks an in­ter­na­tional day of cel­e­bra­tion for one of the most im­por­tant pro­fes­sions.

Es­tab­lished by the United Na­tions Ed­u­ca­tional, Sci­en­tific and Cul­tural Or­gan­i­sa­tion (UNESCO), World Teach­ers’ Day recog­nises the in­valu­able con­tri­bu­tion that ed­u­ca­tors make to our so­ci­ety.

Cus­to­di­ans of our fu­ture lead­ers, in­no­va­tors and in­flu­encers, teach­ers em­power and in­spire our youth to ful­fil their po­ten­tial.

To­day is an op­por­tu­nity to stop and thank Queens­land teach­ers for the role they play both in­side our class­rooms and out in the com­mu­nity.

Flynn MP Ken O’Dowd en­cour­aged stu­dents across the re­gion to take part.

“Teach­ers and school lead­ers play a crit­i­cal role in the lives of our kids,” Mr O’Dowd said.

“Ev­ery­one can remember the teach­ers who had the big­gest im­pact on their own ed­u­ca­tion.

“In Flynn, there are amaz­ing teach­ers work­ing across our 126 state, Catholic and In­de­pen­dent schools,” he said.

“Our hard-work­ing lo­cal teach­ers de­serve our thanks ev­ery day, but to­day we are re­minded just how much they mean to our com­mu­nity.”
