Teach­ers are ‘heart and soul’

Southern Telegraph - - News -

As schools across Aus­tralia cel­e­brate World Teach­ers’ Day, Brand MLA MHR Gary Gray said the La­bor Party joins with par­ents, stu­dents and the broader com­mu­nity to thank all ed­u­ca­tors for their in­valu­able work.

“Each and ev­ery teacher should be recog­nised for their ded­i­ca­tion to giv­ing the chil­dren of Rock­ing­ham, Kwinana and Man­durah the bright­est fu­ture pos­si­ble,” he said.

“From early child­hood to school, vocational ed­u­ca­tion, and univer­sity, our hard-work­ing teach­ers are the heart and soul of Aus­tralia’s ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem.

“Ev­ery day teach­ers in­spire stu­dents and ev­ery day they change lives. Teach­ing can be a chal­leng­ing pro­fes­sion, but it is also in­cred­i­bly re­ward­ing.”

Mr Gray said teach­ers had the priv­i­lege and re­spon­si­bil­ity for shap­ing the next gen­er­a­tion.

He said gov­ern­ment and the com­mu­nity had a re­spon­si­bil­ity to re­spect and sup­port teach­ers in re­turn.
