World Teachers’ Day

World Teachers’ Day is an international day held annually on 5 October since 1994.
It commemorates the anniversary of the adoption of the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers.
This sets benchmarks regarding the rights and responsibilities of teachers and standards for their initial preparation and further education, recruitment, employment, and teaching and learning conditions.

In 2019, World Teachers’ Day will celebrate teachers with the theme, “Young Teachers: The future of the Profession.” The day provides the occasion to celebrate the teaching profession worldwide, to take stock of achievements, and to address some of the issues central for attracting and keeping the brightest minds and young talents in the profession.

Teachers all around the world celebrate teachers day in their different ways.

Mzansi Urban would like to wish all the educators a happy teachers day.

A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instil a love of learning. –Brad Henry
