World Teacher’s Day!

Today is all about you!

World Teacher’s Day is celebrated on the 5th October every year, all around the world!

Why are teachers important?

We all know teachers don’t just teach. You support, nurture, and inspire our children. You play a vital role in shaping and developing children by pushing their limits and helping them strive for better. This is why we are celebrating you today!

Teacher’s Day has been observed all over the world since 1994 after the UNESCO Recommendation Concerning Teachers. It celebrates the marking of the “Teaching in Freedom” in 1996. This year’s theme is The Transformation of Education Begins with Teachers. Is your school celebrating?

According to UNESCO, the world needs 69 million teachers in order to achieve the goal of providing universal primary and secondary education by 2030. That’s a lot of teachers! Do you think this would be achievable? Let us know.

Why is world teachers’ day important?

  • The day honours you, the teaching profession, all around the world.
  • It highlights the current issues that are affecting teaching.
  • It applauds progress but also challenges stagnation.

Harrington Bates wants to celebrate you by providing you with direct access to health and wellbeing cover from the Smart Clinic when your school buys an insurance policy with us! We recognise that you spend so much time caring and supporting our children all year round, so now let us take care of you when you need it!
