Education Minister Grace Grace has joined teachers, students and parents in thanking teacher aides for the important role they play in the education of Queensland students.

“The first Friday in September is Teacher Aide Day,” Ms Grace said.

“This is a day to acknowledge the wonderful work of our teacher aides who play a crucial role in the education of our students.

“They work closely with teachers and students to provide a wide range of support, helping to lift education outcomes for all students, and often our most vulnerable.

“There are more than 19,000 teacher aides employed in our state schools, helping Queensland students get the very best from their education.

“With continued enrolment growth expected in Queensland state schools, it is more important than ever to recognise the significant role our teacher aides play in our schools."

Ms Grace said the Palaszczuk Government had fulfilled its commitment to boost teacher aide hours.

“We are providing an extra 4000 prep teacher aide hours per week – which allows all state schools to have a teacher aide in every prep class for the first time,” she said.

“I congratulate teacher aides across the state for the contributions they make to their schools and for the invaluable support they provide to the school community.”
