Independent Schools Queensland has urged the community to pay tribute to their local teachers tomorrow (October 26) when Queensland celebrates World Teachers’ Day - #WTDQLD2018.

ISQ Executive Director David Robertson thanked Queensland teachers for the valued work they perform in schools across the state.

“ISQ is proud to be part of a statewide campaign that acknowledges and celebrates the pivotal role of Queensland teachers,” he said.

“Every day teachers are creating opportunities, transforming lives and empowering minds.”

“I’d particularly like to thank the 10,000 teachers working in Queensland’s more than 200 independent schools.”

“Their dedication and passion for their work is what makes the biggest difference to student learning.”

Mr Robertson congratulated the 27 finalists in the Queensland College of Teachers 2018 Excellence in Teaching Awards, particularly the five independent school teachers, on their success and wished them well at the awards presentation today (Thursday 25 October).

“These men and women are ambassadors for their profession and champions of student learning.”

Queensland Independent Schools Parents Network Executive Officer Sue Kloeden extended her heartfelt thanks to all Queensland teachers for their commitment and care.

“World Teachers’ Day gives us the opportunity to thank and celebrate the remarkable teachers who are educating, encouraging and inspiring our children,” Ms Kloeden said.

“The role of the teacher has become much more challenging as family structures, working patterns and societal expectations change. The interests of children are best served when parents and teachers work together in respectful partnership,” she said.

“I encourage all parents and students to show their appreciation for the valuable work of teachers on Friday 26 October 2018.”

“Those two simple words – thank you – can make such a difference to a teacher’s day. Whether it’s in person, in a note or via email, let’s all take the time to express our gratitude for the gift of learning our teachers give our children every day.”

ISQ is part of a cross-sector World Teachers’ Day campaign, led by the Queensland Government, to acknowledge and promote the contribution of teachers. Other partners include the Queensland College of Teachers, Queensland Catholic Education Commission, the Independent Education Union and the Queensland Teachers’ Union.

Teachers, parents and caregivers are encouraged to visit the dedicated World Teachers’ Day website to download and share the campaign resources, which include certificates of appreciation.
