Queensland Turns the Spotlight on Teachers


Teachers’ role at the heart of learning will be celebrated across the state tomorrow (Friday, 25 October) when the community pays tribute to the profession on World Teachers’ Day.

Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ) Executive Director David Robertson thanked all Queensland teachers for the pivotal role they play in growing the knowledge, skills and confidence of their students (see video message).

“ISQ is proud to be part of a statewide campaign that acknowledges and celebrates the valuable work teachers perform every day in Queensland schools,” Mr Robertson said.

“I’d particularly like to thank the 10,000 teachers working in our more than 210 independent schools for their learning leadership, guidance, encouragement and care of their students,” he said.

“Teachers deserve our support and praise for their commitment to making a difference in the lives of their students and the contribution this legacy of learning makes to the prosperity of our state.”

Mr Robertson also congratulated the 30 Queensland teachers, particularly the nine from ISQ member schools, who are finalists in the Queensland College of Teachers 2019 TEACHX Awards and wished them well at the awards presentation in Brisbane tonight (Thursday 24 October).

“The teaching profession is comprised of some outstanding educators as showcased by these awards. These teachers like the Highly Accomplished and Lead Teachers ISQ recently celebrated, are excellent ambassadors for their profession.”

Queensland Independent Schools Parents Network Executive Officer Sue Kloeden extended her heartfelt thanks to Queensland teachers for the gift of learning they give students every day (see video message).

Ms Kloeden said the connection between teachers, their students and their families was crucial to student growth and success.

“I encourage all parents and students to show their appreciation for the valuable work of teachers tomorrow,” she said.

“A simple thank you – in person, by email or in a card – shows our children’s teachers that we respect, value and appreciate them and their work. Parents have such an important role to play in modelling to their children the values of respect and gratitude and how to show these to our teachers.”

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 Queensland website to download and share the campaign resources, which include certificates of appreciation.
