World Teachers’ Day

In 1994, UNESCO inaugurated October 5 as World Teachers’ Day to commemorate the joint UNESCO and International Labour Organization’s (ILO) signing of the Recommendations Concerning the Status of Teachers. World Teachers’ Day is celebrated in over 100 countries around the world and brings awareness, understanding and appreciation for the vital contributions teachers make to education and their community.

This year on October 5, Federation staff will be handing out apples at public locations in Saskatoon to get people thinking about the positive impact teachers have on our communities. We want everyone to #thankateacher for their contributions to education and their community. Teachers throughout the province are invited to help us expand this initiative provincewide. A press kit, templates and promotional items were mailed to each school and are also available in the related documents column of this page.

Not a teacher? No worries, you can still participate by following #thankateacher on Twitter and Facebook and by sharing and liking the posts. Hopefully we will see you at one of the apple stations in Saskatoon – locations will be announced on the STF Facebook and Twitter accounts. Stay tuned!
