Member for Longman Terry Young has encouraged local students and school communities to thank and acknowledge the hard work of our teachers and celebrate World Teachers’ Day in Australia.
Mr Young said teachers and school leaders played a critical role in the lives of our kids, and it was more evident than ever this year.
“Teachers and school leaders have a challenging job at the best of times, but the ongoing risks and challenges posed by COVID-19 are exceptional, and I continue to be impressed by how Longman’s teachers are responding,” Mr Young said.
“Teachers have continued to support our students throughout this pandemic, and we owe them a great deal of gratitude for their work.
“On World Teachers’ Day we pay tribute to every teacher and the hard work and passion they continue to bring to their important job.
“As we approach the end of what has been a difficult school year, I thank each of the teachers across the electorate for the role they have played in helping schools continue to deliver a world-class education to our students in these challenging times.
“Our local teachers deserve our thanks every day, but on World Teachers’ Day I especially encourage students, parents, families and communities across Australia to say a special thank you to their teachers.”
World Teachers’ Day is being celebrated in Australia on Friday 30 October 2020.
