World Teachers’ Day in Australia
On the last Friday of October every year*, Australia celebrates World Teachers’ Day. This is a little later than the international date of 5 October due the school holidays in Australia.
In 2021 Australia celebrated the bright future of teaching on social media and grabbed 645,449 virtual apples. That’s almost twice as many as the 337,307 teachers across the country. Schools celebrated big time too – with some incredible festivities, messages from students and plenty of #BrightFuture sunglasses selfies. Check out the 2021 action.
Save the date – Friday 28 October 2022
