Clearview Celebrates and Recognizes World Teachers’ Day - October 5, 2016
On October 5, along with over 100 countries around the world, the Canadian Teachers’ Federation and its Member organizations across the country celebrate World Teachers’ Day through a public awareness campaign that highlights the contributions of the teaching profession.
World Teachers’ Day represents a significant token of the awareness, understanding and appreciation displayed for the vital contribution that teachers make to education and development.
“Teachers are the heart of public education. We believe in and support our quality, creative staff who work to ensure the success of every student. We recognize and value our dedicated teachers on World Teachers’ Day and throughout the year,” said Superintendent Peter Barron.
In 1994, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) inaugurated October 5th as World Teachers’ Day to commemorate the joint UNESCO and International Labour Organization’s (ILO) signing of the Recommendations Concerning the Status of Teachers.
“We have a great staff of teachers in Clearview who are devoted to their profession and their students. Our teachers believe that all students have value and enormous potential,” said Deputy Superintendent Brenda MacDonald.
