About World Teachers’ Day
World Teachers’ Day is an opportunity to celebrate, acknowledge and thank educators for the important role they play inside our classrooms and in the community.

Celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide, World Teachers’ Day was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in 1994. It was established to commemorate the adoption of a special Recommendation that sets forth the rights and responsibilities of educators, as well as international standards for their learning and employment.

World Teachers’ Day is held internationally on the 5th of October. In South Australia, World Teachers’ Day will be commemorated on Friday the 29th of October 2021.
