World Teachers’ Day 2021

World Teachers’ Day 2021

Our teachers are making a difference to the lives of young people every day.

World Teachers’ Day 2021 is celebrated across Australia on Friday 29 October. It’s a chance to recognise and thank over 21,000 teachers who work in our public schools.

Despite the challenges of last year, teachers bring their best to work and continue to put their students first.

Teachers play an important role in our community and we thank them for their passion and dedication to inspire children and young people.

Lighting up WA

This year, we are partnering with the Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia, Catholic Education in Western Australia and Edith Cowan University to light up WA red and yellow.

Perth’s Matagarup Bridge, Optus Stadium and other Perth landmarks will be lit red and yellow on World Teachers’ Day to acknowledge and recognise teachers across Western Australia.
