Central Okanagan Public Schools recognizes World Teachers’ Day

The work of teachers in Kelowna and around the region celebrated today on World Teachers' Day

Wednesday Oct. 5th is World Teachers Day.

In honour of World Teachers’ Day, the Central Okanagan Board of Education is pleased to recognize the contributions of the 1,550 teachers within the Central Okanagan School District.

The district says the dedicated group of professionals provides invaluable training, mentorship, and encouragement to over 22,000 students each day.

EXTRA: Kids see teaching as an act of kindness

EXTRA: Teachers from K to Grade 9 rolling out new curriculum

Since UNESCO launched World Teachers’ Day in 1994, October 5th provides an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the work of teachers.

Worldwide, there are more than 60 million teachers, the majority of them working in developing countries with limited resources.

As such, this day is also a reminder that the great strides in Canadian education are a result of the hard work of countless people working together over many years to create a brighter future for children.

Central Okanagan Public Schools encourages everyone in the community to recognize the indispensable, often challenging, task of teachers, not only on World Teachers’ Day, but every day.
