World Teachers’ Day 

Australia celebrates World Teachers’ Day on October 29th.

10 easy ways to thank a teacher on World Teachers’ Day

The ideas below, together with our free downloadable World Teachers’ Day Celebration Kit (ZIP 20MB), make it super easy for you (or your child) to thank a teacher.

1. Thank you note/drawing

A short note, email or drawing from you or your child will be sure to make any teacher smile. Try thinking of something the teacher might have done recently to make it more personal.

2. Personalised card

A personalised card/digital card is another easy and thoughtful way to say thanks. The Celebration Kit includes World Teachers’ Day thank you cards to decorate and add your note to.

3. Badges

Check out the badge templates in the Celebration Kit. Print out and create a badge for the day. Or if your child is learning remotely, use them as virtual stickers to copy into the online learning space for a virtual and easy thank you on the day.

4. Small gift ideas

Chocolates, tea, or even a packet of native plant seeds are popular small gifts for teachers. Use the gift tags in the Celebration Kit to add a personal touch. If your school’s teachers are teaching remotely, maybe a coffee voucher from a local business (it will help the local business too).

5. Get involved with school celebrations

Ask the school leadership team or other parents/carers if there’s anything being planned for the day. You might be able to help organise a morning tea, or some thank you messages for teachers. Or perhaps propose some ideas if nothing is planned.

6. Show your support on social

The Celebration Kit has graphics for Facebook and Twitter. Tag other parents/carers online and encourage them to show their support.

7. Share with other parents/carers, friends and colleagues

Spread the word either in person or on social media. Use the posters in the Celebration Kit to promote the day in your office, or if you’re working remotely, use the World Teachers’ Day virtual meeting background in the lead-up to World Teachers’ Day.

8. Post a photo in your sunglasses

Thank teachers by posting a photo in your sunglasses using #BrightFuture and @aitsl. The Celebration Kit includes fun sunglasses templates you can make with your kids or visit from 14 October for our virtual photo booth. We’ll even provide the mask and sunglasses as props in the booth!

9. Give a virtual ‘happy’ apple

We’re aiming to share a million virtual apples with teachers to let them know they’re appreciated. Visit from 14 October to add some virtual apples to our collection as a super easy way to say thanks.

10. Join the celebrations on the day

Join the celebrations by saying thanks to teachers on the day. Tag and follow #BrightFuture and @aitsl if you post on Twitter or Facebook and you’ll be part of all the action.

The event is finished.
