Horizon Celebrates World Teacher's Day!

Posted on Oct 5, 2021

On 5 October every year, International Teachers’ Day or World Teachers’ Day is observed across the globe. The day is celebrated to highlight the key responsibilities, rights and value of teachers, along with considering issues related to teachers and teaching.

As the name suggests, the day is celebrated to honour teachers all around the world for their role in the economic development of their countries, as they are the sole reason for providing education to the society that enhances people’s quality of life. This special day is marked with zeal in more than 100 nations, including the United States, Canada, India, Australia, and the Philippines.


This year the theme of World Teachers’ Day is ‘Teachers at the Heart of Education Recovery.’ This theme recognizes teachers for their tireless efforts even during times like COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns. Due to their hardworking nature, teachers are known to help young children grow and learn, even in shaping the future generation.

This special day is dedicated to them every year so that we all can thank them for all that they have done. Horizon School Division celebrates all our educators!
