Celebrating Banana's tireless educators

TOMORROW marks an international day of celebration for one of the most important professions.

Established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), World Teachers' Day recognises the invaluable contribution that educators make to our society.

Custodians of our future leaders, innovators and influencers, teachers empower and inspire our youth to fulfil their potential.

Today is an opportunity to stop and thank Queensland teachers for the role they play both inside our classrooms and out in the community.

Flynn MP Ken O'Dowd encouraged students across the region to take part.

"Teachers and school leaders play a critical role in the lives of our kids,”

Mr O'Dowd said.

"Everyone can remember the teachers who had the biggest impact on their own education.

"On World Teachers' Day we pay tribute to every teacher and the passion they bring to their important job.

"In Flynn, there are amazing teachers working across our 126 state, Catholic and Independent schools,” he said.

"Our hard-working local teachers deserve our thanks every day, but today we are reminded just how much they mean to our community.”
