Students, parents, carers and the community are preparing to celebrate World Teacher’s Day on October 29, with the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) launching a new e-tool kit for download.
NESA Chief Executive Officer, Paul Martin, said across NSW 160,000 early childhood, primary and secondary teachers have continued to educate, inspire and support young people, as the state has dealt with a global pandemic.
“Thanks to the adaptability and professionalism of teachers, students have continued learning whether from home or the classroom.
“World Teacher’s Day gives us a chance to acknowledge their incredible work, and for students to share how their teachers have made a difference,” Martin said.
This year, schools and the community can download an e-toolkit to support them letting a teacher know how they have inspired and helped them in their learning.
The toolkit includes e-cards for student to send to their teachers, badges to add to social media profiles, a downloadable colouring-in page, tiles for Twitter posts, backgrounds for Teams/Zoom meetings, as well as screensavers and digital display screens.
A digital card means students can join the celebration, even if they are learning from home.
Students, school staff and families can share cards, tell their teacher how they have helped or inspired them and share their favorite learning experiences over Zoom, their Google classroom or on social media.
The e-toolkit can be downloaded from the NESA website.
