UNESCO World Teachers Day At King’s Square

October 3, 2016

The Mayor of St. George, Ms. Quinell Francis, will be hosting an event to commemorate UNESCO World Teachers Day in the King’s Square on Wednesday, 5th October 2016 at 11:00 am.

“UNESCO proclaimed 5th October to be World Teachers’ Day in 1994, celebrating the great step made for teachers on 5th October 1966, when a special intergovernmental conference convened by UNESCO in Paris adopted the UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers, in cooperation with the ILO,” a spokesperson said.

“This recommendation sets forth the rights and responsibilities of teachers as well as international standards for their initial preparation and further education, recruitment, employment, teaching and learning conditions.

“Since its adoption, the Recommendation has been considered an important set of guidelines to promote teachers’ status in the interest of quality education.

“5th October also celebrates the adoption by the UNESCO General Conference in 1997 of the UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Higher-Education Teaching Personnel.

“The CSG in conjunction with World Teachers Day will highlight our teachers and the important role that they play in the development of our children. During the event the Corporation will be honoring two past teachers, Mrs. Heather Foggo, previously of East End Primary and Mr. Phillip Spencer, previously of St. George’s Preparatory.

“The CSG welcomes all to come to King’s Square to help honour our teachers.”

    It is great to honor teachers. Too bad it is through the day as most teachers will be working and won’t be able to attend.
