World Teachers Day

On Friday 27 October, schools around Australia will celebrate World Teachers Day. World Teachers Day is a time to acknowledge those who teach in our College and thank them for what they do. At St Peters, we will celebrate and recognise our teachers and staff with a special morning tea.

St Peters has been blessed with dedicated and committed teachers. Our students have been and are fortunate to have teachers who value: high quality learning outcomes; a values-based education; pastoral care that goes the extra mile; a sense of community; a sense of service; a commitment to valuing the learner as a whole person; and a desire to help children and young people grow and develop.

Teaching is truly a noble profession. Helen Caldicott, a well-known Australian physician once said, ‘Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth.’ Teachers have the capacity to touch and change the lives of young people for the better, not only for today, but for the rest of their lives.

At St Peters, we give thanks for our teachers and for all the gifts and talents that they bring to the College, and pray that they will continue to find satisfaction and meaning in the important work that they do.

Tim Kotzur, Head of College
