SA World Teacher's Day Awards

Celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide, World Teachers Day was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in 1994 to recognise the role of teachers in society. It is held internationally on 5 October.

On Friday 25 October, Educators SA, a community of 15 000 educators representing 59 educator professional associations, congratulated the best and finest in the education profession at the Educators SA World Teachers Day Celebration at the Grand Chancellor Hotel in Adelaide.  

More than 70 awards were presented to outstanding educators who were nominated by their peers as leaders in their profession. 

Congratulations go to Sharon Mann from Victor Harbor R-7 School for being recognised by the Indonesian Teachers Association of South Australia with the Gotong Royong (Working Together) Award for her achievements  regarding supporting Indonesian language teacher colleagues.

While it is nice to be acknowledged for all the work that she has put in, Sharon is quick to point out that she works as part of a team of highly dedicated Indonesian teachers on the South Coast; Annie Beach from Goolwa Primary School and Catherine Elliott from Port Elliot Primary School.  This award acknowledges the work undertaken by the team in organising two conferences that were held on the Fleurieu in 2017 and 2019, as well as presenting at many other conferences ourselves.
