Time 12:00am - 12:00am

World Teachers’ Day in Australia is on Friday 29 October 2021, a bit later than the international day due to our school holidays. It’s a chance to celebrate teaching and for communities to thank teachers.

Celebrate the day by posting a photo in your sunglasses on social media, either on your own or with your colleagues. Be sure to use the hashtag #BrightFuture and tag @aitsl. You may want to use the fun virtual photo booth to take your photo, available at from 14 October.

Planning a World Teachers’ Day event?

You’ll find a free, downloadable Celebration Kit, plus ‘how-to’ guides for schools and parents/carers at Whether teaching in the classroom or remotely, the kit contains a range of useful resources including posters, newsletter and social media content, gift tags, thank you cards … even sunglasses templates!

From everyone at AITSL, we wish teachers across Australia a very happy World Teachers’ Day.
