World Teachers’ Day is held annually on 5 October to celebrate all teachers around the globe. It is a day to celebrate how teachers are transforming education but also to reflect on the support they need to fully deploy their talent and vocation, and to rethink the way ahead for the profession globally. It has been celebrated since 1994. This year the theme for World Teachers’ Day is “The transformation of education begins with teachers”. (Unesco.org, 2022)
In celebration of the World Teachers’ Day, Virlanie teachers devised an exercise that allows the children to pretend to be a teachers for a week. From Monday to Thursday, they designated a student to function as a teacher, and he or she is responsible for teaching his or her classmates. Aside from presenting a lesson, there’s also an activity where students apply what they learned into practice, such as buying and selling in the market with paper money, the egg drop challenge, the historical quiz bee, and many more.
Congratulations mga bata, job well done! Ang huhusay ninyong lahat sa pagganap bilang guro. Binigay niyo ang lahat ng inyong makakaya, galing at husay upang magsilbing guro sa inyong mga kapwa bata sa loob ng isang linggo. Nawa’y mas madami pa tayong pagkakataon para makagawa ulit natin ang ganitong activity para lahat kayo magkaroon ng pagkakataon gumanap bilang isang guro.” – Teacher Joyce (Event Head Facilitator)
We salute to all Teachers! All their hard work, efforts and care to the children are much appreciated!
