Senator Sarah Henderson has paid tribute to the teachers working in Victorian schools on World Teachers’ Day today (25 October 2019).

“On World Teachers’ Day we celebrate the teachers who made a difference in our life as well as the teachers who are educating Australia’s children,” Senator Henderson said.

“The best thing that we can do to improve outcomes in education is attract the best possible people to the teaching profession, train them to be the best possible teachers and support them to teach effectively and to continue to improve.

“Teachers are the lifeblood of school communities and play an important role in educating our children.

“I have seen firsthand the passion, knowledge and commitment of the teachers working in schools in Victoria.

“Our local teachers are a credit to themselves, their schools and our community and today we salute our teachers and the work they do.”
