Bluewater District School Board celebrates teaching excellence and the invaluable contributions of teachers in shaping the lives and supporting the growth and development of students on World Teachers’ Day.  Held annually on October 5, this occasion is just one opportunity for all of us, regardless of our age, to express our appreciation to the teachers, both present and past, who have made a lasting positive impact in our lives.

The 2021 theme for World Teachers’ Day, according to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is “Teachers at the heart of education recovery”.  As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we reflect on the many ways in which our teachers have shown tremendous resilience and professionalism in adapting and refining their learning strategies, to ensure no student is left behind.  With our recent physical return to school, those on the frontlines in our classrooms are not only supporting students in their learning, but also in their social and emotional well-being, health, and safety.

“On behalf of our trustees, I want to extend my sincerest thanks and appreciation to our Bluewater teachers, who continue to step up to the challenge every day to ensure a safe, accepting, and caring environment for our students.  Your leadership and compassion, especially during these times, have been so vitally important to student learning and success, and an inspiration to us all,” says Chair Jane Thomson.

“Thank you to all Bluewater teaching staff for the countless hours of hard work, amazing skill and expertise, and immeasurable dedication you bring to your vocation each day.  I speak for many in saying that our students are in the best possible hands as we work towards a gradual return to a more normalized school experience in our recovery from the impacts of the pandemic,” says Director of Education Lori Wilder.

Honour and celebrate World Teachers’ Day:
  • Personally thank a Bluewater teacher who has positively influenced and impacted you and/or your child.
  • Share on social media any current or past examples of amazing Bluewater teachers who have made a difference in your or your child’s life using the hashtag, #BluewaterWTD2021.
