World Teachers' Day 2014
World Teachers' Day offers a chance to acknowledge our teachers and say thanks. Every day, Queensland teachers are making a difference educating and inspiring young Queenslanders.
World Teachers' Day, is celebrated in more than 100 countries world-wide and was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in 1994 to celebrate the role of teachers in society.
On Wednesday 15 October, the Plaza Ballroom at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre was packed with school girls and their teachers ready to be inspired by the stories, experiences and lessons from gust athletes Holly Ferling, Cate Campbell and Courtney Hancock.
Another highlight of the morning is announcing the winners of the Sporting Star Awards. 90 girls were recognized for excelling in their chosen sport. A full list of Sporting Star winners can be viewed on our Women in Sport Breakfast webpage.
