On Friday, 25 October Australia celebrates World Teachers’ Day, an annual event since 1994 that commemorates the joint signing of the 1966 UNESCO/ ILO (International Labour Organisation) Recommendation Concerning the Status of Teachers. This week in Western Australia, the Professional Teaching Council of Western Australia Outstanding Service Awards (PTCWA) were announced.
