October 5 marked the 26th annual World Teachers’ Day. Designated by UNESCO in 1994 in recognition of educators across the globe, the event is now commemorated in more than 100 countries.
When announced, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization intended that the occasion not only recognize the contributions of teachers everywhere, but also established benchmarks for their rights and responsibilities.
Ultimately however, World Teachers’ Day is regarded by many as simply a great opportunity to express our gratitude to all those who have helped us become who we are.
At St. Clement’s School, we are fortunate to have some of the very best educators anywhere. On October 5 and throughout the rest of the year, St. Clement’s pays tribute to those who have helped prepare each and every one of us for today, and especially the SCS faculty who are so committed to helping prepare today’s Clementines for their futures.
