World Teachers Day, officially recognized by the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural
Organrzatron (LNESCO) is commemorated annually on October 5th. This year the theme is: ‘Young
Teachers: The Future of the Profession’.
According to UNESCO, the day provides the occasion to celebrate the teaching profession worldwide, to take stock of achievements, and to address some of the issues central to attracting and keeping the brightest minds and young talents in the profession.
To commemorate the day, the St. Kitts Nevis National Commission for UNESCO hereby solicits your
assistance as media practitioners by giving recognition to our Teachers across the Federation and around the world as part of your programming.
This may be done by:
1. Advertising Teachers’ Week activities organized by the SKTU.
2. Discussing this year’s theme ‘Young Teachers: The Future of the Profession’
3. Highlighting the need to empower Teachers through well-resourced education systems.
We thank you for your kind consideration in addressing our requests and we look forward to future
collaboration with you.
