The Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA) is celebrating World Teachers’ Day, Saturday, October 5.
The association says it is delighted to join with the rest of the world in celebrating the Silver Anniversary of World Teachers’ Day.
Each year on October 5, the world pauses to acknowledge and applaud the sterling contribution of educators and institutions for providing a solid foundation on which to build a sustainable future for generations yet unborn.
In a message marking the Day, JTA President Owen Speid said:
“Teachers worldwide have the enviable task of shaping minds and creating a global village where peace and harmony will prevail. Let us continue to play our part in establishing institutions of excellence which enable the nation’s children to express themselves freely while seeking to solve some of the world’s problems.”
