World Teachers Day 2012


World Teachers Day 2012 CakeCelebrated in over 100 countries, World Teachers' Day acknowledges the efforts of teachers in an increasingly complex, multicultural and technological society. It is a day on which students, parents and community members can demonstrate their appreciation for the contributions that teachers have made to their community.

Internationally it is celebrated on 5 October, but in Australia it is celebrated on the last Friday in October.

On 26 October, the P&C with the help of some Year 10 parents, hosted a morning tea for our teachers to thank them for their contribution to our children's education.The teachers appreciated the thanks and enjoyed the sumptuous morning tea prepared by the school canteen.

“Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.”

For the Chatswood High teachers - let's remember these words:
“I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well”
― Alexander the Great

To all the wonderful teachers at CHS. Thank you for your dedication, your professionalism, your friendliness and your encouragement. Most of all - thank you for becoming a teacher and choosing to work at Chatswood High School.

Heartfelt thanks to all teachers and staff for giving our Year 12 son a wonderful secondary education. The formal learning was excellent giving him a love of subjects which are shaping his tertiary choices. However, the milieu that CHS provides has given him great joy (though he would never express it!), wonderful role models and the foundations to be a good citizen. We THANK YOU!
