World Teachers' Day is an international day celebrated annually on October 5 to commemorate the work of teachers. It was established in 1994 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to coincide with the anniversary of the signing of the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers. This recommendation is a standard-setting instrument that addresses the status and situations of teachers around the world.

World Teachers' Day is celebrated in over 100 countries around the world. In many countries, teachers are given gifts, flowers, and other tokens of appreciation. There are also often special events and activities held to celebrate the day, such as teacher awards ceremonies, concerts, and educational forums.

Here are some ways to celebrate World Teachers' Day:

  • Write a thank-you note to your favourite teacher.

  • Donate to a teacher-related charity.

  • Volunteer your time at a local school.

  • Attend a teacher appreciation event.

  • Learn more about the work of teachers and the challenges they face.

World Teachers' Day is a day to celebrate the important role that teachers play in our society. It is a day to thank them for their hard work and dedication, and to show our appreciation for their commitment to education.

In India, World Teachers' Day is not celebrated on October 5. Instead, it is celebrated on September 5, which is the birth anniversary of Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the second President of India. Radhakrishnan was a great scholar and educationist, and he is considered to be one of the most influential figures in Indian education.
