Teacher Aide Day celebrates special role in local schools

04 September 2015

Local schools are today celebrating Teacher Aide Day, which recognises the very special contributions teacher aides make in our classrooms.

State Member for Morayfield, Mark Ryan MP, today acknowledged the great work of teacher aides in our local schools.

“Teacher Aide Day is an opportunity for schools, teachers and students to show their appreciation for the vital work teacher aides perform in our local classrooms every day.

“Our teacher aides play a very important role in teaching and learning.

“They work closely with teachers to develop resources, support students’ learning and assist with practical duties in the classroom and throughout the school.

“They bring a wide range of skills to their work and have a very positive impact on the lives of their students.”

Mr Ryan said local schools marked this special day by making presentations on parade, or holding a morning tea or lunch to say thank you.

“I would like to personally thank each of our school teacher aides for their hard work and commitment to supporting the education of our young people,” he said.

“Teacher Aides are fantastic and should be valued for the important role they play in helping our kids to get the best possible education and start in life.”
