Friday October 30 is World Teachers’ Day in Australia, a time to thank the educators who play a vital role in helping to shape young people to become important contributors to society.
Carinity CEO Jon Campbell paid tribute to teachers and staff at Carinity’s schools five schools across Queensland – in Gladstone, Brisbane, Rockhampton, Hervey Bay and Townsville – for supporting almost 600 students statewide, in what has been a difficult year.
“Educators are the amongst the most important adults that young people will learn from in their formative years,” Jon says.
“We only need to think back to our own time at school and reflect on how our teachers greatly influenced our lives, as mentors, for their guidance and teachings, and possibly as an inspiration to become a teacher.
“Despite major challenges this year due to COVID-19, our education staff have made sure our young students have continued to receive their vital education.”
Youth Worker Sirayah Benjamin says Carinity Education Gladstone caters to all types of young people and “provides them with a successful path into the future”.
“Often we see students enter with a negative attitude towards their education due to their past experiences,” Sirayah says.
“Our goal is to support them through these challenges and provide them with the opportunity to succeed.”
