Australia will celebrate and thank the teaching profession on World Teachers’ Day – Friday 30 October.
Teachers (with support from parents and carers) have ensured education continues across the country this year, despite major challenges. It’s reinforced the significant role teachers play in the lives of children and students, their families and communities.
The Fremantle LDC Executive Leadership Team would like to say a huge thank you to all of our amazing teachers for their hard work, dedication and care of our students.
On Friday 30 October, please say a big thank you to teachers and celebrate the bright future of teaching.

The judging was very challenging but we have selected our winners and the list is below.
