World Teachers Day 2018
Teachers at Guides Night
Happy World Teacher’s day to all our school teachers.
The Delacombe Junior Girl Guides acknowledge this special day every year with a “Teachers at Guides Night”. For the 12th year, the girls have invited their school teachers along to participate in an evening of Guide activities.
It takes a dedicated teacher to voluntarily spend non-school hours with their students. This year, teachers attended from:
- Mount Clear P.S.
- Urquhart Park P.S.
- Phoenix Community College
- Forest Street P.S.
- Ballarat Grammar
- Buninyong P.S.
- Delacombe P.S.
The Guides and their teachers spent the night enjoying subject-related activities, specifically:
- ART – making a uniform sash and badges for their teachers and pinning on a special “World Teacher Day” badge
- LIBRARY – making owl bookmarks and completing a WordFind relating to childrens’ books
- LOTE – communicating via semaphore
- SCIENCE – launching bottle rockets
They were even given a report card !!
In previous weeks, the Guides had baked shortbread biscuits and created gift baskets which were presented at the event.
Teachers Day is acknowledged world-wide and is celebrated in Australia each year on the last Friday in October.
