Dear Beaconhills teachers,

Today, Friday 30 October, is World Teachers’ Day – a day where we celebrate the work of our teachers and the bright future of our profession.

This year the date has profound significance, particularly for Victorian teachers. Amidst a global pandemic and its accompanying challenges, you have literally been the frontline workers in education.

As Beaconhills College teachers, you have met and exceeded every challenge thrown at you this year. We have delivered far more than a ‘click and collect’ version of education for our families. Your individual care and attention to our students and your adaptability to new systems at short notice has been outstanding. Whether you have taught on campus or off site, from arts to sport, performing arts to co-curricular, you have all found ways to adapt and teach successfully.

As we resume face-to-face teaching and our state emerges from lockdown, it’s worth noting that many schools across the world – the life of every community – are doing just the opposite. They face dark weeks and months ahead, with rising COVID-19 case numbers and the prospect, for many, of a long period of remote teaching.

So thank you for your contribution to the teaching profession and the education of our Beaconhills College students on World Teachers’ Day. You should be very proud of the work you do, as we continue to be shining lights in education – and pray for a brighter future.

An apple and a message of appreciation went in to every Beaconhills College teacher’s pigeonhole today.
