Happy Teacher's Day

Teacher's Days are intended to be special days for the appreciation of teachers. Some of them are holidays while others are celebrated during working days.

World Teacher’s Day is celebrated across the world on 5th October, with great verve and enthusiasm.

Ever since the importance of teachers has been recognized by UNESCO, by adopting the “Recommendation concerning the status of teachers”, World Teacher’s Day has been celebrated annually.

This includes celebrations to honor the teachers for their special contribution in a particular field area or the community in general.

In some countries, World Teacher’s Day is celebrated by organizing conferences focused on the importance of teachers and learning.

In many countries, extra training sessions for teachers, recruitment drives for the teaching profession (among university students or other suitably qualified professionals) and events to increase the profile of teachers and the role they play in the media, are undertaken.

In Malaysia, 16 May was chosen as "Hari Guru" because on the same day in 1956, the Federal Legislative Council of the Federation of Malaya endorsed the Razak Report, one of four reports of the Education Committee regarding education in Malaysia.

The document, known as the Razak Report after Tun Abdul Razak who was Education Minister at the time, became the basis of education in Malaysia ever since.

Although it is not an official school holiday, celebrations are usually held on May 16, or earlier, if it falls on a Saturday or Sunday.
