Ghana joins global community to mark World Teachers’ Day

In 2023, World Teachers’ Day celebrations will focus on the theme “The teachers we need for the education we want: The global imperative to reverse the teacher shortage”. 

The ceremony will be opened by UNESCO’s Director-General, followed by messages from the three co-convening agencies: the International Labour Organization (ILO), UNICEF, and Education International. 

As part of the celebrations, UNESCO will inaugurate an original photo exhibition featuring teachers from across the globe. This exhibition will showcase portraits and testimonials, recognizing their dedication, passion, and commitment to shaping the future. It will also highlight UNESCO’s work on teachers. It will be on display outside UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, from late September to mid-October. 

Ghana joined the global community on Thursday, October 5, 2023, in commemorating the day, dedicated to acknowledging and appreciating the invaluable contributions of teachers to nations and the world.

In light of this, the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) is fervently calling on teachers across the country, spanning all levels of education, to actively engage in the festivities.

World Teachers’ Day is an occasion to honour and recognise the pivotal role teachers play in shaping the future of individuals and societies. Ghana, like many nations, is preparing to pay homage to its educators on this auspicious day.

The General Secretary of GNAT, Thomas Musah, underscored the significance of teachers’ contributions and urged educators nationwide to wholeheartedly participate in the celebrations.

Mr. Musah emphasized the importance of acknowledging teachers’ tireless efforts in nurturing the minds of the youth and their role in nation-building.

Moreover, Mr Musah shared a promising development, revealing that the government has committed to resolving the long-standing issue of GHC44.55 deductions from teachers’ salaries.
