Happy Chinese Teachers’ Day

祝教师节快乐!(Zhù Jiàoshījié kuàilè) Happy Teachers’ Day!

10th September is the Teachers’ Day in China. Let’s take this opportunity to wish all the teachers and would-be teachers a very special (no holiday, nor extra payment) and happy (only among ourselves) day!

On this day in China meetings and ceremonial events are often held to award star teachers who are considered role models and have made significant contributions to education at different levels. Pupils and students often give flowers and cards to their mentors to thank them for their influence on many young hearts and minds.
