10 Essential Gifts for Teachers

On Wednesday, 5 October 2022, we’re celebrating our educationists on World Teacher’s Day! PNA encourages scholars and parents to gift their teachers with any of the below 10-must haves for teachers, whether they’re starting their teaching career in 2023 or have been in the game for ages.

Why celebrate Teacher’s Day?

It’s to raise awareness of the importance these individuals play worldwide. They basically dedicate their lives and often for meagre salaries, to make an impact on how our children grow and turn into the next generation of adults.

Their jobs aren’t easy, and taking responsibility for educating future generations should be honoured, not only on Teacher’s Day, but throughout the year.

What to gift teachers?

It can be super fun and pretty simple such as saying ‘thank you’ with a DIY card or a small gift. The particular school or parent community could throw a party for these excellent teachers and offer gifts based on this year’s theme, ‘Teachers at the heart of education recovery’.

If you want to contribute in another way, you are welcome to donate to an educational organisation, specifically to those teachers working in underprivileged areas. You are probably aware of PNA’s partnership with Breadline Africa, a non-profit organisation that provides infrastructure and educational support to schools in disadvantaged South African communities.

Yes, our Funky Socks Day might be completed for this year, but donations are still very welcome, and they would genuinely appreciate it, without a doubt!
