Celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide, World Teachers' Day was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in 1994 to recognise the role of teachers in society. 

World Teachers' Day is held internationally on 5 October. As the day usually falls during the Australian school holidays, Queensland celebrates on the last Friday in October.
