Teachers are being celebrated for a second time this month.
World Teacher's Day was on October 5 and was the perfect chance to let your teacher know you thought the world of them.
New Zealand Educational Institute Te Riu Roa spokesman Chris Stuart says World Teachers' Day was all about recognising the role and the passion teachers have for making learning exciting and guiding a student's quest for knowledge.
Mr Stuart says the union feels it is important to acknowledge the day and is holding a celebration tomorrow.
"Teachers shape the future of our children and young people by encouraging them to have inquiring minds, resilience, and confidence to be the best they can be," he says.
He says it is an opportunity to celebrate the complex role of balancing the academic, social and emotional needs of students to bring out the best in them.
Mt Roskill Primary School will host people from schools and early childhood education centres from throughout Auckland.
There will be displays of students' work to give people an insight into what teachers are doing in classrooms.
From 10am to 2pm there will be performances from school cultural and choir groups, with activities including face painting, a bouncy castle and the chance to make a card for a teacher.
Parent groups will be fundraising by selling food and drinks.
Parking is available on the field for a small charge.
