Last July educators across the world, from Kidderminster to Kuala Lumpur, came together to celebrate teaching with #High5aTeacherDay. Taking place on the first Friday of every July, this palm-smacking, Twitter-based event serves to champion those working in the profession via the classiest method to hand. On Friday 7th July, people are encouraged to high-five a teacher and then send photo / video evidence to @InnovateMySchool, where the feat will be shared around the world.

This ‘Alternative World Teacher's Day’ will begin at 12am in Tonga, and we’re keen to ensure that people across the globe slap palms in recognition of teachers past, present and future. As assistant headteacher Jonny Walker put it: “Finally, a campaign I care about!”

To give you a taste of last year’s #High5aTeacherDay, here are some of the highlights:

On Friday 7th July, remember to tweet @InnovateMySchl with your photo or video and we’ll get sharing!
