LAST CHANCE: vote for South Burnett's top five best teachers

NATIONAL Teachers Day is this coming Friday (October 25), and we're on the hunt for the South Burnett's best teacher.

We did a call out on our Facebook page just last week and were overwhelmed by the heart-warming responses from South Burnett locals.

Since then we have had a poll open for 24 hours where you were able to vote for your favourite teacher, out of the top seven.

We have now narrowed it down to our top five teachers. This poll will close at 10am tomorrow morning(Wednesday, October 23).

Vote for who you think should be crowned 'South Burnett's Best Teacher' in the poll below:
