In Lee Hsien Loong's Facebook, he says:

Teachers’ Day today is the first that preschool teachers and early educators get to celebrate. It is an overdue show of our appreciation, but one well deserved. Happy Teachers’ Day, and I hope you have a good break!

1.
Is 'preschool teachers and early educators get to celebrate' an appositive to 'the first'?
Or is it an adjective clause modifying 'the first'?

2.
I wonder whether I should use 'the' in 'In Lee Hsien Loong's Facebook', ie 'In the Lee Hsien Loong's Facebook'.

Would you be so kind as to help me?
Thanks!

PS I also posted the same question on this, but all of your answers are unique to me. Hope we can discuss with each other. Thank you.

I think the red part below is an appositive to 'Teachers' Day today'.
