Queensland’s state schools, teachers and principals are being urged to put their hands up as high achievers for the state’s annual education excellence awards.
Nominations are now open for the annual Showcase Awards for Excellence in Schools, recognising the educators and schools making an inspirational difference in their students’ lives.
The 10 award categories showcase a wide range of excellence in teaching practice from the earliest years through to senior levels. The QTU sponsors one of the awards, the Queensland Teachers’ Union Showcase Award for Excellence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education.
Award-winning teachers, principals, leadership teams and school communities share in $314,000 of grants to support innovation.
Education Minister Grace Grace said: “As Education Minister I have seen some amazing entrants and winners over the years and I look forward to seeing more examples of excellent teaching and leadership practices in 2021.”
Nominations close on 7 May. Regional award winners will be announced in June, state finalists in August, and overall state winners on World Teachers’ Day on 29 October.
