Chris Whiting MP wants our “great local schools” to nominate for the 2018 Showcase Awards for Excellence in Schools.
Chris Whiting said a local school would get a part of the $619,000 funding pool if successful in one of the 11 categories for the prestigious awards.
“The Showcase Awards are an annual celebration of all that is great about state schooling,” said Chris Whiting
“The new stand-alone Indigenous Education category allows us to highlight the positive steps our schools are taking to improve Indigenous education outcomes.
“I’m sure this year’s award entries will also highlight many of the creative ways schools and school communities are using digital and virtual learning techniques to enhance education outcomes.”
Chris Whiting urged all state schools to celebrate their achievements by nominating for an award.
“The awards celebrate excellent teaching practices from the earliest years through to senior level, recognising improvement plans and progress and encourage a culture of learning and sharing among our schools,” Chris said.
Nominations will close on 18 May 2018.
Regional award winners and commendations will be announced in June, state finalists in July and the state award winners will be announced at a gala dinner in Brisbane on World Teachers’ Day on 26 October 2018.
