Excellent teachers soon to be named

5 October 2006

In recognition of World Teacher’s Day

Excellent teachers soon to be named

Final results for the ASG National Excellence in Teaching Awards (NEiTA) are being tabulated and six national recipients will be named later this month.

Pat Lynch, convenor of the selection panel and member of the NEiTA advisory council, says the high quality and large number of entries in the current round of NEiTA indicates the interest parents and secondary students have in teaching.

“World Teacher’s Day comes at a time when young people are preparing for their final school exams and considering their career choices.

“By honouring excellent teachers and raising the status of teaching in the community, we are showing talented young people that teaching is one profession that enables them to make a real difference in the lives of the young students they in turn will teach,” said Pat Lynch.

The six national recipients to be named later this month will comprise two teachers from the early childhood sector, two from primary/intermediate and two from secondary. Three of these teachers will receive ASG Professional Development Grants, one of $5,000 and two of $2,500.
