School of Education Annual Awards Night
- Posted: 27th November 2012
The annual School of Education Supervising Teacher Awards Evening was held on Thursday the 22nd November 2012. This special event and highlight in our calendar, is an opportunity to recognise the outstanding support provided by schools and teachers to our pre-service teachers. The willingness of teachers to introduce pre-service teachers to the reality of day-to-day teaching is invaluable, and works to improve teacher quality in NSW.
Twelve teachers (please see list below), nominated by their student teachers were awarded an Outstanding Supervising Teacher Award, presented by Director General of Education NSW, Prof Michele Bruniges. Schools who participated in school-based research projects were presented with Outstanding Contribution to Research Awards, as acknowledgement of their valuable contributions.
The night was a huge success and we would like to thank all the Principals, Practicum Coordinators and Teachers who attended the event. If you are interested in hosting UNSW pre-service teachers in 2013, please contact the Professional Experience Coordinator, Nisha Vohra at email@example.com or (02) 9385 1950 .
