These annual awards give us the opportunity to come together and acknowledge the innovative and committed people in public education across the State.
This morning we saw the remarkable difference that our teachers – experienced and beginning – are making to the lives of their students.
We witnessed the leadership of principals, not just in their schools but also in the wider community.
We shared the range of contributions that school support staff are making in schools.
And we paid tribute to the best public schools in Western Australia.
Congratulations to all winners and finalists.
I would like to thank everyone involved in the awards for 2013, particularly our sponsors and judges, and all nominators. Your generous support helps us recognise the excellent work, dedication and passion of our staff in their endeavours to ensure students have the very best education.
I encourage you to read more their stories and achievements in School Matters.
