ISOBEL Bevis, from John Tonkin College, is a finalist in the WA Education Awards.

Mrs Bevis has been short-listed in the WA Aboriginal and Islander Education Officer of the Year category.

She has been at John Tonkin College since 2006 and worked closely with Aboriginal students.

“I enjoy building personal relationships with the students,” Mrs Bevis said.

“I take them to experience plays and support them in finding pathways to traineeships or university.”

Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery said the awards were a way for the community to celebrate top public educators and the difference they make to the lives of students every day.
