WA public schools are urged to nominate inspiring staff members for this year’s WA Education Awards.

Nominations opened on April 1 and will close on May 31.

Categories include the WA Premier’s Primary Teacher of the Year, WA Premier’s Secondary Teacher of the Year, WA Primary Principal of the Year and WA Secondary Principal of the Year.

Community News is sponsoring the WA Secondary School of the Year award for the second year.

This award was won by Lynwood Senior High School last year.

Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery said the awards recognised the life-changing impact schools had on students across the state.

“I encourage WA public schools to nominate their innovative and inspiring staff who make a real difference every day to the lives of students,” she said.

“Principals, teachers and school staff play such an important and positive role in helping to shape the future of students and we are lucky to have such a high level of expertise in our classrooms.”
