STAFF at schools in Butler, Darch and Greenwood are finalists in this year’s WA Education Awards.

The annual awards recognise outstanding public school staff across the state.

Butler College’s Armando Giglia is a finalist for secondary principal of the year and Ashdale Secondary College teachers Ashley Wright and Deborah Yates are nominated for the beginning teacher of the year award.

Maria Dunne, of Butler College, and Greenwood College’s Linda Tulip are among four finalists for education assistant of the year.

Education Minister Sue Ellery said it was a great way to celebrate the difference educators made to students’ lives.

“By continually providing a high-quality education, they are empowering young people to become confident, resilient and well-rounded individuals who have the opportunity to achieve success in their adult lives,” she said.

“It goes to show that, because of these outstanding educators, students in WA are provided with a high-quality education – whatever their ability, wherever they live and whatever their background.”

Winners will be announced on November 24.
