Glenmore Park Teacher Recognised for Educational Excellence
Last month, NGS Super announced the winners of the 2019 NGS Super Scholarship Awards, recognising teachers and staff members in education who are actively working on their career development, while also contributing to the wider sector.
Since the Scholarship Awards were established nine years ago, the fund has given over $250,000 to members in the education sector.
Yvonne Terweeme from Bethany Catholic Primary School in Glenmore Park was one of six winners recognised. Yvonne will undertake a Stronger Smarter Leadership Program, where she will increase her leadership capabilities working towards her goal of incorporating Indigenous language into the programs and culture of her school.
The Judges’ Choice award winner, Yvonne said it was a dream come true to win the scholarship.
“Instilling High-Expectations Relationships will be vital to improving educational outcomes for school children, particularly for indigenous students.
“The Stronger Smarter Leadership course will equip me with valuable tools that I can pass on to my students as well as my colleagues and the wider community to ensure that everyone is able to get involved, unlock their confidence and work towards being their best selves.
“I’m really excited to share my learnings with our community and have already connected with indigenous education unit Jarara”.
“Every year, we are impressed by the calibre of applications we receive, and this year is no exception. From global citizenship programs to STEM skills development, to say we are excited about what this year’s winners have planned is an understatement” said Laura Wright, Chief Executive Officer of NGS Super.
“The Scholarship Awards are a way that we can give back to our members and say thanks to all the teachers and management staff that consistently go above and beyond to make a difference”, Ms Wright concluded.
