Public Education Awards Recognising excellence

Credit Union SA is the proud Event Partner for the 2019 Public Education Awards and sponsor of the Primary Teacher of the Year Award.

The Public Education Awards recognise and reward the achievements of teachers, leaders, allied health professionals, support and corporate staff across South Australia.

An educator’s influence continues beyond the classroom and supports children and young people to reach their full potential in life. We all remember a teacher who inspired and motivated us to enjoy learning, and the awards honour the dedication and passion of individuals who deliver the best possible outcomes for young people and their families.

The awards recognise and showcase excellence in public education. Through this program the Department for Education South Australia proudly share their achievements with the community and highlight the innovation, passion and expertise that form the foundation the strong public education system.

Parents, families and communities all play a significant role in supporting children and young people.  As active participants in the South Australian education system, the public nomination process for the awards allows everyone to get involved and say thank you to an educator that’s made a difference in their lives.
