Because of our outstanding teachers, leaders and school support staff, students in Western Australia are provided with a high quality education – whatever their ability, wherever they live, whatever their background.

Coming from different backgrounds themselves, our staff bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to schools and classrooms. They are leaders in educational innovation and reform. Because they see the potential in every child, their priority is to enrich student learning and inspire students to achieve to the best of their ability.

Through the WA Education Awards, we thank our teachers, leaders and support staff for their role in making a difference in the lives of students in Western Australia.

Be a part of applauding and celebrating the very best of the best at your school.
