Awards help schools reflect
NEWTON Moore Senior High School science and engineering teacher Jade Warrington has encouraged South West schools to take part in the 2018 Governor’s School STEM Awards, which officially opened this week.
The awards are championed by the Governor of Western Australia Kim Beazley and recognise schools which demonstrate excellence in leadership, advocacy, engagement and achievements in STEM subjects.
Newton Moore won the award in 2016 and Miss Warrington said submitting an application was a “great self reflection tool”.
“It is a really good opportunity to promote the good things the staff, students and the wider community are doing with STEM,” she said.
“It’s about trying to get everyone involved, promote awareness and even sometimes break stereotypes.”
Finalists will be celebrated at a ceremony at Government House, winners and runners-up will be gifted a visit to Scitech and prizes of up to $2000 will be awarded.
