Awards recognise teaching excellence
Western Cape’s best to reap the rewards
THE TOP teachers in the Western Cape moved from behind their desks into the spotlight last night, when Education MEC Debbie Schäfer announced their names at the annual Provincial Teaching Awards.
A keynote event at Mutual Park in Pinelands, the awards are aimed at recognising excellence and high levels of professionalism in the province’s classroom, while also providing the education community with a chance to celebrate the achievements of outstanding teachers.
Schäfer welcome the opportunity to highlight the exceptional work from Western Cape teachers, saying that excellence should always be celebrated – “especially when it involves the teaching and development of our youth”.
