Teach­ing a ‘team ef­fort’

Joondalup Weekender - - News -

CARINE High School prin­ci­pal Damien Shut­tle­worth is WA’s Sec­ondary Prin­ci­pal of the Year.

It was a big morn­ing for last year’s WA Sec­ondary School of the Year, with science teacher Daniel Hugo also named WA Pre­mier’s Sec­ondary Teacher of the Year.

Mr Shut­tle­worth, who be­came the school’s fourth prin­ci­pal in nearly 50 years when he joined in 2014, said the win felt very re­ward­ing.

“In­di­vid­u­als don’t win awards, com­mu­ni­ties do,” he said.

Head of science Mr Hugo agreed it was a team ef­fort.

“Teach­ing is such a priv­i­lege and to be ac­knowl­edged like this is fan­tas­tic,” he said.
