BER­TRAM Pri­mary School is a fi­nal­ist in the 2018 Gov­er­nor’s School STEM Awards.

The awards cel­e­brate WA schools that demon­strate ex­cel­lence in lead­er­ship, ad­vo­cacy, en­gage­ment and achieve­ments in science, tech­nol­ogy, en­gi­neer­ing and math­e­mat­ics (Stem) ed­u­ca­tion.

The judges will visit the school fi­nal­ists next month, fol­lowed by an an­nounce­ment of the win­ners at an awards cer­e­mony at Gov­ern­ment House on Novem­ber 26.

Science Min­is­ter Dave Kelly said it was im­por­tant to recog­nise the com­mit­ment and en­gage­ment of prin­ci­pals and teach­ers in de­vel­op­ing the skills chil­dren will re­quire for the jobs of the fu­ture.

Ed­u­ca­tion and Train­ing Min­is­ter Sue Ellery said the generic skills stu­dents learn studying Stem sub­jects were trans­fer­able across in­dus­tries.
