Warwick SHS program judged top of the class
WARWICK Senior High School has been nationally recognised for its focus on science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
The school received the Best STEM Program prize at the 2018 Australian Education Awards last Friday and was one of only two WA schools to be named among the 160 finalists.
The award comes just weeks after four Warwick staff members were announced as finalists in the WA Education Awards; three work in the STEAM education program, which also includes arts in the STEM focus.
Principal Lesley Wintle said the award was acknowledgement of the school’s innovative approach to teaching students, and the skill and dedication of staff, including program leaders Graham Johnson and Jeremy Caspersz.
“STEAM education at Warwick is not an elite program for the best students; it’s for everyone,” she said.
“Graham has a mantra – ‘every child, every class, every opportunity’ – that captures our approach across the school in all areas.”
