OCEAN Road 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 awards pro­mote the im­por­tance of Stem ed­u­ca­tion in schools to de­velop the skills to sup­port the jobs of the fu­ture.

The judges will visit the school fi­nal­ists next month and win­ners will be an­nounced 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 would re­quire for the jobs of the fu­ture.

Ed­u­ca­tion and Train­ing Min­is­ter Sue Ellery said the generic skills stu­dents learnt study­ing Stem sub­jects were trans­fer­able across in­dus­tries and crit­i­cal for their fu­ture job prospects.
