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.
Abigail Tamani is one of many students learning at Ocean Road PS.
