EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING AWARDS
St Peter’s had four teachers shortlisted in the various categories of the BCE Excellence in Teaching Awards. Unfortunately we were not successful in winning any of the categories, however we should be incredibly proud of our teachers. To put the quality of our staff into perspective I will share the following data with you:
• There are 137 schools in the community of schools that make up Brisbane Catholic Education
• Brisbane Catholic Education employs approximately 6000 teachers
• There were nine teachers from St Peter’s nominated for an Excellence in Teaching Award
• Forty Teachers across the diocese were shortlisted
• Only 1 in 5 BCE schools had a teacher shortlisted for Excellence in Teaching
• St Peter’s had four teachers shortlisted
The maths speaks for itself, I hope you are proud!
We are having a wonderful time in Canberra and despite the cold the days have been clear and sunny. On Sunday we visited the National Museum and Questacon, the students were all intrigued by the history of Australia and the enormous slide at Questacon. Monday saw an early start with a trip to the Australian Mint, the students were fascinated by the history of coins in Australia and the process for minting them. From the Mint we took a walk down Anzac Parade and into the War Memorial. This was a wonderful experience and an amazing monument to all those who have stood up to protect our nation. I must say that our St Peter's students made me very proud, they certainly know how to be respectful and behave appropriately.
Our students have been very well prepared for this trip and have impressed the guides at each place we have visited with their knowledge and questions. I was particularly impressed with their knowledge of our electoral process and the seriousness with which each student engaged in all the activities. They had the opportunity to search for parents on the electoral roll, there were some very serious faces when names didn't come up - some of you may get questions when they arrive home.
