From a young age, Monica Zanetti knew she wanted to work in the arts. Monica has always genuinely believed - if she worked hard enough and she persevered - that she’d get there.
Mandy Kalyvas needs no introduction to our school communities. This year, Mandy was the joint winner of the School Leader of the Year Award. She was instrumental in leading the response to support school leaders and teachers to pivot to online teaching during term 1 and 2 of 2020. Mandy led the development of a Home Learning website that provided students and families with a range of resources, lessons, and activities. She also enabled the development of a Professional Learning Community to share resources and practice and a Teacher Resource Centre to host a wide range of digital resources to support teachers through the COVID-19 pandemic. Mandy’s positive and empowering leadership saw the development of these resources is a short timeframe to support our school leaders and teachers ACT wide throughout 2020.
