ACT Public Education Awards 2020

The ACT Public Education Awards recognise our staff members who go above and beyond to make a real difference to the lives of our students and our school communities.

We have so many exceptional staff working across our public schools and within our education support office and this is an opportunity for us to recognise the work and dedication of our colleagues.

In recognition of the challenges faced by schools and the Education Support Office during the COVID-19 pandemic, nominations are encouraged to also consider contributions and innovations during the emergencies of 2020.
