Teacher Award

Kate Mullin Teacher Award 2019

Open to all Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal educatorsmichelle-classroom

Are you (or do you know) an Australian educator who has helped to improve English language and literacy outcomes for Aboriginal students, while maintaining links to Aboriginal culture and identity?

The Kate Mullin Award aims to recognise and celebrate educators from any of the three WA school sectors of education, who demonstrate excellence in the teaching of English to Aboriginal students whose first language may be Aboriginal English, an Aboriginal Language or a creole such as the Kimberley Kriol. The educator can self-nominate or be nominated by a line-manager, colleague, student or community member.

The award fits well with our vision, which is that through improved literacy, Aboriginal students will enjoy the same opportunities and choices as the wider community.  Presented annually, the Kate Mullin Teacher Award, of $3,000, goes to the teacher who has made the greatest contribution to improving Aboriginal literacy. We have already seen what a buzz the teacher and school, as well as the local community, get from success in this award, and would like to see it go to a worthy recipient again this year.

The due date for applications is Thursday 7 November.

Please see the attached flyer for more information, and Application and Referee Forms – these have been kept as brief and straightforward as possible as we understand how busy teachers are.  The flyer can be downloaded here: Teacher Award Flyer 2019, the Nomination Form here: Kate Mullin Nomination Form 2019, and the Referee Statement here: Kate Mullin Referee Statement 2019.
