2017 ASG NATIONAL EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING AWARDS (NEiTA)

Nominations have opened for the 2017 ASG National Excellence in Teaching Awards (NEiTA).

For 23 years, the awards have given communities the opportunity to formally thank their hard-working, inspirational teachers, principals and directors in early childhood, primary and secondary school education.Parents, grandparents, secondary student councils, school boards/councils, parent associations, committees of management and community organisations can nominate teachers for an award.

ASG NEiTA Chief Executive John Velegrinis says: “These awards recognise the important role of teachers and educators in our communities. I encourage communities to nominate their teachers—by nominating a teacher for an award you are showing them how much you value and appreciate the work they do.”

Nominations for the awards close on 3 July 2017. To nominate go to: www.asg.com.au/nominate

The Coorparoo State School P&C aims to:
  • Provide a forum for positive discussion of educational issues, school policies, long-term planning and budgeting.
  • Welcome everyone’s views, opinions, input and suggestions and aim to make decisions on behalf of the school community, representing a wide cross-section of our families.
  • Reorganise fundraising events such as our biennial festival (fete), spell-a-thons, etc., which help the school to provide resources above and beyond those provided by Education Queensland.
  • Organise events and functions to bring our teaching staff in closer contact with our parent body, to encourage better communication and understanding of each other’s roles.
  • Represent all interest groups and specialty areas within the school. Groups and services sponsored by the P&C include the Swimming Club and Music Committee.

General Meetings of the P&C are held on the third Wednesday of each month at 7.00 pm, in the Library. We encourage you to attend these meetings, both to learn more about your school, and to have input to the decision-making process. The Annual General Meeting is held on the third Wednesday of March each year. The President’s Annual Report and the Annual Financial Report are presented at this meeting. Elections also take place for positions on the Executive Committee for the following year.

School Community Liaison Officer (SCLO)

The P&C fund the employment of a School Community Liaison Officer. It is the job of the SCLO to work towards bringing all sections of the community together in order to facilitate strong working relationships across the community and assist in the development of a rich and inclusive learning environment for our children.

These duties include promoting community building within the school, hosting social events, providing information to parents about the school and educational issues, fostering community networks, developing volunteer networks within the school and keeping lines of communication open between teaching staff, administration, students and parents. The SCLO also manages the Parent Classroom Representative Program.
