Nikki Boyd, State Member for Pine Rivers has today commended Bray Park State High School for throwing their hat in the ring for Queensland’s 2019 Showcase Awards for Excellence in Schools.
Now in its 20th year, the Showcase Awards are regarded as the most prestigious educational awards in Queensland, shining a light on Queensland schools who demonstrate excellence in education, innovation and leadership.
Bray Park State High has been highly commended and will receive a $500 development grant to help them continue to deliver their program. The school has a proud history in the Showcase Awards, winning the State School of the Year Category in 2017.
“This is a significant accolade and provides some well-deserved recognition for the great work they do,” Ms Boyd said.
“The quality of submissions for this year’s awards was exceptional and extremely competitive, making the task of selecting award winners difficult for the regional judging teams.
“As I visit schools in my electorate, I continue to be impressed with the commitment of our principals and teachers to improve opportunities available for students. It’s so important that we recognise the great work our educators do daily, to ensure that Queensland continues to be at the forefront of new education practices.”
State award winners will be announced at the Showcase Awards Gala Dinner in Brisbane on Friday 25 October 2019, which also happens to be World Teachers’ Day.
