A public primary school and a public high school were crowned Western Australia’s leading STEM educators at the 2018 Governor’s School STEM Awards ceremony.
Brookman Primary School took out top honours in the primary schools’ category with its whole school approach and integration of STEM learning across the curriculum. The Langford school has successfully engaged students with the importance of STEM in their everyday lives and future.
Warwick Senior High School won the secondary schools’ category with its strong leadership and commitment to providing ‘STEM for all’. This approach has improved academic performance and student engagement with STEM skills.
Perth College and Comet Bay College were announced as runners-up in the primary and secondary categories respectively and recognised with Meritorious Leadership awards.
The winners and runners-up faced strong competition from the other finalists, which were also recognised at the awards ceremony.
Established in 2015, the annual awards recognise WA schools that demonstrate excellence in leadership, teaching, collaboration and engagement in STEM education.
The ceremony was held at Government House and provided an opportunity for those from finalist schools to meet the Honourable Wayne Martin AC, Lieutenant Governor, and mingle with judges, education body representatives and stakeholders.
