Western Australia’s inaugural Quality Catholic Education Awards have celebrated innovation, care and community spirit in the state’s Catholic schools.
State Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery joined Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA) school staff and leaders at the awards ceremony last week, presenting eight awards across the categories of Catholic identity, education, community and stewardship, as well as the People’s Choice Award.
The QCE Awards, which replaced the annual CEWA awards program, received a record 83 entries from CEWA schools across the state.
CEWA Executive Director Debra Sayce said projects and initiatives nominated for the awards demonstrated the “extraordinary” ways CEWA schools were supporting learning, growth and faith formation for students, school staff and communities.
“It’s essential that we bring forward the best ideas and innovations to support new and more effective strategies in our schools.
“I acknowledge the outstanding achievements of all the 2020 QCE Award winners, and all of the schools and staff members who nominated – our schools have done wonderful work this year, under extraordinary circumstances, to provide students with support, stability, and excellent learning opportunities,” Dr Sayce said.
