Teachers do amazing work every day in our school. This is a great opportunity to recognise and thank them. Recognising a teacher for an award is a celebration for the whole school community. Nominations keep the focus on the high standards of teaching and learning in our school.
Brisbane State High School also recognises exemplary work undertaken by our Support Staff. Each year at our Awards Ceremony, the Support Staff Excellence Awards for Performance and Service are presented. These awards recognise support staff work, performance and service of the highest calibre together with a work ethic that is above and beyond the standard expectations held for this category of staff in schools.
A selection committee decides—from nominations submitted by staff, students and parents—recipients to be honoured at our annual Awards Ceremony with the presentation of a trophy, a place on the honour board and a prize in recognition of their contribution to the BSHS community.
Nominations are open to Administrative, Cleaning, Facilities, ICT, Pastoral, Science and Teacher Aide Staff.
To be eligible for the Support Staff Excellence Awards for Performance and Service, the support staff employee nominee must have a minimum of one year of service at Brisbane State High School, working at least .50 FTE. Casual employees are eligible for nomination if they have been employed with the school for more than six months.
A panel of staff, parent and student representatives will undertake the selection process.
