Central Coast Grammar School teacher, Melinda Buxton, has been received an Outstanding Professional Service Award from the NSW Professional Teachers’ Council.
The Award is one of the most prestigious educator awards in the State, with hopefuls needing to be nominated by NSW faculty associations to be considered.
A part of the school’s Technology and Visual Arts faculty, Buxton was nominated for the award by the Technology Educators Association of NSW and received news of her success on October 25, World Teachers’ Day.
World Teachers’ Day acknowledges the professionalism and dedication of teachers and their invaluable contribution to the future of our society through their professional teaching associations.
“World Teachers’ Day is an opportunity to publicly acknowledge the work of all teachers.
“It is also a time to express gratitude to the many volunteer teaching associations and show them how much they are valued and an opportunity for the community to reflect on and acknowledge the vital and challenging work that all teachers do,” said Dr Denis Mootz, President of the Professional Teachers’ Council NSW.
