Queensland state schools shine as 2020 Showcase finalists announced

Published:

Excellence, innovation and dedication to education have been recognised across Queensland state schools with the 2020 Showcase Awards for Excellence in Schools finalists officially announced.

Education Minister Grace Grace said the annual awards celebrated the hard work in Queensland state schools.

“For the past 21 years, the Showcase Awards have highlighted and rewarded the dedicated teachers, principals and school communities across our state schools,” Ms Grace said.

“I’m proud to say that this year the program received 93 high-quality submissions.

“I would like to congratulate all the schools for their submissions showcasing some fantastic and unique programs and initiatives.

“During my many school visits as Education Minister, I’m constantly amazed to witness the wonderful programs and initiatives on offer at state schools right across Queensland.

“Now, more than ever, the importance of flexible and innovative schooling has shone through, whether in our regional or metropolitan communities.

“This awards program reiterates the high quality of education available to students in Queensland and demonstrates that our state school students are part of a world class education system.”

Ms Grace said this year’s state winners would be announced on Monday 14 September during the 2020 Showcase Awards for Excellence in Schools online awards presentation.

“This year’s state finalists, along with the regional finalists, will share in up to $335,000 of development grants funding,” she said.

“I wish all the finalists the very best of luck.”

Ms Grace acknowledged the generous support of the Showcase Awards sponsors, the majority of whom have been long-term contributors to the program.

“We couldn’t deliver this important program without the wonderful support of our sponsors,” she said.

The 2020 Showcase Awards sponsors and partners are – Central Queensland University, Education Queensland International; Griffith University; Network 10; QSuper; Queensland Teachers’ Union; RemServ; Teachers Mutual Bank, TUH Health Fund and the Department of Education.
