TEACHER AT THE PONDS RECOGNISED AS ONE OF THE STATE'S FINEST
Written on the 11 September 2019 by Kevin Conolly
One of our local area teachers has been recognised as one of the State's best.
23 teachers across the State were awarded with the highest levels of accreditation at a prestigious ceremony in Sydney last night, including Amanda Singh from The Ponds High School.
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly said the awards recognise highly effective, innovative and exemplary teaching practice.
Mrs Singh has been recognised as a Highly Accomplished Teacher. She is one of 15 teachers to have achieved this level of accreditation in NSW this year.
"Mrs Singh really represents the cream of the crop; she has gone above and beyond the daily demands of the job to achieve excellence in her profession," Mr Conolly said.
"Mrs Singh is using her expertise to lift the prospects of the children in our community, and I am proud and thankful for the work she is doing for our school system."
"I want to congratulate Mrs Singh on her achievements and thank her for the work she does in our school system".
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said that teachers who achieve this level of accreditation are invaluable assets for their school communities as teaching experts, mentors and leaders.
"High quality teaching makes such a difference to the lives and learning of young people and sets them up for life," Ms Mitchell said.
"Teaching across a whole school is undoubtedly enhanced when there are expert teachers to lead the improvement of teaching practice."
At the event, the Professional Teachers' Council NSW launched the NSW Highly Accomplished and Lead Teacher (HALT) Network. The Network will provide an opportunity for NSW HALTs to come together as leaders of the teaching profession and share their experience and expertise.
