Teaching Excellence Week

This month, the College dedicated an entire week to our hardworking teachers to recognise the invaluable contributions they make to our shaping students, enriching our school, supporting the wider community, and advancing the profession.

Throughout the week from 24 to 28 October, we treated our teachers to a BBQ breakfast, coffee, bookmarks and chocolate in their pigeonholes, and a celebratory event in CPAC.

The UN World Teacher’s Day on 5 October not only celebrated the pivotal role teachers play in educating all learners, but also generated awareness about the factors which impede access to, and the provision of, quality teaching across the globe.

Testament to the broad teaching talent at Calamvale, 19 of our teachers were conferred Teaching Excellence Awards to formally acknowledge their high-quality teaching practice. These teachers were also nominated for 2018 Queensland College of Teachers awards.

The College extends warm congratulations to our place winners:

Chrissie Fatialofa 1st
Natalie Mahon 2nd
Belinda Robertson 3rd


Throughout 2018, our teachers have demonstrated excellence in the creation of flexible and innovative learning experiences, their contributions to academic development, their facilitation of inclusive and participatory learning, and their use of technology to enhance their teaching practice.

Of course, one week of recognition does in no way requite the countless hours that our teachers dedicate each day to educating the next generation, and the innumerable contributions they make to prioritise the learning and wellbeing of our students. We thank our teachers for shaping the curious, creative, and clever students for which the College is renowned.
