Two local principals and a teacher have been confirmed as finalists for the 2020 Australian Education Awards.
The Awards celebrate the achievements of the country’s top performing schools, principals, department heads and teachers across the public and private sectors and are a hallmark of excellence in K-12 education.
Wyong Public School’s Todd Miladinovic has been nominated for Primary School Principal of the Year-Government, and Lakes Grammar’s Will Wallace and April Bryson are up for Primary School Principal of the Year-Non-government and Education Rising Star of the Year, respectively.
It comes after Blue Haven Public School and its Principal, Paul McDermott, took out the awards for Australian Primary School of the Year-Government and Primary School Principal of the Year-Government at the 2019 awards, with these back to back nominations shining a light on the high standard of education being delivered on the Coast.
Lakes Grammar Principal, Michael Hannah, extended his congratulations to his colleagues.
“This is a huge honour for both Will and April to be recognised at this level, along with seven other nominees from right around the country in each of their categories.
“Lakes Grammar is one of only two Central Coast schools to have made the Finalist List for 2020.
“Whilst the winners will not be announced until the awards night in October, we congratulate April and Will, we are blessed to have you both within our school community,” he said.
