I am delighted to let you know that two of our teachers were nominated for DECD Quality Teacher Awards this year. Kerry Read was nominated for being a highly effective teacher who is able to progress students by using effective pedagogies that ensure rigour in all learning areas. Kerry wishes to thank whomever nominated her, she is humbled by the nomination and very grateful.

Alana Dunn was nominated for the quality of the work she does every day with her students. Alana has impressed DECD visitors to the school with her visible learning work. Of her award nomination Alana stated; I feel so honoured and humbled to be nominated as there are so many outstanding, passionate and creative teachers out there. In particular, my colleagues here at Riverton Primary School who challenge, inspire and support not only their students but also other teachers like me.

How good it is to know that our students have such good quality teachers working with them every day. I am again a proud principal of Riverton Primary School.
