About the Awards

The Awards were established in 2015 to recognise the support and commitment of school principals and leadership teams in developing their schools’ science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education programs.

In doing so, the Awards aim to raise awareness of the importance of STEM education among school leadership, and incentivise them to support their teachers in undertaking STEM initiatives.

The Awards identify high quality outcomes and approaches in STEM subjects as well as in the way STEM teaching is integrated across learning areas.

The Governor is pleased to champion this initiative which celebrates school achievements in STEM.
