Congratulations Mrs Ryan


Wooloowin State School’s, Patrice Ryan, was one of three Queensland teachers to receive a National Award in the Australian Scholarships Group National Excellence in Teaching Awards (NEITA) on Friday March 28, at a ceremony in Melbourne.

Selected from more than 1550 nominations in 2013, Patrice was honoured for her outstanding contribution to teaching. She was nominated by the Wooloowin school community and received her award for innovation. She has implemented a values program at the school and also mentored other teachers in the development of their own class blogs. All teachers at Wooloowin now create blogs each week to keep parents informed of the teaching and learning that occurs in their child’s class. Patrice received a $5000 professional development grant.
