Conducted by EducationHQ and Australian Teacher Magazine, the awards aim to shine a light on teachers who go above and beyond without a word of complaint, who fly under the radar, who steer clear of the spotlight and see their exceptional work as being “all in the line of duty”. 

Do you know someone who fits this description?

They could be an outstanding principal, a devoted teacher or a gifted school gardener.

Nominations are now open for the 2019 Unsung Heroes Awards, in the following categories: Leader, Teacher, Music Teacher, Technology, Support, Teacher-Librarian, Italian Teacher and Media/Drama Teacher. 

Il Globo and La Fiamma are pleased to support the Italian Teacher category for another year.

This support reflects our desire to continue to expand our focus on the education sector and highlight the wonderful work that Italian teachers do.

We encourage students, parents and other members of the education sector to nominate the Italian teacher who they believe is an unsung hero.

The winner of the Italian Teacher award will receive a $500 Booktopia gift voucher, thanks to platinum sponsor Corwin, and a $500 cash prize courtesy of Il Globo and La Fiamma to spend on their further professional development.

If you’ve been waiting to sing your praises for a certain somebody, now is your chance.

Simply head to EducationHQ’s website and share a little about your unsung hero in the applicable category.

Happy nominating!
