Now in its fifth year, the Governor’s School STEM Awards recognise excellence in delivering an innovative, engaging and whole-of-school approach to science, technology, engineering and maths education.
The schools named as finalists have successfully integrated a whole-of-school STEM culture across the curriculum, providing students with opportunities to engage with technology and develop a range of problem solving and analytical skills.
The finalist primary schools are:
- Baynton West Primary School (Baynton – near Karratha)
- Brookman Primary School (Langford) (Winners of the 2018 primary school category, pictured above)
- Pannawonica Primary School (Pannawonica)
The finalist secondary schools are:
- Cecil Andrews College (Seville Grove)
- Hale School (Wembley Downs)
- Melville Senior High School (Melville)
- Presbyterian Ladies’ College (Peppermint Grove)
Judges will visit finalists after the school holidays to help them decide which schools will take out top honours in the awards.
In November, representatives from the finalist schools will be invited to an awards ceremony at Government House where the winners will be announced and presented with awards by the Governor.
“Congratulations to all of this year’s finalists in the Governor’s School STEM Awards. I am proud to support these awards which celebrate excellence among school leadership teams in delivering outcomes critical to next generational industry development. I look forward to hearing about the initiatives of each school and the enthusiasm of their students in learning about science, technology, engineering and mathematics.”The Honourable Kim Beazley AC, Governor of Western Australia
