Public school staff (including principals), school council/board chairs and P&C presidents can nominate their school for an award. Senior central services staff can also submit a nomination for a school.
The school principal, leadership team, staff and broader school community should be informed and supportive of a nomination. The best nominations are a team effort. The principal must endorse the nomination before it is submitted.
Parents, students and other community members can't submit a nomination. Talk to your school and encourage them to nominate.
All Western Australian public schools are eligible to be nominated for an award.
Schools can be nominated in both the Excellence in School Leadership Award and an Excellence in Teaching and Learning award, but only once in each category. For Excellence in Teaching and Learning awards, schools with both primary and secondary-aged students should choose either primary or secondary category which best suits the context of their school and nomination.
Previous whole-school winners, finalists and nominees of the WA Education Awards are eligible for nomination. Individuals are not eligible to be nominated.
