1. Public School Parent of the Year Awards Closing 12 June 2009
In 2009, as in previous years, a range of Awards are on offer to recognise the achievements of members of the NSW public education community. Two of these awards may be of particular interest to your members, and I would be grateful if you could bring them to their attention.
The Public School Parent of the Year Award acknowledges and promotes the outstanding contribution of parents to the public school community. This year, as in previous years, the Award will be nominated, selected and presented within each DET Region. Each panel will include a representative of the P&C.
The Director-General's School Achievement Award is presented each year to schools that have made significant contributions to public education and the achievement of goals stated in the Department's corporate planning documents.
Both of these awards have a closing date for nominations of 12 June 2009.
Further information about these, and other awards is available on the Department's website at https://www.det.nsw.edu.au/awards/pspoty.htm

Teaching and Learning Exchange (TaLE) is a single gateway where teachers, school leaders and parents can easily locate resources and research to support the learning of students.
TaLE now has a new page for parents , where you can discover what your child will learn and how you can help them as they move from preschool, through primary and secondary school and beyond into tertiary education and training.
The Centre for Learning Innovation was established in 2004 and is part of the NSW Department of Education and Training. Its role is to provide excellence in learning resource production, and leadership in the strategic use of technology in education and training.
Curriculum Support aims to provide useful and accessible support to teachers, which will contribute to quality teaching and improved learning outcomes for students.
