Teachers Health Fund proudly supports SA Public Teaching Awards

Teachers Health Fund were pleased to sponsor the recent SA Public Teaching Awards.

The prestigious annual awards scheme recognises, rewards and celebrates the valuable contributions of dedicated and effective teachers, education leaders and support staff in SA’s public schools and preschools.

Regional award winners progressed to a final assessment by a five-strong panel of state-level judges, including Teachers Health Fund’s CEO, Brad Joyce. Seven overall winners were then announced at a celebratory event at Hickinbotham Hall, Adelaide, attended by 150 educators from around South Australia.

Award winners received a scholarship towards their professional development of up to $20,000. Congratulations to all the winners and everyone involved in the awards.
