What are some examples of excellent teams?
Many things make an outstanding team, and there are many reasons to nominate a team for a Premier's Award. For example, it could be a team of educators and support staff who build strong relationships with parents to help children learn.
The team may help build students' environmental knowledge and perspectives, and help them become environmentally responsible citizens. Or the team could help students learn about developing healthy relationships and building a positive school climate.
"The team's innovative and inclusive approach to the identification and formation of leaders has fostered a mindset among students that 'everyone can be a leader'".
