Science teacher wins award
Balgowlah Heights Public School teacher Jacqueline Cleary is a winner of the Australian Academy of Science Teacher Awards.
Receiving the NSW award category for her contribution to science education, Ms Cleary will attend the Academy's annual three-day celebration of science and scientists—Science at the Shine Dome— with the other state and territory winners in May.
Teacher award winners will meet with Australia's top scientists and hear about their cutting-edge research, exchange ideas with interstate colleagues, and participate in an interactive education workshop.
"I warmly congratulate the deserving winners of our 2012 Teacher Awards," Academy President, Professor Suzanne Cory said.
