Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards 2015

Congratulation Mrs Chapman!

 

The Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards recognise and reward teachers from schools across Australia who are making an outstanding contribution to developing the essential financial literacy skills of their students.

This year more than 230 applications from teachers of Kindergarten to Year 12 students from all over Australia were received.

The judging panel of education experts were impressed with the quality and diversity of applications this year. The 15 winners clearly communicated their financial learning program concept, the expected learning outcomes, included a prudent budget plan and well-articulated measures for sustainable success.

Mrs Chapman was recognised for her work in establishing a coffee shop at Manjimup Senior School, run by vocational students studying hospitality. Delivering a holistic approach to financial education, the coffee shop provides students with practical skills and knowledge integrated into a fun, simulated work environment.
