Many Queensland teachers and educators have trusted QSuper with their retirement savings for more than 100 years. This World Teachers’ Day, we’re recognising the dedication, innovation and resilience of teachers as they moved from classrooms to living rooms and back again throughout the disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
As part of the celebrations to thank teachers for all that they do, we’re inviting eligible teachers and educators from across the state to enter QSuper’s World Teachers’ Day competition. There are seven prizes to be won, each including a $100 voucher for the winning teacher and a $1,500 prize pack for their school.
To enter, we’re asking teachers to tell us in 25 words or less, What's one memorable lesson you've learnt from a student this year? Terms and conditions apply.
Teachers from both public and private education institutions are encouraged to participate.
One of last year’s winners was Leanne Fox, principal at Northern Peninsula Area State College in the state’s far north, just a short drive from the tip of Cape York.
Ms Fox has been teaching for 30 years. She originally worked as a psychologist but it’s perhaps inevitable that she ended up in the classroom, given her family history.
“I come from a long line of teachers. My uncle, grandmother, great grandmother – my daughter is also a teacher, so I think it’s genetic,” Ms Fox said.
Northern Peninsula Area State College has campuses across the remote communities of Bamaga and Injinoo. For Ms Fox, remote area working has been both a pleasure and a privilege.
Two of Ms Fox’s former students have become Young Australians of the Year and it’s highlights like these that deliver huge satisfaction for the long-time educator.
“It’s exciting. It’s an honour to work with them and their families, to get them through school and see them succeed.
Thanks to Ms Fox’s success in QSuper’s competition last year, teachers at her college can now enjoy daily coffees, with machines being purchased for each campus. “It’s the little things like that that are important when you’re remote,” she said.
As for her individual prize of a voucher, it went on school supplies, an example of the kind of selflessness World Teachers’ Day sets out to celebrate.
QSuper is proud to support the financial wellbeing of Queensland’s teachers, just as teachers support the educational needs of students across the state. We strive to give every one of our members the confidence to relax and focus on their daily lives, secure in the knowledge that their financial future is in safe hands.
Our World Teachers’ Day competition is just one of the ways QSuper gives back to those who contribute so positively to our community.
Entries in QSuper’s World Teachers’ Day competition close on Monday, 26 October 2020. The winners will be announced on World Teachers’ Day in Queensland on Friday, 30 October 2020.
