CARING TEACHER AWARDS
First presented in 1996, the awards are aimed at acknowledging and rewarding local school teachers who through their daily deeds and actions, exemplify the values of caring, sharing and concern for the academic, moral, social, emotional and mental welfare of their students.
Schools are invited to submit up to five nominations. Of these, a preliminary round is conducted to shortlist outstanding candidates for the National Level Award. Thereafter, the shortlisted National Level Award nominees are invited to meet an external panel of judges who will select the National Level Award winners.
The remaining nominees are recognised as National Commendation Award winners. All nominees are highly regarded by the local school community as nurturers, inspiring individuals and mentors.
