Congratulations to long-term client Cleveland District SHS for their continued success in the Education Queensland Showcase for Excellence in Schools Awards in 2017.
At the Gala Award Nights on October 27, Principal Paul Bancroft OAM was awarded Education Queensland’s top accolade of Principal of the Year 2017.
The top honour was given to Mr. Bancroft by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk. Forty teachers from the school were on hand at the gala event to cheer their Principal on as he collected his award.
Paul has indicated his accompanying $15,000 prize win will go towards the school’s International Baccalaureate Diploma, which began last year.
Paul’s nomination and strong submission reflected his efforts over 27 years as Cleveland’s Principal to lift student achievement and build teaching capacity in the areas of language and culture, sports and the arts.
