PTANT Award for Meritorious Contribution to the Teaching Profession in the Northern Territory

The Professional Teachers’ Association of the Northern Territory celebrated the 2016 Awards for Meritorious Contribution to the Teaching Profession on December 1 at Wharf One Food & Wine.

These awards, which began in 2009, acknowledge the dedication and hard work of teachers in advocating and promoting professional collegiality, engagement, knowledge and practice. These awards further acknowledge teachers leading teachers across a range of professional and educational contexts, for the benefit of Territory students.

PTANT would like to congratulate all of our 2016 award recipients who were nominated by their teaching associations for their dedication, passion and contribution to the Northern Territory teaching profession.
