Jack Pizzey Awards - PBC awarded 'School Leadership Team of the Year'

On Friday 30 October, the Department of Education and Training hosted its annual 2015 Showcase Awards for Excellence in Schools Gala Dinner.
The dinner is the culmination of State Education Week and World Teachers’ Day. The event celebrates those schools and teachers who have demonstrated innovation and excellence in teaching practice to improve outcomes for our students.

Six ‘Showcase Awards for Excellence in Schools’ state award winners were announced amongst finalists from all over Queensland.

Also awarded by the Director General  of Education were the winners of the ‘Jack Pizzey Awards for Excellence in Educational Leadership’ across the four categories:

  • School of the Year
  • Principal of the Year
  • School Leadership Team of the Year
  • Teacher of the Year

PBC was represented in the Leadership Team category for our Executive Leadership Team which consists of our Executive Principal, Directors, Deputy Principals and Business Services Manager. PBC’s submission was deemed worthy of winning this category against competition from all over Queensland. The prize supported by private sponsorship is $25,000 grant for use towards research and professional development.


On the night, the Leadership Team was supported by key teachers, Head of Departments and representatives of the parent and alliance groups. The evening’s master of ceremonies included our very own School Captain Keiarn Chesebro who did a fabulous and very professional job on the night representing our school proudly.
