Prime Minister’s Prize for Science Teaching in Secondary Schools

What an honour and such deserving recognition for Mr Brett McKay, Head Teacher Science at Kirrawee High! As this article is published Mr McKay is enjoying a black-tie dinner for 500 people with the Prime Minister at Parliament House Canberra in order to present the Prime Minister’s prizes for Science.

We are so very proud of Mr McKay for his years of dedication to the students of this school, his infectious passion for science teaching and his inexhaustible energy to inspire the next generation of young scientists. This prestigious prize attracts prize money of $25,000 for Mr McKay to further his professional goals and $25,000 for Science Faculty projects at Kirrawee High school. Mr McKay is so excited about the many ideas that can be now put in place for all our students who study this important area of learning.
