Each year during the first week of August, NSW celebrates public education and its local schools and students.The theme of NSW Education Week is ‘Learning together.’
It’s an acknowledgement of the challenges the public school community has faced in 2020 and how NSW education staff, together with parents and carers, have “worked tirelessly to ensure that high quality teaching and learning has continued for all students,” said Department of Education Secretary Mark Scott.
Brad Joyce, our Group Chief Executive Officer, shared his thoughts on the annual celebration: “This Education Week, I’d like to acknowledge NSW public school staff for your incredible commitment throughout an especially challenging few months. In collaboration with your students, and their parents and carers, you've continued to learn together, showing great resilience and strength as a community. Thank you for everything you've done and continue to do. Wishing you all the very best and enjoy the celebrations!”
