Teaching Excellence Program

Yarra Primary School teacher’s Yasmin and Rachel were accepted into the Teacher Excellence Program in 2022.

Yarra Primary School teacher’s Yasmin and Rachel were accepted into the Teacher Excellence Program in 2022. The program for highly skilled teachers requires a portfolio and interview process and in 2022 was offered to only 250 Victorian government, Catholic and Independent school teachers. The program is designed for teachers who demonstrate exceptional teaching in their selected discipline. Rachel’s focus is Mathematics and Yasmin is focussed on Literacy. We know student learning growth is highly correlated with highly effective teachers and Yarra’s students are well-supported by our excellent teachers.
