To coincide with World Teachers’ Day and to celebrate the contribution teachers make to our community, we ran a ‘Celebrating Teachers’ competition. Customers were encouraged to tell us about their favourite teacher for their chance to win a prize for themselves and a ‘Teacher Reward Pack’ for their nominated teacher.  

We enjoyed reading all of the stories and delivering the ‘Teacher Reward Packs’ to the 10 winning teachers was a great experience for our Relationship Officers, as well as well-deserved recognition for some of the many teachers that have made a positive impact in the lives of students during their career.

One of those teachers is Debbie from Glen Waverley Primary School, who was nominated by a student teacher who had been mentored by her and has now gone on to become a teacher herself. Debbie also reached a huge milestone in the same week that we visited her school: 35 years teaching!
