As the 2020 EPAA awards celebration approaches, we are proud to announce two inspiring speakers who will be joining us on the night.
Tamil Sri Lankan–born teacher and leader Yasodai Selvakumaran teaches at Rooty Hill High School in Western Sydney. This culturally and linguistically diverse school, based in an area with socio-economic challenges, has been named one of Australia’s 40 most innovative schools in 2016 and 2017. In her short career, Yasodai has already garnered an array of accolades, including the 2014 Australian Council of Educational Leadership Mary Armstrong Award for Outstanding Young Educational Leader, a place on The Educator Australia’s 2017 Rising Stars list, and the Australian Teaching Fellowship for 2018.
Jane Doyle is the K–2 Teaching and Learning Coordinator and Literacy Support teacher at Dominic College in Tasmania. Establishing a range of initiatives, such as a K–6 Japanese language program, the Mamma Margaret Kitchen Garden program, and a parent–teacher literacy and numeracy program, Jane has developed many resources and programs to support students and the school community. In 2018, she received the Pearson Award for Teacher of the Year, and she was also recognised at the Australian Scholarships Group National Excellence in Teaching Awards.
To hear from these innovative leaders in education, we invite you to join us for the 2020 Educational Publishing Awards, to be held online in a free digital event on Thursday 3 September, with thanks to our major sponsor The Copyright Agency.
