The MLTAWA Annual General Meeting was held over breakfast at Frasers Restaurant in Kings Park on Saturday 23 November. What a fantastic venue! With the view of the city spread out infront of us, we enjoyed a great spread of food whilst participating in the AGM.
Kate Reitzenstein was awarded the Hilde Dixon Award. Nominated by both AISWA and WILTA, she is a worthy recipient of this year’s prize. Kate has worked tirelessly for Languages education, especially Indonesian, and truly encapsulates the criteria of receiving the Hilde Dixon Award:
- Demonstrate a commitment to excellence in the teaching and learning of languages
- Demonstrate a commitment to the welfare and inclusion of all students
- Demonstrate a nurturing nature and significant contribution to other language teachers in the profession (i.e. Teacher development, mentorship, professional association involvement, district or regional networks, involvement in other organisations with a language interest).
- Demonstrate involvement with, and service to, a (SLA) single language association and / or MLTAWA.
Margo Whittle (JLTAWA) was also a finalist for the award, and we congratulate them both on their achievements.
