The recipient of the 2019 MLTAWA Principal’s Award for Commitment and Support to the Languages Program in their School is
Paul Bottcher – Canning Vale College
“I hold a firm belief in the value of Languages education in that it leads to a holistic education.
It gives students the ability to engage in languages other than their own, engaging in and appreciating a culture and helping to develop and appreciate not only their own culture and history but also the key to other worlds. Engaging in Languages education builds confidence and skills in students as they develop mastery but also gives them new skills and abilities in the use of their English Language.”
The award was presented at Monday, 28 October at the MLTAWA Awards Event.
The six short-listed finalist were invited to attend the presentation at Rossmoyne Senior High School:
Michael Smith East Manjimup Primary School
Helen Deacon Kalamunda Senior High School
Dr Pasco Putrino Governor Stirling Senior High School
