Nathan Harvey Languages Education Scholarship

Nathan Harvey
Local, National & International Languages Leader

Nathan Harvey was a towering figure in Languages Education. At the time of his unexpected passing in September 2023 he was the leader of the biggest team of Languages teachers in WA, having raised and invigorated the program at Willetton Senior High School from his appointment as teacher of Japanese through to promotions to Head of Languages and Associate Principal.

In the same period, Nathan contributed to the wider community of Languages teachers through his work in the MLTAWA, including as Treasurer, and in the AFMLTA of which he became President for 2020-2022.

Nathan was well known and highly respected both nationally and internationally for his significant contributions to Languages Education. He consistently advocated for and promoted the importance of language learning, and championed language learners and teachers across all levels of schooling. Nathan made enduring, optimistic connections with all who worked and learned with him. This scholarship will extend those language-learning connections to future language learners and teachers.
