The Queensland Division of the Home Economics Institute of Australia invites nominations for the HEIA(Q) 2019 Home Economics Teacher Excellence Awards. This is an invaluable opportunity to recognise and celebrate the outstanding work done by home economics practitioners. Home economics teachers contribute much to education in Queensland and this is one way the profession can acknowledge practitioners who excel in the field.
The Excellence Awards will be presented at the HEIA(Q) state conference. Regional functions may be arranged to celebrate awardees from regional centres.
