Previous winners - Sunshine College
In 2015, Sunshine College won the Outstanding School Advancement award for their innovative and effective work in their maths program. They then went on to beat eight other winners to take out the top gong, the Lindsay Thompson Award.
Maths Leader Yvonne Reilly said the win had opened up opportunities for the school.
'The recognition from the award has allowed us to have a legitimate voice in the conversation around improving student outcomes with all stakeholders in the system,' Yvonne said.
The school now also has the opportunity to have a team of six staff to work collaboratively to produce a Reciprocal Teaching resource that can be shared across the government education sector.
Yvonne said every child had the right to a high-quality education.
"It is the responsibility of those of us who are lucky enough to work in the government sector to ensure that that is what we deliver," Yvonne said.
