Australia Day honour for foundation member

Australia Day honour for foundation member

ETAQ foundation member Paul Sherman was awarded an OAM (Medal of the Order of Australia) in the 2014 Australia Day Honours list. The citation read: “For service to the arts as a poet and playwright, and to education.”

Hearty congratulations are extended to Paul and to those who initiated his nomination which ETAQ was delighted to have the opportunity to support.

The Management Committee decided last year to acknowledge Paul’s long service to English teaching in Queensland by awarding him Life Membership of ETAQ. It is anticipated that this decision will be ratified at the AGM in March and the presentation made at the state conference in August.

The photo shows Paul as King Lear in a performance in one of his regular school visits.

This is the first time I have been to an ETAQ conference and it was really sensational to get so much at all of the sessions.

ETAQ conferences always have sessions that make me excited to be a teacher.

I know that ETAQ conferences in the past have never disappointed - valuable, relevant, practical, inspiring so I came again.
