NSW Premier's Teacher Scholarship winners

Twenty-one of NSW’s best teachers have been rewarded with a 2017 Premier’s Teacher Scholarship, for their commitment to quality education at a reception at the State Library of New South Wales.

The scholarships are open to all NSW teachers from government and non-government schools and preschools, as well as TAFE NSW Institutes, and provide recipients with $10,000-$15,000 in funds for a five-week study tour.
