Newton Moore Education Support Centre has been named a finalist in the WA Education Awards for a second consecutive year.

Newton Moore Senior High School principal Penny Nunn said she was overwhelmed when she found out the centre had again made the top four.

“I was absolutely thrilled to be a finalist again,” Mrs Nunn said.

“I wasn’t really expecting it because they have so many nominations and so many amazing schools that I thought, to do it once was great but to do it again I really don’t know.

“Our goal and our absolute passion is to make sure that our students, no matter what level of disability, are successful in whatever they chose when they leave.”

Mrs Nunn said she was proud of the effort from her colleagues.

“We are the first education support centre to ever be nominated and we have done it two years in a row now,” she said.

“I think it is a combination of a lot of things, but what sets us apart is the staff here at the school, they’re absolutely amazing.

“Without their passion, dedication and specialist expertise, we would not be the school we are today.”

Year 12 Newton Moore student executive Amber Savory said the award was a big team effort.

“I think we all play an important role within the school and we are all here to help each another,” Amber said.

The winner will be announced at a ceremony in October.
