Yasodai Selvakumaran

Yasodai Selvakumaran from Rooty Hill High School received a Teaching Fellowship in 2018.

Offered through a partnership between the Commonwealth Bank and national charity Schools Plus, the Awards recognise and celebrate great teachers and school leaders who go above and beyond to make a difference and shape a brighter future for their students and their schools, particularly in disadvantaged communities.

This year, 12 outstanding educators will receive a $45,000 Teaching Fellowship, including $30,000 for a project at the Fellow’s school, $10,000 for professional development, and a group study tour to a high-performing education system valued at $5,000.

Fellows will also receive unique opportunities to develop skills and networks, learn from leading education experts and become part of an alumni group helping to shape Australia's education future.

Now in their third year, the Awards are open to teachers and school leaders from all Australian schools, from all sectors.

Applications are open from 27 August to 27 September. To apply or nominate, go to the Teaching Awards website.
