THE high quality of teaching at Moree Public School has been recognised with Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall today announcing the school will provide mentoring to an outstanding up-and-coming educational leader, as part of the innovative new FASTstream program.
The program accepts a small number of brilliant candidates each year and provides an intensive mentoring and accelerated leadership pathway, which includes placement at leading public schools, including in the regions.
Mr Marshall said he was thrilled to hear that Janine Peterson would be coming to Moree from Seaham Public School, at the start of Term 1 next year.
“The staff at Moree Public School have so much experience to share and I am so pleased that Janine will have the opportunity to learn from some of our region’s best,” Mr Marshall said.
“We know the importance of great teachers and mentors and this is a program that will see students across regional NSW benefit.
“The new teachers will receive support from a school-based mentor during individual placements, providing them with advice and feedback, as well as a program mentor who will guide them through every step of the ten-year FASTstream journey.
“I know Moree Public School is very excited to have their new teacher and the students will provide a warm welcome for Janine when she enters the classroom.”
More than 200 early career and graduate teachers applied to take part in the exclusive FASTstream program, and more than 120 schools expressed an interested in hosting participants.
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said every participant who had been selected had demonstrated a passion and commitment to public education.
“I’m really excited by the diversity of talent, skills and background of our first group of FASTstreamers, more than half of whom will be placed at a regional or rural school straight away,” Ms Mitchell said.
“We know great school leadership is crucial in lifting student and school outcomes and providing all our students with the opportunities to succeed.
“FASTstream is part of our commitment to identifying and supporting our school leaders at every stage of their career.”
Participants will take part in an induction process in Term 4 this year before beginning placement in their first school in Term 1, 2022.
