Rural Students Urged to Get Snapping


Young photographers are being asked to get clicking and capture images to attract new teachers to regional, rural and remote areas.

Education Minister Grace Grace today launched the Teach Queensland Style Student Photo Competition.

The Teach Queensland Style campaign aims to feature short promotional films, produced or shot by the schools to showcase a glimpse of the unique experience of teaching in a regional, rural or remote state school.

“Regional, rural and remote communities in Queensland are great places to forge a teaching career and this competition gives students an opportunity to let teachers know what they are missing.”

Each school is invited to submit up to four entries per category to an online portal by Sunday 29 April 2018 to vie for a range of prizes including photographic equipment and vouchers.

Students from Prep to Year 6 are invited to enter in classes or groups, while students Year 7 and above can enter individually.

Minister Grace says the Teach Queensland Style campaign was designed to attract more beginning and experienced teachers to explore Queensland, build new friendships and strengthen their career prospects.

“Many schools in regional, rural and remote communities have welcomed both newly-qualified and experienced teachers from other parts of the state, interstate and overseas to begin or advance their teaching careers this year,” she said.
