Peoples’ Choice Award - new in 2017

The Peoples’ Choice Award will offer one school or preschool the chance to profile their initiative in a big way.

When the final group of TIP recipients is identified, we will ask the people to decide on the worthy winner of the Peoples’ Choice Award - the school or preschool with the most votes will receive a video creation package to showcase their initiative and the opportunity to present their initiative at our Annual General Meeting in November.

Stay tuned for upcoming information about the Peoples’ Choice Award and the opening of the voting poll.

What is it?

The Teaching Initiatives Program (TIP) was developed to support schools and preschools in bringing innovative teaching ideas to life, and to encourage excellence in education.

How does it work?

Tell us about your initiative – it could be a new program, a new teaching method or an innovative idea to be implemented. Initiatives need to fall under one of the following four categories: Indigenous Culture, Sustainability, Engage with Asia and General Curriculum. The TIP committee will then consider each idea based on its merits.

Get started!
