Education Minister Grace Grace said the Showcase Awards recognise and reward innovation in teaching and leadership practice in Queensland state schools.

“I am very pleased to say the calibre of submissions and finalists was simply outstanding once again this year,” she said.

“All of our winners and finalists should be incredibly proud of all they have achieved to enhance students’ learning experiences and advance Queensland’s future through quality public education.”

Kilkivan P-10 won a Network 10 Showcase Award for Excellence in the Early and Primary Years.

It was also a finalist in the Showcase Award for Excellence in Rural and Remote Education.
