APATA 2023 Award Presentation Highlights
Posted by Team APATA | Jul 6, 2023
Highlights from the 2023 APATA Award season! Thank you for celebrating performing arts education with us!
The APATA National Awards Program shines a light on our community’s most inspirational performing arts educators and the significant role they play in the performing arts, and the wider community, celebrating achievement and contribution. APATA is a dynamic and progressive body for performing arts teachers and educators who work, practice, develop, nurture, and dedicate their life’s work building emerging artists and creatives for today and tomorrow.
The Australian Performing Arts Teachers Association was fortunate to catch up with Julia Creek-based Amy Tinning at BPAC, to present her with the Teacher of the Year award while there supporting two of her outback dancers, Lucy and Madeline during the competition.
Acknowledging not only the amazing teamwork of her Deputy Principal Tammy Gordon and Student Teacher Hannah Gronold, Amy recognised the families, students and communities who are entwined in her school, Branches Performing Arts.
“This award is a huge honour and I must say it’s not a single handed effort. Many hands, hearts and heads have banded together to bring my vision to life over the past 9 years. This award is a very special way to honour all who have played their part in making our school so great.”
