BOSTES President Tom Alegounarias proudly recognised the first 151 NSW public, Catholic and independent school teachers to gain Lead or Highly Accomplished Teacher accreditation at a prestigious ceremony in Sydney on Wednesday 10 August.
In his opening address, Mr Alegounarias emphasised that while professional standards play the important role of providing a framework for public trust in a profession, a high public regard for a profession’s best practitioners gives power.
“The confidence and unassailable standing of the leaders of a profession, is, for me, what makes a profession powerful.”

BOSTES congratulates Highly Accomplished and Lead Teachers, who have been recognised as the profession’s current generation of great teachers, mentors and roles models.
