The chairman of the NEiTA Foundation , Terry O Connell, is urging parents to complete what he calls a 10 to 15-minute holiday homework assignment. We ve long recognised that out- side the family home, a teacher is the greatest influence on a stu- dent s learning and performance. Who better to nominate the teach- ers and leaders who are making a difference in classrooms around the country than parents, many of whom are also on school boards of trustees, management committees and community organisations. For 15 years, NEiTA -- with the support of ASG Education Programs New Zealand and, more recently, Cognition Education -- has helped pioneer teaching awards as a way of acknowledging the important work of teachers in the community. During this time, more than 3000 early childhood education, primary, intermediate and secondary school teachers have been nominated for awards. These teachers continue to posi- tively contribute to the reputation of the profession, he said. All teachers and leaders, whose nominations are approved, receive a certificate of nomination, with 20 area representatives selected to go forward to receive regional awards in Wellington during May 2012. From these, 10 teachers/ leaders will go on to receive national awards at their schools or centres later in the year. National awardees will receive professional development grants from a pool totalling $35,000, with six $2500 grants and four $5000 grants awarded. Nominations are open until August 31. A 'true leader' Nominated: Dean Rabbitt Dean Rabbitt, director of internationalisation at Hutt International Boys School, has been nominated in the lead- ership category of the 2011-2012 round of the National Excel- lence in Teaching and Leadership Awards. He joins more than 3000 early childhood education, primary, intermediate and secondary school teachers to be nominated for an award during the 15 years the NEiTA Foundation has conducted the awards pro- gramme. The students who nominated Mr Rabbitt, also a year 10-13 Japanese language teacher, see him as a true leader. They say he has turned Japanese from a textbook subject into a learning experi- ence that is real and rounded, opening their eyes to a differ- ent way of life. They say Mr Rabbitt chal- lenges them to take bigger steps and risks in their language study. He has a passion for internationalisation and a genuine desire for young Kiwis to get in touch with the world around them -- particularly countries in the Pacific Rim -- encouraging them to become better, more tolerant and un- derstanding citizens, they say.
