We have some incredible people and teams working around the state, so it was great to see some of them being recognised at the Department of Education's Awards for Excellence night last Friday.
Three LINC Tasmania staff were named as finalists in the LINC Tasmania Employee of the Year category
The Glenorchy LINC team were finalists in the overall Outstanding Team of the Year category for their very successful Makerspace project.
The names of all the winners are on the DoE
This week is 26TEN Week, and it marks 26TEN's fifth birthday. To celebrate, members around the state are holding events to highlight the role that parents and carers play.
LINC Tasmania's dual role as host and member
As you are no doubt aware, LINC Tasmania has a dual role with 26TEN:
LINCs joining with 26TEN members to promote family literacy
I know many of you have joined with other organisations that support children, parents and carers, such as schools, childcare centres and local councils to celebrate 26TEN Week. Over 40 organisations are involved in about 80 different activities. This is a great way to promote what we do, and to let people know we are helping adults build their reading, writing and maths skills so all parents can play a vital role in their own children's learning.
We look forward to hearing all about your events – and happy birthday 26TEN!
