Jimboomba and Flagstone teachers win hearts of local community

FLAGSTONE State School won the most nominations in a social media hunt to find the best teachers in the 4280 postcode. 

Jimboomba Professionals called on the community to recognise the teachers who were going above and beyond their regular teaching duties and received nominations from Emmaus College, Jimboomba State School, Hills College, Flagstone State School, Flagstone State Community College and local kindergartens.

Flagstone State School deputy principal Mike Meier spoke at a special school assembly on Friday, October 12 to acknowledge the hard work of the 17 teachers nominated and those who work hard without expecting praise.

“If more parents had known about the competition we would have had even more teachers nominated,” he said.

“We appreciate all the work our teachers do. They are caring, they know their kids, they work hard and are great communicators.”

Jimboomba Professionals finished the competition last week in the lead up to International World Teachers Day on Friday, October 5.

Certificates have been presented to teachers at Emmaus College, Hills College and various kindergartens.

Flagstone State Community College teachers will be awarded on Monday, October 15 and Jimboomba State School will get a visit on October 26.

Sue Taylor from C&K Flagstone was crowned as the 4280 postcode’s most loved teacher.

Megan Behn from Jimboomba Professionals said the competition would become an annual event following the positive community response.
