Former performing arts and drama teacher at St Paul’s Anglican Grammar School Prue Vermay was recently awarded the Gippsland Education Service Award by the Australian College of Educators.
The awards evenings have been run for more than 20 years and each year a specific category is chosen to award educators who have achieved outstanding work.
Ms Vermay, who celebrated 20 years of service at St Paul's last year, is known for her passion and commitment to performing arts and drama, both at the school and in the West Gippsland community.
The award recognised the positive results she achieved for her students through the arts. An inspiring teacher, she identified and fostered her students’ talents to help them achieve things they never thought possible.
Her students consistently received high marks (most above 80 per cent) in the AMEB speech and drama examinations for which she prepared them.
Many have gone on to complete VCE drama and/or theatre studies and achieved high marks, including a state-topping study score of 50 multiple performances in Top Acts.
Now retired, Ms Vermay taught at St Paul’s for more than 20 years and is still involved with productions casually.
She also regularly connects with families and the wider community to celebrate and praise the progress of students.
