St Stephen’s School claims WA award again


ST STEPHEN’S SCHOOL has taken out the esteemed WA Teacher Librarian of the Year Award for the second year running.

Library services teacher Jo-Anne Urquhart has been honoured for the positive impact she has had on student achievement and information literacy, taking the mantle from last year’s winner, St Stephen’s School head of library services Lise Legg.

“I am absolutely thrilled to receive this honour,” Mrs Urquhart said.

“For St Stephen’s School to claim this award for the past two years is remarkable, especially when you consider how many schools vie for this title.”

St Stephen’s School’s primary area recently underwent renovations which included creating flexible learning spaces for children in years 3-6, as well as upgrades to the primary library.

Mrs Urquhart said the new ‘library without walls’ was designed to inspire and ignite a passion for reading amongst students.
