Excellent effort for SEU team
SINCE starting work at Emerald North State School five years ago, Tracey Dolzan has been rewarded numerous times for her commitment to the students in the Special Education Unit.
Last month, Tracey and the team at Emerald North were awarded with the Fly High Through an Inclusive Curriculum Showcase Award for excellence in the area.
Tracey, who is the head of Special Education Services at the school, said it was a great feeling for the Special Education Unit team to receive the award this year, but that everything they did was for the kids.
“I just love getting achievements out of the kids and celebrating the successes of their learning,” Tracey said.
The Emerald teacher said she loved her job and that the school had about 38 students in the Special Education Unit at Emerald North.
Last week, the school held an open day for the kids, where they got their hands dirty in the gardens, planting and watering trees and flowers.
“It was a great day,” Tracey said.
The Emerald North special education team will now go on to the state awards which will be announced in October in Brisbane.
Tracey said she was excited about the awards and was looking forward to hearing whether they would win.
“I hope so,” she said.
“It would be great recognition for the girls here who work so hard every day.”
