There has never been a better time to show gratitude and recognition to the teachers of Queensland! Jason Murray, Chief of Member Experience at QSuper, notes “Teachers give, day in, day out, often thanklessly and tirelessly. This year more than most I think we‛ve found a new level of appreciation for the powerful role they play in shaping our children‛s lives and worldview. They are mentors, guides and foundational role models for life, and we are humbled by all they do.”
Commenting on her involvement, artist Rachel Burke said, “As a mother, a proud Queenslander and an advocate for education, particularly the arts, I‛m thrilled to be involved. From the entries received my goal is to create an artwork that will honour Queensland teachers as well as capture the creativity of our kids.
“I know personally, there are a few stand out teachers that spring to my mind and helped me in getting to where I am today as an artist, and they too, undoubtedly will form part of my inspiration” added Ms Burke.
