The newspaper 'Jewish News' and the communal organisation 'Partnership for Jewish Schools (PaJeS)' held the inaugural Jewish Teacher Awards Ceremony this week at JW3. Together with support from the Emmes Foundation, the awards offered the opportunity to celebrate the dedication of teachers both in Jewish and secular subjects in primary and secondary schools.
Sharron Krieger (Jewish Studies teacher at JFS for 27 years) was awarded the award for ‘Innovation in Jewish Studies’.
Readers of the newspaper nominated 280 primary and secondary school teachers across four categories that were reduced to a shortlist of three in each of the eight categories and the winner was then chosen by a judging panel.
All winners at the awards received a certificate, a trophy and £5,000 to fund a school project of their choice.
Headteacher, Jonathan Miller said, “There is a great deal of outstanding teaching that takes place at JFS and it is wonderful to have this opportunity to celebrate one such example.”
