TWO Fraser Coast schools have taken home top awards at the Showcase Awards for Excellence in Schools.
Urangan State High School was awarded the QSuper Showcase Award for Excellence in Secondary Schools at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre last night.
Tinana State School picked up the TUH Health Fund Showcase Award for Excellence in Inclusive Education.
The Showcase Awards recognise and celebrate the great work done by educators – ensuring students at Queensland state schools receive a world-class education.
Education Minister Grace Grace said the number of high-quality entries reflect the hard work, dedication and expertise of Queensland school staff.
Urangan State High School’s ‘CAPIP – time for the right work’ program used teaching teams to achieve results in the classroom.
Teams participate in twice-weekly collaboration sessions where they pre-moderate the curriculum and assess student work together.

Hervey Bay MP Adrian Tantari said the approach benefitted both students and teachers.
Meanwhile, Tinana State School’s ‘Everyone’s welcome in the room – whatever it takes’ program helps ensure students have access to teaching strategies tailored for their educational needs.
Maryborough MP Bruce Saunders the Tinana had a strong philosophy of inclusive education.
“Results have been encouraging with a 15 per cent increase in students receiving a C or better in English, a 10 per cent improvement in mathematics from 2017 to 2021, a decrease in the number of student disciplinary absences, and an increase in parental collaboration,” Mr Saunders said.
