Although we may have lost Robin Williams, that phrase from Dead Poets’ Society will never die. “Oh Captain My Captain” will forever echo in the minds of educators around the world.
Teachers matter, and School News is interested in hearing from students about their most inspirational teacher. So we ask all high schools to engage with their student body, and offer them the opportunity to formally acknowledge their most inspirational teacher in a piece to be published in national education magazine, School News, Australia.
Not only will the winning student win $500 worth of great titles for their school library, your budding writer will get published!
The story will run in our print magazine, and online, where there will also be space dedicated on the School News website for highly commended entries.
School News Term 1, 2017 – Oh Captain my Captain will be sponsored by Hachette Children’s Books.
