School Support Staff Recognition Week – Celebrate, Recognise, ThankQ from Qsuper!

Posted on August 17, 2021

You should be recognised and celebrated for the essential role you play. We know the world class education Queensland students receive would not happen without you.

It’s time to celebrate you!

That’s why each year Together promotes School Support Staff Recognition Week.

Some members may be celebrating this week! This week was the original date, however, due to the recent COVID outbreaks your ability to gather and celebrate may have been hampered – so we are relaunching School Support Staff Recognition Week for the last week of Term: 13-17 of September, 2021.
