The Lord-Lieutenant, Viscount De L’Isle and Viscountess De L’Isle attended the 13th Annual Kent Teacher of the Year Awards Dinner at Leeds Castle on 19th May 2016. It was organised by the Kent Messenger Charity Team and co-sponsored by many other firms and charities, together with Kent and Medway Councils.
The Awards were divided between 10 areas across Kent and Medway and a further 22 individual overall winners which can be viewed at – http://www.kmcharityteam.co.uk/2016/05/kents-top-teachers-revealed-annual-awards/
The Judges received a large number of strong nominations, which made for a difficult task, when selecting both the area winners and the individual awards.
The Lord-Lieutenant made a short welcoming address:
“Tonight we are pleased to be celebrating the very best practice amongst teachers, their support staff and volunteers in schools across Kent”.
“We all know how important a good education, provides firm foundations for Kent’s broadly based “knowledge economy”, which will provide jobs of all types for differing skill sets and requirements. This in turn will bring success and fulfillment for the youth of our community.”
