Aurora community principal up for national education award


Aurora’s own Harvest Home Primary School only opened its doors in 2017 but has already made an honourable impact in the education space on a national level.

Principal Anthony Simone, who started his career as a teacher 19 years ago, was nominated for the Australian Education Awards 2019 and is one of seven finalists in the School Principal of the Year – Government category.

In a recent Herald Sun article, Mr. Simone said: “To be nominated for this award is wonderful recognition personally, but even more for the community and the families that are currently within our school. To be acknowledged in a national ceremony is … something I am proud of.”

The criteria for winning includes effective leadership and motivation of staff, leadership of innovation and change within the school as well as engagement with parents and the wider school community.

We congratulate Mr. Simone on his nomination and his tireless work for the local community. Harvest Home Primary School is a great asset to Aurora, and this is an achievement the school and our whole community can be very proud of.

Harvest Home Primary School offers education from kindergarten to year 12. To learn more about the school or to enrol, click here.

The Australian Education Awards 2019 will be held on Friday, the 16th of August in Sydney.
