The Australian Publishers Association has announced its 2019 shortlist of resources to be judged in the 26th Education Publishing Awards Australia. Gracing this list is Physical Education for Queensland Units 1 and 2 Student Book, a textbook penned by past Glennie student, Mrs Crystal Hede, along with local authors Kate Russell and Ron Weatherby.

The awards recognise excellence and innovation within the education publishing industry. From 148 nominations, the text has been shortlisted for two awards in the categories Student Resource – Senior – English/Humanities/Languages/Arts/Technologies/Health and Physical Education and the more general Teaching Resource (Secondary).

Delivering key skills and practical tips, the book provides in-depth and complete coverage of the developing physical education syllabus. The trio has strived to support students and teachers alike, via media articles, case studies, practical sessions, learning pathways and exam preparation tools. They are thrilled to have their textbook recognised for meeting their objectives. Results will be announced at the Awards function in Melbourne in early September.
