The SMOGS teacher award policy

The year 2024, will see a change in the SMOGS teacher award policy: the St Mary’s Old Girl’s Association will be rewarding the St Mary’s teachers who have contributed to the school’s 135-year tradition of passionate and purposeful education. The association will be calling for motivations from current staff members who wish to develop professionally by attending a conference or registering for a course in a discipline or field of their choice in 2024. The award will cover the cost of the course or conference. (Please see 2024 SMOGS teacher award document below for further information).

In the past, the Old Girls’ Association offered to cover the costs of tuition for a one year post-graduate certificate in education (PGCE) and simultaneous internship at St Mary’s School.

Previous recipients of the teaching award for a PGCE include: Kendra Smith, Tinhiko Nkuna, Olivia King, Kayleigh Nielson, Emily Dingle, Palesa Panyane
