Earlier in the year ACHPER WA board member Elisabeth Francis, recently received a 2016 Professional Teaching Council of Western Australia (PTCWA) Outstanding Professional Service Award.
We congratulate Lis on her fantastic achievement, a summary of her nomination is below:
” Lis Francis has been a member of ACHPER since January 1972 (44 years) and has served on the ACHPER WA State Board since 1993. She has held various positions on the board, and was an active writer for several resources produced by ACHPER WA to support the teaching of HPE.
While teaching, Lis was a strong advocate for the objectives of ACHPER by acting as a mentor to teachers both in her school and to teachers at schools within the education district in which she worked. She was invited to sit on the Department of Education and Training Physical Activity Advisory Group and was awarded the national award of Fellow of ACHPER in 2007.
Lis’s commitment both to her professional association and to the focus areas of health and physical education is both exemplary and long standing and has continued well passed her retirement from teaching.”
