The PSA and your federal union, the CPSU SPSF, want to acknowledge the value and recognise the contribution of SAS Staff teams and the vital work you do every day.
That is why in addition to Recognition Week this year we are running National SAS Staff Team of the Year Awards.
We want to recognise and thank SAS Staff teams (small or large), who work so hard to support students, teachers and parents and to support each other to ensure a fair workplace where workers are supported and respected.
Your team includes all staff at your school who are eligible to be PSA members including SAS Staff, General Assistants, Psychologists and Business Managers. So join up your colleagues and get nominating!
It’s easy to join online HERE.
Anyone can nominate a team whose members’ contribution should be recognised. Simply supply an example in a few short paragraphs of how the team is working to make their school better. Stories should demonstrate the union values of fairness, equality and solidarity.
Nominations close 5 July.
The State and National winners will be announced during SAS Staff Recognition Week (see below).
The prizes are intended to be shared by the team members as a celebration of the contribution of SAS Staff teams to their schools and to school students, teachers and parents.
The National Prize is a Red Balloon voucher worth $1500 for the team to spend on a group activity with the union members in their workplace.

Recognition Week is coming up soon
Recognition Week is not far away and the PSA will be again promoting the wonderful work you do and encouraging the school community to recognise you and thank you.
Back in the early 2000s the PSA launched the first ever SAS staff Recognition Week which is still going strong today!
Recognition Week this year will be 26-30 August. Let your Principal and P&C know the Recognition Week dates so they can plan a thank you for the SAS staff.
