QT Mutual Bank and RACQ is honoured to support Queensland teachers and we couldn’t be prouder to run Staffroom for Improvement again in 2017 for the seventh time. This is our way of showing our appreciation for the teaching community and for all they do for our school communities.
What’s Staffroom for Improvement all about?
The Staffroom for Improvement competition is all about allowing students, mums and dads, family members and the broader school community to show our Queensland teachers just how much we value and appreciate them.
This year, we show our appreciation for our teachers by giving daily tokens of appreciation. Each token given will be added to the schools total. The school with the most tokens will win a $20,000 staffroom makeover. Of course terms and conditions do apply and you will find those here.
The competition will run for 9 days from 9am Thursday 24 August 2017 to 12noon, Friday 1 September 2017. Tokens can be given each day of the competition with extra tokens given when participates complete quests and share the competition with a friend.
It’s fair for schools of all sizes
We work behind the scenes to ensure the competition is fair for schools of all sizes. As you can see below, previous winners have differed in size and we’re been proud to support these five Queensland schools.
Prizes on offer
This year, there are great prizes on offer. These include:
- 1x $20,000 staffroom makeover
- 3x $1,000 runners-up prizes
- Additional prizes throughout the competition on Facebook
Keep an eye on our QT Mutual Bank Facebook page for prize draws and competitions throughout the 11 days of competition.
Information for Parents
Hello mums and dads (and aunties, uncles, grandmas, grandpas, carers, friends and neighbours)! If you’re not sure what Staffroom for Improvement is all about, a minute or two reading here will make everything clear for you.
There’s no question, we all value the work teachers do. It’s a unique opportunity we have to thank them for it in a way that is 100% focused on them and it’s for this reason QT Mutual Bank and RACQ is running this competition for the seventh year. Yes, there is a staffroom makeover on offer, but we’ve seen firsthand the real benefit of the Staffroom for Improvement, how powerfully it works to bring teachers, school staff, students, parents and the broader school community together. Spend a few minutes watching the story of Windsor State School (2014 winners) or seeing the difference the makeover made to 2016 winners Goombungee State School here and you’ll see what we mean!
As a member-owned mutual bank and Queensland’s largest club, transparency is just part of the way we do things. So yes, if you are an adult, we would like to send you some information from time to time about things like our very competitive home and car loans, or the benefits of becoming a member of a club that genuinely cares about the community. We promise not to be too annoying, and if you'd like to stop receiving such materials, it only takes a moment to click the ‘opt out’ button.
