Jennifer Watts, NSW Teacher Librarian and member of the Hub Think Tank, has been presented with the 2008 ASLA NSW John Hirst Award for outstanding service to teacher librarianship, school libraries and teacher librarians.

Congratulations Jennifer!!

As a Victorian, I didn’t know much about this award, so I checked out the ASLA NSW website to find out more.

John Hirst was instrumental in establishing the New South Wales School Library Association.   The John Hirst Award recognises exceptional excellence in leadership and/ or service to the profession in New South Wales school libraries.

While perusing former winners, I discovered that hubber Georgia was presented with this same award in 2002.  It seems I am in illustrious company. I’m sure if investigated, I might discover a few more accolades amongst our group.  As for me, I was my school’s Year 9 spelling champion in 1985.  No certificate given, so you’ll just have to take my word for it.
