Decades spent improving education in Western Australia and across the country has been recognised with former National Catholic Education Commission chair Therese Temby today being named an officer in the General Division of the Order of Australia (AO).
Mrs Temby had a long and distinguished career in education – as a teacher, a librarian, a finance officer, a state Catholic education director, a National Catholic Education Commissioner and as chair of the NCEC for five years, from 2008 to 2013.
While her work covered both government and Catholic education, Mrs Temby was involved with the Catholic school system for almost 40 years.

The education debate in Australia should focus on improving learning opportunities in all schools. Test results are best used by teachers and parents to improve student learning, not by commentators to pit sector against sector.
That’s the message from National Catholic Education Commission executive director Ross Fox, who says that trying to label one education sector – Catholic, independent or public – as superior to the others distracts people from the priorities
of school education.
