The 2017 school term will see 270 new teachers and staff commence work within the ACT public school system.
ACT Education Minister Yvette Berry officially welcomed the latest cohort at Hedley Beare Centre for Teaching and Learning.
She said ACT students were in safe hands.
“We want to make sure ACT families and children have the best possible and the highest quality educators that we can find,” Ms Berry said.
“This event today is about giving them a warm welcome into our community. Whether they have moved here from interstate, another school or another job, and provide them with all the support that we can in this new role.”
Fairfax Media reported the 270 new staff entering the ACT Education directorate in teaching, support roles and positions was lower than the intake of 350 the previous year.
