Melissa Proctor is the 2017 winner of the Teachers Mutual Bank Harvard Scholarship. As the Principal of Bass Hill Public School, she has been in the role for 3 years and in that time has turned the school around so that it is no longer viewed by the community as a school “not to go to”.

L-R: Public Education Foundation Executive Director, David Hetherington, Principal Bass Hill Public School, Melissa Proctor and Teachers Mutual Bank CEO Steve James.

John Goh, Principal of Merrylands East Public School since 2005 and an innovator in education best known for the introduction of new school hours in 2013, was awarded the 2014 scholarship.
Speaking about the award, Mr Goh said: “Being the son of a World War II refugee, and having attended public schools as part of my education, going to Harvard Graduate School seemed like an impossible dream. But this just shows what public education can achieve – supporting students to fulfil their dreams and aspirations.”
