Amaroo School Teacher Librarian Natalie Otten co-created AMSTUDY - a program to allow teachers and students to access the school’s library after hours.

The program resulted in a 21% increase in student submission of work across the school.

Natalie is also an integral member of the Cultural Inclusivity Team, who collaborate with the school community and local Indigenous families.

Natalie’s efforts to promote literacy and cultural inclusivity led to her being recognised as the 2019 Early Childhood and Primary Teacher of the Year at the ACT Public Education Awards.
