More than Prize Lists: Head Teachers, Student Prize Winners, School Ceremonies and Educational Promotion in Colonial South Australia
Young, Marisa
International Education Journal, v8 n2 p49-59 Nov 2007
Australian educators now operate in environments that frequently stress marketing activities. This article highlights the ways that colonial school prize ceremonies were deliberately developed to promote teaching activities. These ceremonies were part of carefully considered strategies that helped to boost the status of entrepreneurial teachers who had taken the risk of establishing their own private educational ventures. Private school promotional techniques were extremely influential because they were also used to extend the growth of government-supported and corporate schools as well as cultural activities in Australia's colonial civil society.
