JCQTA holds an annual Forum in August also incorporates the AGM of the Association. From 2012 the forum will be known as the Ros Korkatzis Forum in memory of Ros who was a founding member of the JCQTA.
Ros Korkatzis 1944 – 2011
JCQTA extends its sympathy to the friends, family and colleagues of ex officio member, Ros Korkatzis, who passed away on Monday 16 May after a short illness. Ros was the former President of the Queensland History Teachers’ Association and the History Teachers’ Association of Australia. She was one of the Qld Study Authority’s most valued partners in the curriculum areas of History and Studies of Society and Environment and had been involved with JCQTA since 1993.
Ros was a staunch advocate for producing the best quality curriculum and assessment products, and providing support for teachers and students. At a national level she advocated for the principles and benefits of Queensland’s education system. Her professionalism, humour and friendship will be sorely missed by all who had the good fortune to work with her.
