Peg White Award

…….for commitment to Education and intercultural understanding

This award honours the late Doctor Margaret (Peg) White OAM – founding member, past president and life member of the Asia Education Teachers’ Association (AETA).

Peg’s scholarship made an outstanding, sustained and visionary contribution to education, the promotion of Asian studies and intercultural understanding in Australian schools for over forty years. Peg’s dedication and commitment to an intercultural education is seen through the lives of her husband Cec, children Lynette, Robert and Fiona, and their families, along with the many members of AETA and others who continue to read Peg’s books; use Peg’s teaching and learning materials, teach courses Peg championed, remember Peg’s lectures and strive, as Peg did, for the common aim of a peaceful and respectful world.

The Peg White Award celebrates and continues Peg’s legacy.

Each recipient of the Award will have demonstrated a commitment to education (about studies of Asia) and to intercultural understanding through either their professional practice, their direct instruction of students, or through the use in education of resources they have produced for the purpose.
