The Benchmark Award is given each year to one teacher who has made a difference in the lives of our students. The Winner for 2016 is our Teacher in Charge, Design and Technology, Damien Uren.
Damien is an inspirational teacher. He builds self confidence in our young people enthusing them to feel proud of their practical skills, to work cooperatively in a team environment preparing them well, either for industry or to use their transferable life skills. The increasing number of students choosing courses in the Design & Technology Learning Area is directly attributable to Damien’s positive influenc,e both in his own classes and across his team of fellow D&T teachers.
Damien is a worthy recipient of the Benchmark Award for 2016 and we thank Peter Stewart from Benchmark Consultants for their support of this award over the past years.
