Real-life super hero at Majura PS19-06-2012
Majura PS’ very own Garden Specialist, Rik Allen, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the School Hero category of the 2012 ACT Public Education Excellence Awards.
Here’s an excerpt from his nomination for the award:
Rik has been employed on a part-time basis for the past two and a half years and in that time has shown commitment to the students, the garden and the school community far over and above what would be expected of anyone in the position. His enthusiasm, dedication and approachability has made the experience of the program for students, teachers and parents a special and enriching one.
Rik has shown a huge capacity to reach all children at the school, and in particular has devoted lots of time to children who are struggling in other areas of school life. As a result of Rik’s friendly and open approach, he is widely respected and liked by students at the school.
The Education and Training Directorate is hosting the Public Education Excellence Awards ceremony and cocktail function on Friday 22 June 2012 from 6pm to 8pm, at the Hedley Beare Centre for Teaching and Learning, where the shortlisted nominees and winners will be announced.
Good luck to Rik and everyone at Majura PS – what a fantastic acknowledgement of your work.
