We are celebrating this below.

National Technology Educator 2015
Our wonderful Head of Technology Faculty, Marietjie Van Schalkwyk, has been honoured with the National Technology Educator of New Zealand 2015 award.
This is a very prestigious and highly esteemed award and acknowledges outstanding contribution to technology curriculum education. This is the second year that a WHS Technology Faculty staff member has received this award. This is unprecedented as there has never been two educators awarded this from the same school.
Congratulations, Mrs Van!
