Wanganui Park Secondary College teacher recognised

Shepparton’s Wanganui Park Secondary College teacher Mr Kerry Short has received national recognition at the 2008 Australian Government National Awards for Quality Schooling, Federal Member for Murray the Hon Dr Sharman Stone said today.

“The Award was given at a special ceremony held in the Great Hall of Parliament House. Principal Keith Gray was also there to represent the great achievements of the school.

“The National Awards for Quality Schooling recognise the outstanding effort of teachers and schools across the nation in seven different categories.

“Kerry was awarded a Highly Commended National Achievement Award in the Excellence by a Teacher category. Kerry has provided inspirational guidance to photography students at Wanganui. He has encouraged and nurtured the students to develop their creative skills in the use of photography leading on to careers and opportunities for national recognition of their work.

“Kerry has made a significant impact on student academic progress and social development through his commitment and passion,” Sharman Stone said.

“I congratulate Kerry Short for his great personal efforts and commend Wanganui Park Secondary College for having a teacher recipient of a National Quality Schooling award for the second year in a row.
