Gerringong’s Shane Wicks has been presented with the Public School Parent of the Year Award by the Public Education Foundation.
“Mr Wicks is the President of the Gerringong Public School P&C and has devoted his time for over 10 years,” says Gareth Ward MP.
“Shane has raised an impressive amount of money which has been spent on improving the library into an interactive learning space and provided K-2 engine room tables for the effective learning of literacy.”
It was noted he has influenced and improved many areas of the school from introducing a healthy choice canteen to fitting out classrooms with iPads, Smart TVs and interactive whiteboards to ensure learning is accessible and up to date with current technology.
“He is a terrific example of some of the great things that are happening in our public education system across our region,” says Mr Ward.
