HERDSMANS Cove resident and Groundsman at Herdsmans Cove Primary School, Steven Bennett was presented with the Tasplan Together We Inspire award at the 2018 Department of Education awards event last month.
The humble, yet dedicated, groundsman at Herdsman Cove Primary School was chosen from the finalists in this year’s awards because of his commitment to the students, the school and the community that goes above and beyond his groundsman role. Steven is an outstanding positive a role model to both parents and students in the area and demonstrates team work and a strong work ethic. He takes pride in the school and also his own work.
Through his contribution to the breakfast program and with the student football and soccer program, Steven has become a champion for the community and students.
This year he constructed and built the playground area and garden areas, and he often undertakes maintenance, painting, building, bricklaying and repairs to an exceptional standard.
Congratulations to Steven on this well-deserved award.
The 12 award categories provide the Department with an opportunity to recognise and reward staff and volunteers who demonstrate excellence in their roles in supporting public education.
