The Outdoor Education Group recently hosted its annual ‘Hewison Golden Backpacker Awards’ night, a formal evening that celebrates each and every one of our staff and the work of our organisation. There wasn’t a hiking boot in sight as our New South Wales staff primped and preened for their celebration in Moss Vale. Our Victorian colleagues looked equally dapper as they held their celebration in Eildon.
Seven awards made up the presentation part of the evening and these are awarded to staff voted for by their peers. Of those awards Camp Wombaroo did exceptionally well, with four of the seven awards going to the following:
- Educator of the Year: Meghan Fuery
- Employee of the Year: Kevin Stott
- Excellence Award: Moyra Douglas
- Hewison Award for Partnerships and Innovation: Stuart Whyte
Congratulations to all the nominees and award winners!
