TAFE NSW students were recently recognised for their achievements at
an awards event in Coffs Harbor.
Awards of merit and excellence were handed out to students across a
variety of courses. Study areas included aged-care, business and
accounting, construction trades along with the more specialised areas
of study such as furniture design and visual arts.
Megan Hill, the Leader, Community and Business Engagement for TAFE
NSW in Coffs Harbour beamed about the award winners.
"It's amazing to see so many of our students acknowledged by
their teachers for the efforts each put into their study". Hill
told the Bellingen Courier-Sun.
"These recipients demonstrated a quality approach to their
education and reflect attributes sought after by industry. Coupled
with awards of merit and awards of excellence, a select few students
were presented with major awards".
Dominic Elmaloglou had an especially great evening. The apprentice
chef and Certificate III Commercial Cookery student took home the
awards for apprentice of the year and overall student of the year.
"My teachers at the Coffs Harbour Education Campus have been
extremely supportive of me throughout my studies and I hope to open my
own establishment after I finish my apprenticeship. It's never too
late to start something in life", said Elmaloglou.
