Retirement Function for Wayne Powell - Industrial Arts Teacher

Thursday, 9th June 2011

Wayne PowellAfter 28 years of teaching at Whitebridge High School Wayne Powell is retiring. He has been an integral member of the Industrial Arts department as a classroom teacher and acting head teacher. Throughout this period he has accepted the challenges these roles provide and has gained the respect of all of his colleagues and students. His willingness to share his knowledge and expertise has enabled many students to achieve exceptional results. Wayne’s involvement in the setting and marking of HSC exams with the Board of Studies has also provided a great opportunity for broadening everyone’s perspective.

The students and staff, past and present, have recognised his efforts by awarding him with a perpetual trophy which was presented to him by former student (soon to be Industrial Arts teacher) Briana Ritchie on behalf of the Ex Students & Staff Association.  Congratulations on a wonderful career and we all wish you well in your retirement.

A formal send-off was held in the Common Room at the school on Thursday 9th June (photo gallery attached - click on the green View button above) and a social gathering at the nearby Central Leagues Club was held on the Friday afternoon.

The Rotary Club of Charlestown - Charity Golf Day

Monday, 2nd March 2009

Recently, at very short notice, The Rotary Club of Charlestown, were given the opportunity to run an annual Charity Golf Day at the Merewether Golf Club (on the first Monday in March each year). They generously decided that the major beneficiary would be Whitebridge High School through the establishment of an ongoing student scholarship fund. The promotional literature is available for viewing for your information, with perhaps a greater involvement by the school and it’s ex student and staff body in coming years.

Sponsorship and information letter,

Registration form

A great day of golf was had by some 100 participants, and the evening dinner, presentations, raffles and auctions, expertly conducted by the organizing committee, provided a wonderful conclusion to the day. Apart from the truly excellent golfing prizes awarded, details of the extensive and worthwhile raffle and auction prizes are available for your information. A listing of the businesses who sponsored the day are listed in appreciation and acknowledgement. A letter of appreciation was received from Charlestown Rotary indicating in excess of $10,000 was raised!

The Ex Students and Staff Association extend our sincere thanks and hearty congratulations to all involved!

Make a note in your diary for next year to support this great initiative of our local Rotary Club of Charlestown.
