Bathurst student Rezvan Abedi has been honoured for her academic achievement and outstanding work ethic at the 2018 TAFE NSW Excellence Awards in Mudgee.
Ms Abedi, who completed a Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care at TAFE NSW in Bathurst in 2017, was announced as the winner of the prestigious Trainee of the Year Award at a gala awards ceremony at Blue Wren Winery yesterday.
TAFE NSW Regional General Manager Kate Baxter commended Ms Abedi for not only being an outstanding student, but the important role she’s playing in educating children at the Mitchell Early Learning Centre in Bathurst.
“These awards are a great opportunity to recognise our most passionate, industrious and skilful students. It’s very gratifying to see these students grow and transform their lives through education, with TAFE NSW equipping them with practical skills and work experience that ensures they are job ready,” Ms Baxter said.
“Rezvan demonstrated a strong commitment to her training from the first day she enrolled at TAFE NSW. This commitment is matched daily at Mitchell Early Learning Centre, where her creativity and passion has seen her quickly become a huge asset to the centre and very popular with the children there.”
Ms Abedi was nominated for the award by TAFE NSW Children’s Services teacher Marney Lynch, who believes the recognition is thoroughly deserved.
“Rezvan has a kind, caring and gentle nature which shines through in her every day work. She is skillful, dedicated and extremely hard working,” Mrs Lynch said.
“From a teaching point of view Rezvan is always a pleasure to deal with. She’s willing and eager to learn new skills and put them into practice, and it was my privilege to endorse Rezvan’s nomination.”
