2016 Prime Minister's Education Excellence Awards (NZ)

Dear Vienna,

I am writing to you to thank you for all your work on the recent Prime Minister's Education Excellence Awards. Thanks to the efforts of you and your team, the awards were a huge success, and a credit to the many hours and weekend work you contributed to make this happen.

The awards programme was managed, coordinated and delivered with total professionalism. I have no doubt that occasions like this, where we get to acknowledge and recognise excellence, make a real difference for both our young people, and for people associated with or working in the education system.

Thank you once again for your work, and for helping to deliver such a great programme.

Kind regards

Peter Hughes
Secretary for Education
Ministry of Education, New Zealand
