The Theo Ruckert Schools Enterprise Education Award
This award is to honour in memoriam a highly respected educator, motivator, leader and inspirer, Theo Ruckert.
It is due to Theo's passion and dedication that WRED has been an ongoing success since 1997, impacting over 3000 students.
As a Teacher and Deputy Principal of western suburb state schools for many years, Theo could see the benefits for students from days such as these. In addition, Theo was heavily involved in the community, he gave his time and knowledge to many community groups, including Rotary, St John's Anglican Church and of course the WRED. His leadership, passion and inspiration will be sadly missed, but it is these qualities we draw upon to continue the success of this program.
