Anne Pennington Award

What is the Anne Pennington Award?

Since 2005 an award has been presented to learners in Adult Learners’ Week to honour the memory of Anne Pennington, who died on Christmas Eve in 2004.

Anne was a highly respected and much loved staff member of The Centre, and before that of Forum, Benalla. On her resignation due to ill health in 2004, the Board of Governance decided that an award would be named in her honour, to acknowledge her contributions to adult learning and her many strengths and qualities as a person.

In developing the award it was decided that
– learning should be understood in the broadest possible sense
– the criteria for the award should reflect some of Anne’s strengths and qualities
