The Infants' Home congratulates Gorton House Educator Nicky Roditis for being awarded the Pride of Workmanship Award by Strathfield Rotary last night.
Nicky was recognized for her passion and hard work to support children and families from vulnerable backgrounds. Nicky works tirelessly to ensure that all children are included in our programs, and also brings the community together to raise awareness about challenges faced by children and families. For example, when a number of children in Gorton House were experiencing significant medical issues, Nicky organised a hospital party to support children's understanding of hospitals, health and medical assistance. She also organised visits to children who could not attend TIH due to illness, to ensure children's friendships and shared experiences continued.
In nominating Nicky for the award, TIH's CEO Anita Kumar said:
"Nicky epitomises the values of The Infants’ Home in embracing integrity, collaboration, diversity and innovation in her everyday activities. The Infants’ Home is a 140 year old organisation, one of Sydney’s longest running charities with a rich history and would not be in existence if not for staff like Nicky."
The Pride of Workmanship Program enables managers in our society to help employees achieve the goal of job satisfaction, and publicly recognise them for their efforts. Nominations are made for employees worthy of recognition, not only within the organisation, but the wider community.
