Nici Green (MA Hons, First Class; Dip. Teaching) - Teacher and Colleague

On Friday, 16 December, Nici Green passed away following her courageous struggle with cancer.

Nici served the Western Springs College community for six years since her appointment in 2006. She was a highly esteemed teacher respected by students and colleagues alike.

Nici taught English, Media Studies and Art History. Her students greatly appreciated her extensive professional knowledge and her active dedication to their learning. They considered it to be their very good fortune to be placed in one of her classes.

Nici's fellow teachers valued her leadership. They took confidence from having her represent them as the staff representative on the board of trustees and on the executive of the branch of the teachers' association (NZPPTA). They did so because of their awareness of her consistently principled stance on all significant issues.

Nici loved teaching at Springs; Springs loved having her. She will not be forgotten.
