Teacher ready for new material

Lois Hennes and Tony Simeon at Lois farewell to teaching function.

Last Friday Wollongbar TAFE teacher Lois Hennes finally hung up her pinking shears after 42 years of teaching fashion.

Speaking at her farewell function Lois said, looking around the room at other teachers, theyd all fought hard for something in their careers.

Being a teacher, one of the most important things is knowing when to pick your battles, Lois said. Ive always taken the teaching role seriously. TAFE is about making sure people get a second chance and pulling people through.

Lois plans to continue her career in pattern engineering, a subject on which she has recently co-written a book.
