We are proud to announce that on the 2 June our Artistic Director, Andrew Upton was honoured with the Professional Excellence Award by Rotary eClub One.

Andrew has been recognised for his innovative contribution and positive energy that has enthused the wider community and inspired young people. Going above and beyond his customary duties as Artistic Director of Sydney Theatre Company, Andrew was specifically acknowledged for the development of STC's School Drama  program which provides primary school teachers with a drama pedagogy of quality literature for improving English and literacy in young learners, and through the Greening The Wharf project which is our successful long-term environmental and social sustainability program.

The Professional Excellence Award was instituted by Rotary eClub One in 2005 to honour a person who has demonstrated consistent professional excellence in his or her chosen vocation by contributing to the benefit of the wider community beyond their typical workplace role. The award has been presented annually to professionals in Australia, Spain, The United Kingdom and in the United States.

Congratulations Andrew!
