Together with the Otago Polytechnic, Cook Brothers Apprentice Academy are thrilled to award Greg and Jonathan this year's Supercharged Award! Congratulations to you both.

Read on for these Apprentices' accolades and nominations from the Polytechnic. 



"This award is going to an individual who has so much respect from his classmates. He is very keen to learn every single aspect of every task and is like a sponge who takes in everything you say. He works so well within a team environment but works just as well with individual tasks. He isn't afraid to try something new and trouble shoots well. He has a bright future in the industry." 



"It's an honor to recognise his exceptional journey in carpentry over the last year. Jonathan's commitment to safety has been unwavering, creating an environment that prioritises well-being for everyone involved. Consistent attendance, a positive attitude toward work and learning, and his ability to thrive within a team have set a standard for dedication and collaboration. Jonathan's improvement over the year has been remarkable, a testament to his hard work and commitment to constant growth.

Celebrating the success of the team has been a highlight of his contributions. His enthusiasm and support have amplified the achievements of the entire Carpentry team. His willingness to try new ideas, come up with solutions, and overcome obstacles showcases a spirit of innovation and resilience that will serve him well in his future endeavours.

As he graduates, he will carry these values of safety, attendance, positive attitude, teamwork, continuous improvement, celebrating success and embracing innovation with him. They are not just the foundations of carpentry excellence but the pillars for success in any endeavour."
