Galletly Award for Leadership, Initiative and Innovation

Jared Munn

This award is for a Year 9 or Year 10 student showing attributes and reflecting the College Values of Pride, Quality and Respect in their actions at College.

Melvin Galletly was Head Boy at Ashburton College in 1974.

Jared was part of the Year 10Y Innovation Class which produced Māori business products, with the profits from sales going to Kai for Kids.  Jared was a leader within his business group, motivating and supporting others through various setbacks to see the products to completion.  He was prepared to make decisions under pressure and showed a tremendous work ethic throughout.

Despite only being a Year 10 student, Jared leads the College Student Technical Crew which runs the sound, lighting and staging in the College Auditorium.  Jared's work supports College events, shows and assemblies, but he has also supported groups from the community who have used the Auditorium.  One example of this was the Wakanui School production where Jared was given a request to turn the lights off at the start and on at the end.  However, Jared took the initiative to plot a lighting plan, complete with cues for the entire show, giving the cast a professional lighting display to highlight their show.  Jared interacted professionally with the adults involved in the production, and they praised Jared's work as "beyond expectations".  Jared's expertise in lighting has also seen him volunteer to support the Mid Canterbury Summer Singing School production in the Ashburton Trust Event Centre.

Jared is a proud supporter of activities that support our Māori students, having participated in Wānanga and supporting our speakers at Manu Kōrero earlier this year.

In attaining this award Oliva also gained the following awards -

  • Ashburton College Technical Crew Prize for Service and Contribution to Technical Support in the College Auditiorium
  • Excellence in Product Design Hard Materials: Metal
  • AshColl Way Award
