Oops, a couple more awards…

But this time it’s for our only staff member that’s still at high school. We’re really pleased to congratulate Daniel ‘The Kid’ Wylie for his recent sweep in computing awards at Wellington High School’s prize giving.

Daniel picked up two Certificates of Excellence; one for Information Science and the other for Digital Media. He then went on to receive the big Kahuna – or the Top Award in Computing – The Brooker Award.

Daniel works at Xero five days a week after school – he is truly dedicated to helping everyone at Xero, whether it be salvaging hardware, building our computers or running security disks. And he’s obviously got a healthy bright future in front of him… or else a gap year!

Congrats Daniel!
