Focus on our Technology Technician Treasure
A Technology faculty treasure we’d like to share this month comes in the form of Bill Boulton – our terrific technician.
Now a kiwi, Bill originates from England with training and experience in engineering & design. Interestingly though, since the early eighties Bill crossed over into teaching. (The author was a student of Bill’s at Tauranga Intermediate as well as our Head of Faculty. He was awesome then too.)
Aquinas College has been lucky to have Bill since 2010 – teaching the Year 7’s; then moving to his current position in support – as Technician. He also is our resident expert in electronics and TIG welding, providing professional development to both teachers and students alike.
Part-time, Bill completes the precutting; the maintenance of all the workshop equipment (such as the bandsaw, circular saw, thicknesser, welders, CNC machine, drills, mills & lathes, as well as all the electrical equipment & testing.)
Even though he is sweet enough; Bill loves his lollies!
Bill, you legend; our legend. Thank you for all that you do here at Aquinas College.
