The History of the Foster Adem Award
DATTA Vic is honoured that our Leadership in Technologies Education Award is named after Foster Adem.
In 2001 Foster joined Trinity Grammar School as their first Head of the Design & Technology Faculty, where he remined until his retirement in 2016. Sadly he passed away in August 2017.
In the words of his friend and colleague Peter, Foster was an active DATTA member, bringing a wealth of experience from Industry and many schools...He will be greatly missed.
