One way TAG Oil is pleased to support our community is by helping to refurbish Ngaere School’s Lowgarth Hall with a $5,000 a year award for the next five years. This year’s grant went towards upgrading the lighting and heating systems. Though New Zealand is in the midst of summer, they’re looking ahead, and this work will make the Hall much more comfortable for the many groups that use it year-round. In addition, the upgrades will reduce the amount of energy used, and the school’s power bills.
In other community news, TAG awarded its first annual scholarship to Matt Simpson, a senior at Stratford High School. Matt was selected to receive the scholarship out of a worthy field of candidates based on his impressive academic career as well as his interest in pursuing an engineering or sciences degree. He’s spending his summer working at TAG Oil’s Cheal A site, gaining some first-hand oil and gas experience prior to going to the University of Canterbury.
Whether you’re rounding the bend towards shorter nights and warmer days, or celebrating your longest day of the year in the southern hemisphere, happy holidays and all the best for your new year.
