City of Sydney Business Awards 2010

FROEBEL Australia has been announced as Finalist of the City of Sydney Business Awards 2010 on 9 August 2010. We feel honoured to be one of the 5 finalists in the education category - a tremendous success for us and flattering mark of confidence from our parents and supporters, considering that we have only started our business in Australia less than 15 months ago and are still introducing ourselves to the communities.

Five FROEBELians (Pete Heinrich, Renee Fuller, Olde Lorenzen, Jasmine Rivers and Eva Steinmetzer) were invited to attend the festive Gala Dinner, hosted by the City of Sydney's Lord Mayor Clover Moore at The Westin hotel, to celebrate the success together with all other finalists of the Business Awards 2010.
