To celebrate 2011's United Nations Public Service day we commissioned three short films entitled Everyday Heroes, to highlight the great work done by the Public Sector.
The films were premiered at a special screening in June and were introduced by Yvonne Henderson, Equal Opportunity Commissioner, who dispelled some prevalent myths regarding the public sector in her opening speech.
Here you can watch our three "Heroes", Eduardo Farate, Tom Kenneally and Elaine Capps, doing what they do best - supporting the community as public servants.
As the Sustainable Forest Management Coordinator for the Wellington District, Tom is known for his painstaking attention to detail and commitment to his team and his job. Tom is also a Bushfire Duty Officer for the Collie Fire & Rescue team, and is working to develop and revolutionise new water transport methods for fighting fires. [Duration 5:38]

Elaine has been with the High School since doors first opened over 16 years ago. [Duration 5:08]
