Remembering Ian Gaynor


Dear ECAWA members,

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of Ian Gaynor.

Ian was always available to give advice and assistance to teachers, and helped shape computing education in WA.

I can’t remember a time as a teacher where Ian didn’t have a presence. His advice was always thoughtful, considered and friendly. I’m confident many Western Australian teachers would feel the same.

Ian will be sadly missed by all who knew him as a kind and gentle person, and a man of great wisdom, integrity and patience.

The Educational Computing Association of Western Australia extends very sincere condolences to Ian’s wife and family.

Michael King
