Good morning. I was delighted to experience a real buzz about the University last week with many students on campus taking part in O-Week activities. Thank you to all staff for the efforts you have made to welcome new members to the UWA community. These events are a wonderful introduction to university life for our students as they begin their journey of discovery which we hope will lead them to exciting new knowledge, new friendships and fulfilling careers.
As we welcome a new group of students who will be with us for the next few years, it is also time to bid farewell to others. We pause to mark and celebrate a significant milestone in the lives of those students who will have their degrees conferred at a graduation ceremony in the fortnight commencing 7 March 2017. For them it is the culmination of years of hard work and sacrifice and we take this opportunity to wish all our graduates the very best in their future endeavours.
