Good morning. The development of Forrest Hall is near completion and I’m pleased to share we will soon open this state-of-the-art facility. Top scholars from around the world are beginning to arrive in Perth and will start moving into the accommodation next week; an environment we hope will generate energy and inspiration as they strive to achieve outstanding results.
Our students are tomorrow’s leaders and groundbreaking researchers, all working towards making a positive impact on society. I want to congratulate PhD students Ryan Bunney from ICRAR and Sabrina Davies from the Faculty of Science who have each been awarded a Westpac Future Leaders Scholarship. This program supports exceptional individuals, chosen for their potential to make a difference to Australia and is a testament to the talent and drive of our students.
