Good afternoon. Yesterday the State Education Minister, the Hon Sue Ellery, other WA Vice-Chancellors and industry partners, joined a roundtable discussion on the importance of education to the State’s future.
The key themes of discussion included the importance of STEM to WA and the role of universities in preparing our students for the workforce of the future; it was an interesting and timely discussion in the context of our Strategic Vision 2030.
Last night, UWA alumnus and former Deputy Prime Minister Hon Kim Beazley was officially sworn in as WA’s 33rd Governor. Governor Beazley will be a strong advocate for Education in our State and we look forward to engaging with him in this capacity.
