Murray Giles Little MA, the forgotten one

Murray Giles Little MA, the forgotten one

Tuesday, 18 October 2016

Murray Giles Little is a name that doesn’t readily come up in conversation or in print when scholars or historians refer to prominent educators in Western Australia. Nor, for that matter, is Mr. Little mentioned in the annals of The University of Western Australia (UWA), where he studied. Sometimes, even when a particular person rises through the ranks to become the Western Australian Director of Education between1940-50, he can slip through the cracks.

I first met Dr John Fall in February 1976 having arrived fresh from Fiji as an undergraduate student. Like any typical international student, I was home sick, having never left Fiji before. I met Dr Fall on Sunday 22 February at dinner, my second day in Australia. He became a lifelong friend, mentor, teacher and inspiration.

Thursday, 23 June 2016

The committee hit the ground running and started to plan for Semester one OWeek activities two months ahead of time.

2016 kicked off in one of the best ways possible for the freshers. On arrival, they received their first college shirt, the fresher shirt, designed by our publication and communications officer and what I’d like to say is one of the best fresher packs yet with many goodies inside.
