Last week the University recognised its highest achieving athletes at the annual Blues awards, a tradition that stretches back to 1921.
These awards are considered the highest honour universities can bestow upon outstanding student athletes for not only their athletic abilities but their contributions to the university and their respective clubs throughout the year.
Ian Fitzpatrick, UWA Sport General Manager says the Blues are a worldwide university sporting tradition, and one of the most prestigious at UWA.
Nominations are being called for election to the honorary positions of the Warden of Convocation, the Deputy Warden of Convocation and seven members of the Council of Convocation, and one member of Senate. The current office holders of these positions complete their term in March 2018 and all are eligible for re-election.
Nominations for these positions close on Monday 4 December at midday.
When Matthew Fraser moved to Perth from Glasgow in 2006 he never imagined a trip to the Great Barrier Reef would set the direction for a career as a marine scientist.
It’s fair to say it didn’t take long for the Glaswegian to be captivated by our coastline and everything the Western Australian lifestyle has to offer, sparking a passion for Australia’s diverse and unique marine ecosystems.
He’s also passionate about the access West Australian’s have to our beautiful beaches, which led him to UWA to complete a degree in marine science.
