That’s a wrap, SP5 finished and now the anxious wait for results, I can’t believe how quickly the year has gone. I really hope everyone is successful and takes a well-earned break ready to do it all again next year, congratulations to those who have finished their studies, you can be really proud of your achievements.
Huge congrats to young mum-of-two, Hayley, who has become our first Aboriginal student to complete the Aboriginal Pathway Program, supporting students with no previous qualifications for university study. Hayley will transition into a Bachelor of Social Work in 2018.
Thank you to all those who came out on Saturday 25th November to farewell our year, great to see the children have fun and get to see the dolphins up close, something Whyalla should be proud of, people pay big money to have that experience, and we have it on our doorstep. Continue being awesome and making our uni experience great, after all no one else will make it awesome but us.
Having studied education for the past three years and learning how we should treat students, I feel the university have some work to do, the ability to make a difference to each student, never giving up on any student, ensuring care and guidance is given addressing individual needs, these are the qualities of teaching and I really hope the University can articulate and act upon their educational philosophy to align with other great University institutions such as Melbourne University and the National Institute of Education in Singapore.
Have a lovely break and see you in the new year.
