Principal Wayne Axford thanked students for their application to their studies and wished them well in their future academic endeavours.
“I encourage you to build on the relationships you already have with your peers, family and other members of society,” he said. “I also encourage you to develop meaningful relationships with people you will meet in the future, whether that be at university, in the workplace or through groups that share a common interest.
“To achieve ongoing success, I encourage you to focus on your goals, be passionate about these goals, work hard at the associated tasks and take pride in what you do.”
Director of International Operations Lisa De’Ceglie said students had adapted to significant changes to learning and teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We hope that the education that you received whether onshore or online has set you up for future studies that will lead to your dream career,” she told students.
“The way you have adapted to the totally unexpected shows that nothing is impossible for you.”
