OTSW – Message from the Head of School, April 2016

Welcome the first edition of our school’s newsletter for 2016.

The year began on a very positive note with our annual prize giving ceremony, which was well attended by industry, graduating students and new students to the school.

You can read about just some of our exciting staff achievements in this edition. The recent launch of the Autism Academy for Software Quality Assurance has been a highlight of the year to date. The Academy is a wonderful demonstration of a university community partnership simultaneously making a difference to the lives of young people with a disability, and meeting the employment needs of industry.

The school was honoured to welcome Ms Freda Jacobs, a pioneer of the Occupational Therapy profession in Western Australia, to the university recently. Ms Jacobs enjoyed chatting with staff and students and touring the school during her visit.

We recently welcomed three new members of staff to the school. Please read on to learn more about our new team members, and other interesting news from our school.
