School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine celebrates excellence
The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine held its annual Celebration of Excellence on 31 October 2016. Associate Professor Ravani Duggan, Deputy Head of School, writes that the event was a fantastic success.
The event is of great importance to the school, as it affords an opportunity to acknowledge outstanding students, graduates and staff across all three areas – nursing, midwifery and paramedicine – and in both undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
The function was held at the Technology Park Function Centre, and was well attended by students, their families, industry partners and staff from the school and faculty. Industry partners provided support for many of the prizes awarded to students, and were in attendance to present the prizes.
In addition, the school was also fortunate to have in attendance Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Michael Berndt, Associate Professor Georgina Fyfe, Dean Learning and Teaching, and Director of Student Services Ms Sara Carroll to assist with the presentation of the awards.
The highlight of the afternoon’s event was the address by guest speaker, Mr Jeffery Williams, Director of Nursing at St John of God Midland Public and Private Hospital. Jeffery recounted the stellar career he has had to date and provided sage advice to students and graduates to ensure successful progression across their careers and lives. His words and the sharing of his experiences resonated with all present and were highly valued.
The afternoon’s function ended with the sharing of refreshments, and networking opportunities for attendees. The staff of the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine would like to extend their warmest congratulations to all award winners.
