On Tuesday the 19th of March the Vice Chancellor’s Welcome Dinner for Wright Village saw over 200 people attend the evening at the Wright Centre. Hosted by the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Jim Barber and Deputy Vice Chancellor Geoff Fox as well as the Mayor Cr Jim Maher, community volunteers, management from the International Office, student representatives and Wright Village students and staff. Prof. Barber took the opportunity to welcome the new management team at Wright Village with the appointment of a new Residential Life Manager, Ms. Caroline Pflaumer-Winter, and Office Manager David Snell. There will also be a new Academic in Residence appointed in the near future. We hope to be building on the strengths of “the Village”.
Wright Village is host to students from all over Australia and from all parts of the globe. Residents were encouraged to wear traditional dress to celebrate their cultures.
The dinner was a great way to come together as a college and to celebrate our diversity.
