Big thanks going to all staff and students at Port Macquarie campus who are doing such a fabulous job looking after our firefighters. Over 200 moved onto the Port Macquarie campus over the weekend. Staff and students have worked around the clock to support them and make sure they have the food and supplies they need to be able to carry on the amazing job they are doing to protect the people and homes in the Port Macquarie region. The fires have been devastating and with catastrophic weather conditions forecast for Tuesday everyone is reminded to take care and be vigilant. It is fabulous to be able to help support efforts to contain the fires and heartfelt thanks to everyone involved.
Speaking of Port Macquarie, huge congratulations to two of our Port-based Psychology lecturers, Phil Birch and Donnah Anderson, who recently received citations for their outstanding contributions to teaching from the Australian College of Educators at their World Teachers’ Day ceremony. The guest speaker, Andrew Vann, can be seen here with Phil and Donnah at a very smokey Port Macquarie vineyard!
