Personal Excellence: staff and students excel

Friday, 17 July 2009


I have been pleased this week to hear of the achievements of several students and staff.

ECU student wins gold

Congratulations to communications student Luke Quinlivan on his gold medal in the Australian Men's Water Polo at the World University Summer Games held in Belgrade, Serbia this month.

Luke played the crucial role of goal-keeper in the team that defeated tournament favourites Croatia 6-4 in the final match.

I am delighted ECU was able to support Luke in his endeavour, and I wish him on-going success at the upcoming World Water Polo Championships in Rome, Italy.

Mike Gavin recognised for leadership in OHS

ECU's Manager of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), Mike Gavin, has been awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the Australasian University Safety Association.  Mike was recognised for his pioneering and continued leadership in positive performance benchmarking of OHS management.

Congratulations to Mike on this official acknowledgement  of his expertise, commitment and passion in this area.

ECU Student Health Services renew important accreditation.

ECU's Student Health Services have recently renewed their accreditation with Australian General Practices Accreditation Limited (AGPAL).

The renewal of this accreditation required a 12 month commitment on behalf of the Student Health Services team, to ensure correct implementation of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) Standards for General Practices, the nationally recognised standard for the assessment of general practice.

Congratulations to Dr Rob Chandler and his team on this significant achievement, which demonstrates their commitment to continuously improving the level of service offered to the ECU community.

ECU Open Day this Sunday

I'd like to remind all staff and students that on Sunday our Joondalup Campus is opening its doors to our community.

I encourage you all to attend, and to draw this exciting event to the attention of your family and friends.

A day such as this requires an enormous amount of planning, and then further commitment on the actual day itself. I thank all those involved for show-casing ECU to potential students and their families and friends.
