Head’s Cocktail Reception

Council Member, Martine Botha (UC 2008) with Henry and Alison Botha

Head of College, Dr Jennifer McDonald hosted College Council members, donors, community members and students at a special reception on Monday 22 October.

The spring garden in the Giblin Courtyard was the perfect backdrop for the end of year celebration which allows students to meet Council members, donors and members of the college community in a more informal setting prior to exams and the end of year holiday season.

Student Representative on Council, Jayden Galbraith (UC 2016), who has received several scholarships during his three years at University College, expressed his sincere gratitude to donors for their ongoing support.

“To receive the support I have been fortunate enough to have received has made such a massive and positive difference to me and the experiences I’ve been able to have at College. All of the students here tonight, although from different walks of life and with their own stories, would not have been able to make University College the ‘home away from home’ if it was not for the generous donors to the UC Scholarship Program. Thank you to each and every one of you who have supported the College over the past 12 months and beyond – it’s having a tremendous impact on the students of this community.

– Jayden Galbraith (UC 2016)

President of Council, Jane Peck also took the opportunity to publicly thank outgoing Council and Committee members for their service and dedication to the governance of the College. Marli Wallace, Anne Cronnin OAM, Professor Rachel Webster, Dr Barbara Murray, Max Murray and Professor Peter Harris have all served Council and its various sub-committees and the College owes these people a tremendous amount of gratitude.
