Thank you to students from around the world, who watched the livestream despite technical difficulties during the night.

Principal Wayne Axford thanked students for their application to their studies and wished them well in their future academic endeavours.

“I encourage you to build on the relationships you already have with your peers, family and other members of society,” he said. “I also encourage you to develop meaningful relationships with people you will meet in the future, whether that be at university, in the workplace or through groups that share a common interest.

“To achieve ongoing success, I encourage you to focus on your goals, be passionate about these goals, work hard at the associated tasks and take pride in what you do.”

Director of International Operations Lisa De’Ceglie said students had adapted to significant changes to learning and teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We hope that the education that you received whether onshore or online has set you up for future studies that will lead to your dream career,” she told students.

“The way you have adapted to the totally unexpected shows that nothing is impossible for you.”

An exceptional valedictory speech from Khaasyiyah Kamsani, a WAUFP student who is also on the Canning College Board, was matched by online valedictories from Alvin Candra, a Diploma of Commerce student from Indonesia, and Livia Lily Mammen, who studied WAUFP from Singapore.

The prestigious Doug Russell Award for the top student was shared, for the first time, by Micayla Han Qi Yi, who studied WAUFP from Brunei, and Lee Dayoon, a Korean student who studied on campus.

The Scholarship Award and Ron Goddard Award for the Diploma of Commerce University of WA stream were won by Chung Hui Ning. The Scholarship Award and Ron Goddard Award for the Diploma of Commerce Curtin University stream were won by Goh Wen Xuan.

So Cek Ki, who studied online from Malaysia, won the Academic Excellence Award as the top Certificate IV in University Access Program student.
