Wayne Murray

Since graduating with my MPHC, I have had a number of extremely fascinating professional opportunities presented to me.

Currently I am working in public health in Afghanistan in a position that is contributing to molding the policy and straegies of government in service range and delivery. It is a truly unique experience, security issues aside, with the MPHC forming the basis of my understanding of and contributions on holistic public health issues.

Ms Ng Pey Hong

[BA DipSocSc 1986]

I was one of the few Malaysian students to enter this wonderful university in 1983. I spent four wonderful years at Flinders, although I had to work very hard, especially for my postgraduate work. I still dream of Flinders, especially the lovely location of the University Hall where all my friends were, and the best scenery one can find, from the Registry to the far horizon! I know somethings have changed, hopefully for the better. I hope to visit Flinders again, some time soon, especially during the winter months.

Kay became Director of Nursing at Grafton Base Hospital in 1998 and had been Deputy Director of Nursing prior to this.

I retired in April 2002.

JoyNada Perkins

I am a success story following successful completion of the Foundation Course in 1993. I was accepted into the BA program in 1994 and then went to another university to do a BEd, coming back to Flinders to complete Honours. As a mature age student, prospects of work were challenging, however, DECS placed me, at Glossop High School in the Riverland. I am now paid for doing what I love - making a difference teaching Drama and English.
