Farewell to Margaret Rafferty

On Thursday 17th December we bid a fond farewell to our valued staff member Margaret Rafferty, who has retired from the University. We extend our warmest thanks for her hard work and contribution to the Faculty and in particular our Research Administration and wish her and her Husband Pat all the very best for a long, healthy and happy retirement.


Bupa Pedometer Challenge Winners

A big congratulations to the Faculty Office’s Team Sci who were the winners of the University’s Bupa Pedometer Challenge. There were 22 teams that participated in the challenge and the participants of the winning team were: Samantha Hammer (team captain), Natalie Anderson, Michelle Berrigan, Rachele Draper, Melissa Eiffe, Rachel Gein, Kelly Smith and Julie Strunk. Well done on the effort!
