Message from the Principal
We had a tremendous start to our 50th Anniversary year, with thanks to the energy and thoughtfulness of our staff, members of our 2021 residential leadership team, and our enthusiastic volunteers.
In particular, I want to thank Matthew Lobb and the other members of our Burgmann College Alumni Association Committee for their dedicated support in the planning of the Back-to-Burg Alumni Weekend and launch of the Burgmann College Alumni Awards this year.
While the pandemic continues to present some challenges, we are incredibly fortunate to have been able to run a considerable number of events in Semester 1, including the much anticipated 50th Anniversary Burg Day, complete with brick race and blessing from St Beryl.
Our 50th celebrations were launched with a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony by Ngambri Elder Dr Aunty Matilda House on 13 February—the perfect event to welcome our 170 new residents and our returning residents to College prior to the start of O-week. Read full Message
