All staff expressed their sincere thanks for the award and nomination, gratitude for the event, and appreciation generally for the students they engage with and the experiences that they have had that they feel have led them to where they are today.

Background:

The school’s Programme Presidents had been working hard on this event for some time behind the scenes, creating surveys and gathering quotes to ensure that the entire evening could run under budget. A sheer wealth of time and effort went into this, including liaisons with the Dean of the school, Paul Chung, the Associate Dean of Teaching, Ray Dawson, Paul’s wonderful PA Pam Taylor, and numerous other staff members besides, and the input from all made the evening a roaring success!

Finalists voted for various categories on school and departmental levels, rewarding as many staff as possible from all arenas, including support staff too!

The Future:

Hopefully the success of this year’s event will pave the way for similarly successful events in the future!

Well done to all, and thanks again to those who came!
