Director's Message

Dear Colleagues,

Many thanks for your valued feedback on the administration restructure. I met with HoDs and administrators yesterday and went over the key points from this feedback.  Early next week I will circulate some suggestions to this group for final comment and I hope to finalise this by the end of that week.

This week’s pic shows a delicious and festive lunch arranged by the admin staff on Monday, with decorations by Gaye and lucky dip by Sue.  This week’s surprise pic (see below) shows a new Canberra landmark, right next to Physics South. Apparently, this was approved back in 2011 but the sign was only recently erected.  Who knew?

Have a good weekend

Tim
