Staff and students are invited to hear the story of 2019 Australian of the Year dual recipient Dr Richard 'Harry' Harris SC OAM. A question and answer session will follow.

In July 2018, Adelaide anaesthetist Dr Richard Harris made worldwide headlines when he joined an international team to rescue a group of 12 boys and their soccer coach from a flooded cave in Chiang Rai, Thailand. He risked his life swimming through the narrow cave system to assist with the rescue, giving the all-clear for them to be evacuated.
