Roseworthy wins regional education award
Friday, 18 October 2013
The University of Adelaide's Roseworthy Campus has won the Education category of the 2013 South Australian Regional Awards in the Barossa.
The South Australian Regional Awards are held annually to celebrate and showcase the achievements of individuals, groups and organisations that have made significant contributions to regional South Australia.
The program provides a benchmark for excellence by publicly recognising the achievements and success of those who make a difference in the state's seven regions.
This year the Regional Awards received a record-breaking 1,949 nominations, resulting in 500 entries across the seven regions.
The Education category recognises exemplary educators and trainers both in formal and informal settings. It acknowledges their contributions to improved learning, student wellbeing and improved local community and regional opportunities and impact.
Roseworthy Campus has been revitalised with the establishment of the School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences and South Australia's first vet school. This year will see the first class of veterinary students complete their studies.
There has been tremendous growth in student and staff numbers with a number of leading veterinary staff attracted from around the world.
New Veterinary Health Centres offer world-class facilities and veterinary expertise for the benefit of the local, regional and wider communities.
