Congratulations to our OzTREKK Community Leaders Scholarship winners!

Congratulations to our three 2016 OzTREKK Community Leaders Scholarship winners:

University of Sydney Occupational Therapy School

Sharon Yeung is headed to Sydney OT School

Jannelle Chisholm, Bond University, Juris Doctor
Sharon Yeung, University of Sydney, Master of Occupational Therapy
Barinder Khehra, University of Sydney, Doctor of Medicine

If you missed it, we announced our winners December 16, 2016 via our Facebook page!

The OzTREKK Community Leaders Scholarships were created to assist students who have demonstrated leadership, compassion, and innovation in their communities. What we didn’t realise is that so many of you are so incredible! The task of choosing the top three was extremely difficult, but this is how we did it:

Bond University Law School

Future Bond JD student Jannelle Chisholm

Students were evaluated on their written letters and videos. It took approximately two months for our scholarship committee to review all applications. Many submissions had to be read/watched multiple times in order to absorb just how much some of the applicants had accomplished! In an office email, OzTREKK Director Jaime Notman commented that “there were a few jaw-dropping moments for me (where I read, re-read and re-read—again—to see if I was mistaken).”

The committee was truly blown away by the calibre of the applications! Such a of variety of community involvement, both on a local and a global scale, and there were certainly some applications that broke office silence—either with a laugh or a cheerful “wow!”

We also have to give a shout-out to the singers, the attempts at Aussie accents, and the didgeridoo players!

So what kind of community involvement did we see? A lot. Here are just a few examples:

  • CLOUD project, part of The NWC – Sustainable Travel for Impact and Community Development Projects in Dominican Republic, Haiti, Uganda, Kenya, Guyana
  • FITFAM – a health and fitness program to help encourage, educate and empower participants to live healthier lives, including weekly boot-camp class, nutrition challenges, health and wellness seminars, and sponsored 5K events.
  • Leader of a mobility fundraiser for wheelchairs delivered to Peru
  • Make Way For Me! Occupational Therapy for Children and Youth – Assisted in the creation, planning, and management as a Skill Development Summer Program, where program facilitators provided intensive services to address areas such as anxiety reduction, emotional regulation, social skills, printing development, and gross motor skills such as riding a bike.
  • President of the Caribbean Students Association – Raised awareness for the struggle of cultural integration, orchestrated events to raise money to donate to Haiti relief groups and donated backpacks to an elementary school in Saint Lucia.
University of Sydney Doctor of Medicine

Barinder Khehra will be studying medicine at Sydney Uni

The group evaluation was tough—the applications showed so much passion and purpose, we wanted to share the scholarship love with everyone! We watched many of the videos repeatedly, combed through written applications, and spent hours discussing and finally selecting the three winners.

It is difficult for the committee to express the appreciation we have for all of our applicants’ efforts. We understand many had likely taken weeks to plan and create their applications, and we want everyone to know we absorbed every detail.

Congratulations again, Barinder, Sharon, and Jannelle! OzTREKK is so proud of what you have accomplished thus far and we are excited to see the positive waves you’ll continue to make within your communities, even Down Under!

*

Best wishes to all our OzTREKK students—we know you’ll make a difference!

Ancient ceremony marks milestone in construction of state-of-the-art Sydney Business School

Ancient traditions are important, it seems, even for the enormous, no-nonsense John Holland Group, a company with an image more readily defined by hard hat, concrete pours, towering construction cranes and tight deadlines on multi-million-dollar projects.

Last year, the company invited a local Aboriginal elder to perform a smoking ceremony on the site of the University of Sydney Business School‘s new $250-million state-of-the-art facility in the Sydney suburb of Darlington.

University of Sydney Business School

Study business at the University of Sydney

A year on and John Holland Group has again turned to ancient tradition to ensure the successful completion of this vast undertaking know as the Abercrombie Precinct project.

Before an audience of hard-hat wearing workers, company managers and University of Sydney representatives, an evergreen tree from the Australian rainforest was hoisted six floors above the ground to the top level of the partly competed building.

This, the dignitaries were told, was a “Topping Out” ceremony, an ancient Scandinavian religious rite held when a construction reaches its highest point. The aim is to appease the tree-dwelling spirits displaced by the building work.

Following the raising of the tree, University of Sydney Vice-Chancellor Dr Michael Spence and the Sydney Business School‘s Dean, Professor Greg Whitwell, were invited to make a gloved hand impression in wet cement for posterity.

“This is not just a building; it is an investment in the young people of Australia and the region,” said Dr Spence. “It is a building that will create opportunities.”

Professor Whitwell said the Abercrombie Precinct resulted from the hard work, creativity and imagination of a small army of people and would ultimately become an asset and a showcase for the entire university.

“This building will allow us to reach our potential as a world-class business school,” he said. “Most importantly, it will allow us to do what we have always done and that is making lives better.”

John Holland’s Project Director Adrian Mulhall admitted that the company had faced some challenges and would no doubt face further challenges before the project is completed in the middle of next year. “We have still got a lot of work to go but today is a day for celebration,” he said.

In keeping with ancient tradition, workers on the site were treated to a meal at the end of the Topping Out formalities. The tree, itself, will be transferred to the grounds of the nearby Darlington Public School.

The John Holland Group chose to “appease” the tree dwelling spirits with the Topping Out ceremony on the eve All Hallows’ Day, better known as Halloween, a time for remembering the dead including saints and martyrs—just a coincidence or perhaps another nod to tradition.
