Well I’ve finally handed in my final assignment for the semester so I’m super excited about that but also super burnt out and haven‘t had a lot of time to work on much.

We had a meeting to discuss our financial delegation policy which was really good. I think we have developed it really well and I’m looking forward to being able to implement it. It is just one of the ways we are working on the auditor’s recommendations.
It will be really good to have more policy in place to make procedures clear for everybody now and in to the future.

We also had Education board where we discussed some issues that came up over the exam period. We will be looking in to the scheduling of exams in different locations as students were rushing between Hawthorn and Etihad, hurriedly trying to make their following exam on time. Whilst there was no actual overlap of time, the time between exams did not allow for the transport between venues and put unnecessary pressure on students.

I also went out to our Croydon campus with our Executive Officer James to meet with our Café Manager Debbie. It’s always good to get out there and see how things are going and we had a good chat about her role moving forward. It looks as though she will be stepping back for health reasons and so we would need to bring in a new manager. I’m so happy with the success of the café though and it’s great to see it grow. We always knew we could do it but it’s great to see it actually working out so well!
