Abstract

81 Western Australian (WA) school leavers have been granted a place at The University of Notre Dame Australia (UNDA), Fremantle’s Campus for 2008 as part of the University’s Early Offer Program (EOP).

The EOP was introduced last year to give secondary schools the opportunity to nominate academically strong students who have made an outstanding contribution to school and community life.

This year Notre Dame Fremantle received 147 applications from 60 schools around WA, including country schools such as St Luke’s College, Karratha and Manjimup Senior High School.

Rommie Masarei, Manager of UNDA’s Admissions Office commented, “We are delighted to see the number of applications increase. This is a great opportunity for outstanding students to be acknowledged for their contribution to school and community life and their strong academic results.”

The students were addressed by the University’s Vice Chancellor, Dr Peter Tannock at the EOP award ceremony where he congratulated them.

“It is a great pleasure to welcome to Notre Dame such high calibre students who have made a great contribution to their School community,” said Dr Tannock.

The offers received by the 81 successful nominees are conditional on them completing Year 12 and meeting the academic requirements for each course.
