New students for 2006 gathered in Notre Dame’s Student Common Room this week to be officially welcomed by the University's Vice Chancellor, Dr Peter Tannock and Student President, Sophie Ecker.

Both speakers emphasized the level of support available to students in Notre Dame’s caring and personalized environment.

The Vice Chancellor said, "It is important that we do all that we can to ensure that students attain their academic qualification, however, we also feel strongly that students should leave Notre Dame having enjoyed their total university experience."

This year the University has introduced a full week of orientation commencing with the official welcome, guided tours of the University including the Library, Information Technology seminars and guided tours of Fremantle, the University's home.

The purpose of the program is to ensure that students have an opportunity to familiarize themselves with fellow students and their University before participating in Welcome Day. Orientation Week concludes with a ‘Family Day’ which allows parents and families of new students to hear and see first-hand all that Notre Dame has to offer.

Manager of the Admissions Office, Mrs Rommie Masarei said “we have been very encouraged by the number of new students enrolling at Notre Dame. The calibre has been outstanding and we look forward to their contribution to the Notre Dame Community.”
