2019 Awards Evening

On Tuesday 4 June the Melbourne Graduate School of Education celebrated the success of our graduate students and the many achievements of our alumni and staff at the 2019 Awards Evening.

Before the formal part of the evening, a donor event was held to acknowledge the generosity of the Graduate School’s donors where attendees heard from Jenny Leaper whose Leaper Foundation has funded the new Research in Effective Education in Early Childhood (REEaCH) Hub.

An impressive 83 awards were presented to 122 recipients, a testament to the Graduate School’s vision of equipping people to address the major educational challenges of our time.

Honorary Enterprise Professor Maxine McKew was an excellent master of Ceremonies and the evening concluded with the MGSE Distinguished Research Award being awarded to Professor David Clarke, who has made a significant contribution to the Graduate School throughout his career. His brief but heart-warming speech was followed by a standing ovation demonstrating what a respected and inspiring colleague he was to so many.
