Special guests at Formal Dinner on Monday 20 August were Martin Haese, the Lord Mayor of Adelaide, who was accompanied by his wife, the Lady Mayoress, Genevieve Theseira-Haese.
The Lord Mayor addressed the students concerning the wonderful opportunities that were before both them and the city of Adelaide.
He urged them to seize these opportunities, particularly those afforded by technology and emerging ways of working and living. He drew on his own experience to open up the topics of people-centred organisations, innovation, leadership and embracing the future.
Mr Haese also spoke personally and warmly of his own father’s time at Aquinas, the values and friendships that his father had forged during his time at College and which had stayed with him all his life.
