Professor David David returns to Aquinas

Special guest at the College’s bi-weekly Formal Dinner on Monday 7th May was 2018 South Australian of the Year and former Aquinian, David David AC.

When introducing Professor David at the dinner, the Rector described him as one of Aquinas’s most distinguished and exceptional alumni.

“Few Aquinians, few South Australians, indeed few people anywhere have made as much impact for good on the lives of others as has David David,” said Brother Michael as he presented an overview of the remarkable life’s work of the world-leading craniofacial surgeon, and the values that defined him.

In his address to the students, Professor David urged the students to develop the vision, imagination and commitment to pursue careers and lives that were more than the ordinary, and made a difference in the world.

Professor David was accompanied by his wife, Bronwen. Before and after the dinner, they met informally with students and staff.
