The campus is proud to be located on the traditional lands of the Darkinjung people and carry on the role of being a place of learning. We also acknowledge all first Australians and celebrate with them the oldest continuing cultures in human history. The cross-sectoral partnership provides access to a wide range of educational opportunities including postgraduate, undergraduate, vocational and commercial short courses, enabling programs and TVET (TAFE courses run on campus for senior high school students). Credit transfer arrangements allow students to move seamlessly from TAFE to University and from University to TAFE. Today, the University offers 16 single undergraduate degree programs and two combined degrees at the Central Coast campus. Exclusive programs include Exercise and Sport Science, Oral Health, Podiatry, Food Science and Human Nutrition; with majors in Marine Science or Sustainable Resource Management within the Bachelor of Science. More than 70 vocational programs are offered by Hunter TAFE and 27 nationally recognised qualifications and other lifestyle, business and career development courses are provided by the Community College. The vitality of the campus is reflected in the achievements of its staff, students and graduates, and the respect it holds with the Central Coast community and the nation having led the way for this model of working together to enhance educational access, training and social justice. The campus continues to thrive, with enrolments of more than 8,000 students across all institutional programs and courses in 2013. New facilities, including an extended library and state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities, have opened over the past two years as part of a $20 million capital works program.

GRADUATION – JUNE 2013

THE GRADUATION CEREMONY THE MACE

HONOURS

The Mace is the symbol of formal authority. The Mace used today belongs to the University of Newcastle and was designed by gold and silversmith, Gerald Benney. It is made of Australian walnut and silver and its head represents an open book – the traditional symbol of learning. The Mace was a gift from the University of New South Wales to commemorate the establishment of the University of Newcastle as an autonomous institution on 1 January 1965. It is always borne ahead of the Chancellor in the academic procession during formal ceremonies such as today’s presentation of academic awards.

The award of Honours is given to students who complete an additional year of study after the completion of a bachelor’s degree. Some bachelor’s degrees, such as engineering or education, have Honours embedded in the four year degree program. Honours generally consists of part coursework and part research requiring submission of a thesis. Honours can be awarded as Class I, Class II Division 1, Class II Division 2, or Class III.

THE UNIVERSITY OF NEWCASTLE FANFARES In mid-1994, staff and students of the University’s Faculty of Music were invited to submit entries for a competition to compose the University Fanfare. The composition had to be capable of being performed either on organ or on brass. The winning entry by Professor Robert Constable, was first played publicly at the University’s overseas graduation ceremony held in Singapore in August 1994. The Fanfare is performed at all ceremonial functions to herald the entry and departure of the Chancellor and other members of the Council. With respect and collaboration, the University of Newcastle embraces a united approach to equality and inclusiveness for all Australian peoples. THE UNIVERSITY MEDAL The award of a University Medal is an honour made only when there is a candidate of sufficient merit. To be considered for this award, a graduate must have a consistent record of exceptional academic achievement at all levels of their degree program, and qualify with the highest level of that degree.

WITH DISTINCTION A bachelor or master degree is conferred with distinction in cases where a candidate has achieved a Grade Point Average of 6.0 or above in the degree, out of a maximum of 7.0. COMBINED DEGREE A combined degree is one where a student studies for two separate degrees at the same time. It is possible for the student to complete the degree requirements for one degree ahead of the other. The student receives a testamur for each degree. Places for combined degrees are very competitive and offered to the highest performing students who apply.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF GRADUATION The graduation ceremony is one of great antiquity. Its essential features have been the same since the 12th century when the first universities came into existence. Its necessary constituents are the Chancellor or his or her deputy, the academic staff, the graduates, and the public. The church had a monopoly of education, partly because it was the guardian of true doctrine, and partly because clerics were almost the only people who could read and write. As a result, the only person who could license a teacher was the bishop of a diocese until, under pressure of other business; he deputed the task to his chief secretary or chancellor. As learning spread, teachers wanted a licence to teach not just in one diocese, but everywhere, and the only person who could give them that was the Pope. The Chancellor’s authority, then, came from the Pope. But at the Reformation, Henry VIII assumed for the Crown all the rights which had previously been the Pope’s in England. That is why all subsequent universities in England have been created by Royal Charter. It is for this reason also that the Chancellor does not wear ecclesiastical robes, as would have been worn in the Middle Ages, but robes similar to those of the Lord Chancellor of England. The second group participating in the ceremony is the academic staff. In the 12th century they would all have been called “masters” or MAs. At that date they were paid no salaries, but hired their own lecture rooms and charged their own fees. But they also formed themselves into a guild or union, which is what universitas originally meant. As in all guilds they were insistent that they, and only they, should determine who should be of their number, and since this involved saying who should be teachers, they soon found themselves in conflict with the Chancellor. In the 13th century they won a great victory when they persuaded the Pope to decree that Chancellors were obliged to confer degrees on all those nominated by the masters. That is why the masters examine the candidates, why the Dean, acting as their spokesperson, reads out the names of those who are to receive degrees, and why the masters at this ceremony watch to see that the Chancellor or his Deputy does what is required of him.

Thirdly the graduates. The word “degree” comes from the Latin gradus, which means “a step”. When students are admitted to a Bachelor degree they move one step up towards the mastership. When they are admitted to a master’s degree they climb another step and come up on a level with the masters, who then receive them into their guild or universitas. In the Middle Ages they would then have stayed on the dais, so that their old master could invest them with the symbols of office. But that was only part of the business. The new master had to deliver an inaugural lecture, entertain the whole guild of masters to dinner and preside over disputations for forty days continuously. For that reason, taking one’s master’s degree was called “inception”, or the beginning of one’s career as a master. The academic gowns are derived from the everyday dress of the medieval clergy. In the Middle Ages they were not open in front, but closed like a clergyman’s cassock. It was in about 1500 that academics had the front opened up so as to display the fine clothes which they were wearing underneath. The hood was the normal medieval headwear, but it soon acquired a coloured lining. By the 17th century, if not earlier, these colours were strictly controlled so that anyone could identify from the colour of a graduate’s hood, the university and the degree. The public is the fourth participant. It has an important function because the whole point of the proceedings is that they should be seen and heard by valid witnesses. The public hears the words of the Dean and the Chancellor and sees the new graduates dressed in their respective gowns or robes. The foregoing is an adaptation of an Address given at a Graduation Ceremony at the University of Birmingham by Emeritus Professor R H C Davis and reprinted in his book ‘From Alfred the Great to Stephen’ (Hambledon Press 1991), pp. 307-309. It is reproduced with kind permission of the author’s widow.

Third-year nursing student Savannah Shaw says receiving her scholarship allowed her to focus on her studies.

Tanille Elley’s support helped shape Rowan Moses’ university experience.

These gifts have truly made a difference to the futures of those who are graduating today.

Bachelor of Arts/Primary School Teaching student Rowan Moses was one student who benefitted from a scholarship last year.

The University Foundation’s Executive Officer Dr Bernard Curran said scholarships provided a valuable way for supporters of the University to directly help students.

Rowan, who was the recipient of the Glen Avery Memorial Scholarship, said winning was “very humbling”.

“A university education is a significant commitment and places great demands on students and families,” Dr Curran said. “A scholarship takes the financial pressure off and offers breathing space in which students can maximise the university experience and their potential to succeed. Increasingly, students work long hours in part-time jobs to pay their way through university. Scholarships provide support, confidence and encouragement, buoying motivation and providing the means to remain focussed on the end goal.”

“My dad used to say to me that when you live your life passionately and honourably, you will be amazed how many people will support you. To have a collective group of people like the scholarship selection board say ‘yes, you’re deserving of this’ is very special.” Donor Tanille Elley, who contributes to the Glen Avery Memorial Scholarship, said supporting students was very rewarding. “I initially gave to support the students,” Tanille said. “And once I met Rowan it all became so real because I could see the positive impact my donations had on her university experience.” Thank you to all our generous donors and sponsors.

OCCASIONAL ADDRESS

ORDER OF PROCEEDINGS

Daniel Farmer Mr Daniel Farmer is the Regional Manager of the Central Coast NSW Business Chamber, an organisation that provides a voice for businesses by lobbying all levels of government to create a better commercial environment. As Regional Manager since 2009, Mr Farmer has led a team that provides sound, independent advice, information and support to Central Coast businesses. Mr Farmer has gained much of his knowledge and skills from his evolving work experiences. He has gained extensive business consulting experience including sales and marketing, operational planning and workplace compliance from a career that has spanned industries including automotive, real estate and sales. Mr Farmer trained in automotive refinishing at North Sydney Institute of TAFE from 1995-1999 and worked in the trade for five years where he developed a solid background in safety practices. The experience in safety practices prepared him well for his next role as a foreman for a Central Coast-based automotive organisation in the last 18 months of his time in the industry. A change in career direction resulted in Mr Farmer learning the skills of negotiation and sales with Ray White Real Estate The Entrance. From February 2003 Mr Farmer worked with a small team on the start-up of Coast Edge Real Estate, formulating the business plans and overseeing the strategic implementation of the operations and staffing, soon after becoming the CEO. With an extensive amount of sales expertise and as a part of the management team from 2005 – 2009, Mr Farmer successfully managed Australia’s second largest circulating community newspaper, the Central Coast Express Advocate, to some of its highest revenue targets in the history of the newspaper. At the Express Advocate he managed a multi-million dollar budget and led a team of 22 sales, administration and production staff to produce four publications per week, in addition to two inserts. With a passion for the Central Coast region and its future, Mr Farmer has championed the University of Newcastle, in particular, the Central Coast campus, and the benefits education brings to the local community. Working with the Central Coast campus, Mr Farmer piloted the rollout of the University’s Work Integrated Learning program, which connects students with relevant businesses and delivers real world experiences to students in line with their learning requirements. In a further effort to connect business to the Central Coast campus, Mr Farmer initiated an annual business development and networking event with the University of Newcastle and TAFE to foster business relationships.

He is currently Director of the Trustee for the Mars Retirement Plan. With his wife Therese, Mr Kennedy runs Beyond Broke Vineyard in the Hunter Valley. This year he retired as Chairman of the Hunter Medical Research Institute’s (HMRI) board, a role he held for six years. Born in Melbourne in 1948, Mr Kennedy’s varied international career has evolved since graduating with a Bachelor of Economics from the Australian National University in 1970. He is also a Fellow of Certified Practising Accountants (FCPA). Mr Kennedy’s career began at Metal Manufactures in Port Kembla where he worked in industrial engineering before being seconded for two years to BICC in the United Kingdom, at that time the largest non ferrous cables manufacturer in the world. He also worked for BICC Malaysia and on return to Australia moved into management consulting at PA, McKinsey and John Cruickshank, before moving to Peko Wallsend to work in exploration and planning. He also worked for Reed Consolidated, looking after strategic planning, and served as its CEO for the New Zealand operations. For two decades from 1984 to 2004, Mr Kennedy served as CEO of confectionary, petfood and food giant Mars, and for 11 years as CEO of Masterfoods Australia, part of Mars Incorporated. At the time of taking the helm in 1987 Masterfoods recorded a turnover of $50 million, which blossomed to $225 million while the company transitioned under Mr Kennedy’s leadership to a new, larger facility at Wyong. From 1998 to 2001, Mr Kennedy led Uncle Ben’s of Australia (UBA), also a division of Mars Incorporated. Based in Wodonga, Mr Kennedy grew sales 6 per cent per year, to in excess of $1 billion. At the same time he managed the New Zealand operation of Mars, overseeing the petfood sales, growing them to over NZ$100 million per year. During his time as HMRI Board Chairman from 2007 to 2013, the Board was involved in the construction of the new HMRI Building. Mr Kennedy also helped to secure the services of respected Swedish researcher, Professor Michael Nilsson, as the new HMRI Director. He also helped to secure the final funding for the $90 million HMRI Building. Mr Kennedy’s Beyond Broke vineyard, his so-called ‘hobby’ has recently completed its fifteenth vintage.

In 1998, Mrs Hopwood became the first Executive Director of The Australian Podiatry Association (NSW), of which she is now an honorary life member. During this role Mrs Hopwood assisted with the establishment of a foot clinic at the Matthew Talbot Hostel for homeless men; improved clarification of the role of foot care delivered by nurses as opposed to the scope of practice of podiatrists; and supported the setting up of a fly-in/ fly-out podiatry service to Bourke, Brewarinna, Lightning Ridge and Walgett. With a taste for politics, Parliamentary service became Mrs Hopwood’s main focus and in 2002, she was elected to the New South Wales Parliament in the Legislative Assembly as the sixth Member for Hornsby and the first female representative for the area. Mrs Hopwood represented Hornsby for over nine years, retiring from politics in 2011. With a passion for learning, Mrs Hopwood continues her education today, undertaking PhD studies at Avondale College in the area of homelessness, looking at the perceptions and opinions of homeless people in the Hornsby Local Government Area to their lived experience and services provided for them. Mrs Hopwood is a member of the Northern Sydney Local Health District Board, sits on the Board of the Schizophrenia Fellowship of NSW, is a life member of the Royal North Shore Graduate Nurses’ Association and is also a patron of numerous community organizations in the Hornsby, Kuring-gai and Berowra areas.

OCCASIONAL ADDRESS

ORDER OF PROCEEDINGS

Joanne McCarthy Joanne McCarthy is a newspaper journalist with drive and determination that has earned her national acclaim.

The Master of Ceremonies will announce the imminent commencement of the ceremony

A Newcastle Herald journalist for the past 11 years, Ms McCarthy was awarded in March the 2012 Graham Perkin Australian Journalist of the Year Award for her campaign to uncover the truth about child sex abuse in the Catholic Church. Other previous winners of this prestigious award include some of Australia’s finest journalists, including Laurie Oakes, John Silvester, Paul McGeough, Paul Kelly and Michelle Grattan.

The University Fanfare will herald the entry of the Dais Party

Her work, as part of the Newcastle Herald’s Shine the Light campaign, was instrumental in the federal government’s decision to order a royal commission, as well as the NSW government announcing a special commission of inquiry. Following schooling at St Joseph’s High School and later Henry Kendall High School at East Gosford, where she completed her Higher School Certificate in 1977, Ms McCarthy began training as a nurse at Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. Leaving prior to completing the full nursing course, Ms McCarthy soon began honing her journalism skills at the free weekly Central Coast newspaper, the Gosford Star in 1980. She later joined the Central Coast Express Advocate during which time she completed a University of Newcastle Open Foundation program in 1996. Uncertain whether she wanted to pursue a law degree, Ms McCarthy completed a second Open Foundation year in 1997 including legal studies. Ms McCarthy later went on to study a Bachelor of Arts degree while working at the Central Coast Express and later the Newcastle Herald, graduating in 2003. Ms McCarthy is the proud mother of three adult sons and in her free time enjoys gardening, endurance running and as one would expect, reading.

The assembly will rise and remain standing until the conclusion of the National Anthem, performed by Ms Kumari Lamotte The Acting Chancellor, Ms Dianne Allen will declare the proceedings open The Newstep students will be presented by the Newstep Coordinator (Ourimbah), Dr David Powter The Acting Chancellor will invite Mr Nicholas McCarthy to speak on behalf of the Newstep students The Open Foundation students will be presented by the Open Foundation Co-ordinator (Ourimbah), Dr David Powter The Acting Chancellor will invite Ms Melissa Salvador to speak on behalf of the Open Foundation students The Musical Interlude will be performed by Ms Kumari Lamotte The Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Caroline McMillen will address the assembly and introduce the Occasional Speaker The Occasional Address will be delivered by Joanne McCarthy The Acting Chancellor will declare the proceedings concluded The Dais Party and assembly will rise as the University Fanfare is sounded and the Dais Party process from the stage The Procession of Recipients will follow the Dais Party out of the Hall
