Snapshots

Picken Lawn Restoration Picken Lawn is a much loved place. A place for sitting and enjoying the garden, talking to friends, playing music or kicking a ball. After years of patching and trying to fix the hardened earth, we have completed the Picken Lawn restoration project. The 2016 Annual Giving Program provided the resources to support the replacement of the hard topsoil, improving drainage and the planting of new grass that will endure the hot summers and busy use. The generosity of our community has made sure that our current and future students will be able to enjoy Picken Lawn in the same way as past generations. We hope that when you visit the College next you have time to stop for a moment to enjoy Picken Lawn.

Et Vetera Lunch The 2017 General Committee Chair, Charles McIntosh greeted and welcomed alumni and their guests to the Et Vetara and 1967 Reunion lunch held at the College on Wednesday 24 May. Alumni came together to enjoy time with each other and share memories of their time at College over this annual lunch. Each year we welcome a new 50 year reunion group into the Et Vetera group. This year, Geoff Courtis, 1967 Fresher, spoke on behalf of his peers with great fondness of College life in their time.

The Value of a Liberal Arts and Sciences Education What then do we gain from understanding these three great histories? We gain vital underpinnings for making a more civilized world: choice, perspective and judgement, meaning, creativity, excellence and literacy. Choice and Plurality Let us begin with choice and plurality. The story of life with its central drama of evolution has much to say about why we are programmed the way we are. But we also know it is not just genes but ideas that shape our behaviour. We readily recognise how our early lives and distinctive experiences shape who we are. However, our personal experiences only account for a limited portion of the ideas we develop and that shape who we are. Ideas like genes also come from our distant ancestors. They are passed on to us through the language we use and the stories we learn.

child. Not knowing our cultural past is like not having a memory of our growing up. Our loss of cultural knowledge is probably a lot worse than that. Imagine how little you would know about yourself if your memory only went back a week. Also, knowing we could live based on a different set of ideas or world views is what secures a peaceful plurality, which is the foundation of civilized society. We live in a time where plurality is under threat from all sides. There are forms of political correctness, some very present on university campuses, especially in the United States, that seek to limit the perspective available. Equally there is authoritarian popularism hostile to the voices of a diverse society. Perspective and Judgment With the knowledge that we could choose differently comes perspective. The triumph of freedom and reason as the cornerstone of government is not a law of physics, it is just an idea that has captured our minds for a tiny period of human history. There is no certainty it will continue to do so unless we choose to argue for its value and ensure that we pass it on as it was passed on to us, hard won from authoritarian rule of many forms.

Our own herb garden

Good conversations can so readily lead to innovation. Last year at the staff Christmas lunch, the kitchen team were talking about the costs of fresh herbs but what a difference they made to good cooking. Recalling that a rosemary bush in the College garden had been utilised on several occasions when supplies were short prompted the suggestion we should have our own herb garden. Less than six months later, herbs are growing in raised beds in a section of the garden behind The Centre for Ethical Leadership; previously the Master’s Lodge. Our students joined Colin and Michael, to set up the garden, by using water tank beds and filling them with fresh soil. Before the weather cooled down, an array of herbs was planted. Some will be ready soon, others will bring fresh tastes to Ormond food in spring. The herb garden now adds another dimension to the Ormond gardens. The garden has many beautiful places to it and now it has a productive one as well. Having a herb garden of our own is one of those all-round wins for sustainability. It enables us to deliver food that is better quality, less costly and with fewer food miles. Importantly, the herb garden gives students a chance to be involved with growing food. Looking after the herb garden has become one of the sought-after Student Service jobs. An idea that started as a conversation will now help our students enjoy their food and linger longer over the conversations in the Dining Hall.

One familiar saying in the entrepreneurial world is ‘your network is your net worth’ and there is much truth in this statement. But what I like to say is, if it takes a village to raise a child, then it takes an ecosystem to raise an entrepreneur. Here at Wade we have gathered an ecosystem of supporters, enablers, investors, entrepreneurs, corporates and teachers that underpin our success. Just in the opening eight weeks of semester one we have had over 25 such visitors come to speak and meet with our students. We were honoured to have former Premier, John Brumby speak to us about the engaging in business with China. We had George Foster, esteemed professor of Entrepreneurship at Stanford University take our class through his world famous Tough Mudder Case Study. And we had CEO of Carnival Lines, Ann Sherry speak to us about innovation in a traditional industry.

of growth and the ways that both the entrepreneur and the business need to adapt, evolve and grow to create and capitalise on new opportunities.

From Silicon Valley in the middle of the dot-com bubble and a PhD in Commercialising Innovation to a career in multi-nationals and co-founding several successful businesses, Professor at The University of Melbourne, Colin McLeod, knows the mechanics of good business. Colin has worked with, advised, and held Directorships of start-ups dating back to the early 90’s when he was in Silicon Valley. That’s where he saw first-hand that a business needs to be built on more than just funding “I was in Silicon Valley when Amazon, Google, and Apple were getting started. No one understood the internet, but people were getting ridiculous amounts of money for startups that had no more substance than an untested idea. It was a very expensive way to find out that an idea isn’t enough.” Colin has been an integral to the development of Wade Institute from the earliest days. He was one of four designers of the Master of Entrepreneurship curriculum. Today, he is Academic Director for both the Master’s degree and Wade Institute. Here, he wants to create more capable and strategic founders that have a chance to not only survive but also thrive. Professor Colin McLeod

Remembered by a grateful College

Dr Anna Drummond College Archivist

In March, the College unveiled a permanent memorial to George Mounsey, groundsman and resident of the College for sixty-five years. At an afternoon tea reception, the Master unveiled the plaque which reads: In memory of George Mounsey (1928-2016), Ormond staff member and resident for 65 years. Loved by generations of students and staff. George's warm friendships, love of football, care for the grounds and tending of the fires will long be remembered by a grateful College. The plaque sits fittingly on the Vestibule fireplace where George lit the fires that warmed generations of students. At the unveiling the Master reflected that George Mounsey was as much a part of the College as any Master or past student and that, like Frank Raleigh, George Mounsey will continue to be remembered and have his story told by Ormondians. The unveiling was attended by a cross-section of the College community including past Masters, past and current staff, and alumni from many decades.
