UWA Forward

Vice-Chancellor's Voice

Good morning. While the temperatures may be dropping the campus remains full of activity and there are many things happening that you can get involved in. The Winthrop Singers launch UWA WINTERarts next week and the festival has something for everyone with exhibitions, concerts, tours and a dedicated children’s program for the school holidays.

It is also important to make health and wellbeing a priority at this time of year. New Recreate courses have been specifically developed for UWA staff and are a good way to stay active on campus while the recently upgraded Sport and Recreation Centre is a great place to escape the winter chill.

Keeping you safe in emergency situations

If you were in Perth in 2010 on March 22, it’s probably etched in your memory for all the wrong reasons. On this day a mighty hail storm ripped through the city, damaging tens of thousands of cars in what would be WA's costliest natural disaster in history.


For any critical incident that has an effect on staff, students, visitors and even animals, there is an underlying process in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our community.

Campbell Thomson

At UWA alone, there was $30million worth of damage and the event required one of the largest responses from the Critical Incident Management Team (CIMT) in recent memory.
