The event, organised by Richard Ngo, UTAS Alumni Network Coordinator Singapore Group, and Alex Chow, Australian Maritime College Alumni - Singapore Chapter. It brought together alumni from the Australian Maritime College and the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Science, as well as alumni who had studied architecture, biomedicine, business, computer science, commerce, engineering, IT, law, pharmacy and science.

Associate Professor Rick Snell, Deputy Dean and Deputy Head of the School for the Faculty of Law also attended.

“It was a wonderful afternoon attended by over 40 Singaporean alumni and a Malaysian alumnus who had flown in especially from Kuching for the day. What struck me was the affection and pride these alumni from different decades had for their University,” he said.

Ms Lee was thanked for her generosity and presented with a copy of the University of Tasmania’s 125th anniversary publication Voices of a University: Celebrating 125 Years at the University of Tasmania.
