The Event Day

Study Adelaide is a government organisation committed to helping students make the most of their study experience in Adelaide and this includes celebrating their achievements. Study Adelaide recently held the sixth annual International Student Awards with His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, Governor of South Australia, presenting the awards to the worthy recipients in the grounds of Government House on Friday 28th October. The event was organised for both the Governor's Farewell (to congratulate and farewell all international students who have completed their studies) and to announce the 2016 International Student Awards.

Around 3:30pm I arrived at the Adelaide Government House Gate along with all the invited international students. I had a chat with the other international students before we walked in. We all were every excited to see the Governor’s House and being part of this amazing end of the year student engagement event.

The award ceremony took place in the gardens of the Adelaide Government House inside a large air conditioned marquee. Luckily the weather was fantastic on the day, not too hot not too cold, perfect for an outdoor event. Later around 5:00 pm the Governor delivered an excellent inspirational speech and congratulated all the international students studying in Adelaide.

Then the announcements started one by one for the most deserved students. Two awards were presented for each category – one for outstanding achievement to the category winner and a highly commended award to the runner-up. One student was also chosen as International Student of the Year and was awarded to the most outstanding student from across all category winners.

Later there was a group photo of all the award winners with His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, Governor of South Australia. Then the party started! Everyone took photos of their friends and family and met with the other winners.
