Dear Rotary Friends,
2020 has certainly been one for the record books and as the year comes to a close, I wanted to say thank you for the difference you have made at USC. This year more than ever, our students and dedicated staff have been buoyed by the support we received from our community.
USC has met the challenges presented by COVID-19 and adapted well. Through technology-enabled learning and extended support services, health and wellbeing was prioritised, helping students and staff to achieve their goals, albeit by travelling a different road to the one they had initially planned.
Sadly COVID-19 had a significant financial impact on USC, resulting in staff redundancies. We wish all of those who left USC in 2020, as well as everyone else impacted in our communities, all the very best, and hope that 2021 delivers the opportunities they seek.
In closing off the year, we have included a couple of stories you may have missed. We have also included a link to the online version of our 2020 edition of Ignite magazine. It’s hard to miss with the striking image of Bear the Detection Dog on the cover.
I hope you enjoy a break over the summer and we look forward to connecting with you in 2021.
All the very best,
