Congratulations to Oscar Ong, who is currently completing Foundation Studies at the College, for winning the inaugural pathways ‘Academic Excellence’ award at the recent Study Adelaide Governor’s International Student Awards. Oscar was acknowledged for his academic results, having finished the first semester at the College with an average of 95%. Study Adelaide also commended him for his extra-curricular activities that contribute significantly to the College and the outside community. He is president of the College Social Club and has been integral in raising money for the RSPCA, The Cancer Council and YGAP as well as hosting events that encourage student participation and engagement. Oscar has also been involved in voluntary work with the Cancer Council, Study Adelaide, The Colour Run and the Adelaide University Malaysian Students Association. Oscar is a popular and gregarious student – his teachers have commented on his maturity and discipline as well as his wit and sense of humour in class. His academic achievements and community contributions make him a worthy recipient of this award and we congratulate him on his success. Oscar won a trip for two to Kangaroo Island from Study Adelaide and was presented with his award by the Governor of South Australia, Mr Hieu Van Le.
