For the first time in nearly three years, Western Sydney University had held its annual Fast Forward Year 12 Conference at the Parramatta South campus.
Over 800 Year 12 students from 65 schools across western Sydney took part in the event, which is the final on-campus event for students who have been participating in the Fast Forward program since their induction in Year 9.
The culmination of this program is an exciting milestone for these students said the University’s Acting Director, Future Student Engagement, Sophie Partridge.
“Watching these students unlocking their potential over the course of the four-year program is humbling, then seeing them at this final event with their peers and the way they have developed and come into their own is exciting,” said Ms Partridge.
Professor Alphia Possamai-Inesedy, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Engagement and Advancement) delivered the opening address and congratulated the students on their achievements. In the afternoon Mr Ali Faraj, Head of Community, GWS Giants spoke to the group, encouraging them to keep motivated for the months ahead and for their next steps beyond high school.
Over the course of the day, students had the opportunity to attend two interactive sessions from more than 30 academic workshops based on their individual interests, which were delivered by Western Sydney University academics.
Students also heard talks about Western Sydney University’s highly successful HSC True Reward early offer program and about the many scholarship opportunities available to them.

Western Sydney University, Charles Darwin University (CDU) and the Menzies partner to establish the Northern Territory’s own medical school
CDU, Western and the Menzies School of Health Research have signed a MoU to support the CDU Menzies School of Medicine.
The 1973 Watergate Committee hearings ran for 51 days. The revelations drew a huge audience. The pressure built with slow, devastating intensity, devouring then US President Richard Nixon’s agenda, eventually leaving him no option but to fall on his sword.
My default mental image of Olivia Newton-John is from the mid-1970s: long, flowing floral dresses; long, centre-parted light brown hair; big inquisitive eyes; and, when called for, an irresistible smile perfect for the cover of TV Week.
