Sydney (Australia) -- Thirty years at Creston College

“In education the important thing is to incline the students towards the good,” said Imelda Roche, Chancellor of Bond University, during the celebration of the Thirtieth Anniversary of Creston College, a university residence at the University of New South Wales.

In her address Chancellor Roche stressed the educational role of women in society and said that the formation provided at Creston fostered the promotion of justice, human dignity and the priority of the family as the nucleus of society.

Australia’s Prime Minister, John Howard, sent a message of congratulations in which he encouraged those involved to continue their work in fostering women’s education. During the meeting other messages were read from various civil and university authorities throughout the country and from ex-residents from various parts of the world, including the Philippines, Lebanon, Hong Kong, Singapore, Poland and Kenya.
