I am delighted to share with you that the 20th May event organized by
The Australian High Commission to celebrate the Australian Alumni in
Singapore was a tremendous success. Please refer below for a detailed
report of the event.
In particular, I wish to highlight that this event was graced by His
Excellency Dr Tony Tan, The President of The Republic of Singapore and
His Excellency Mr Brett Mason, Parliamentary Secretary to The Minister
of Foreign Affairs For Australia and Senator for Queensland. The
Platinum Sponsorship by National Australia Bank ("NAB") worth $150,000

On behalf of AAS, I wish to thank His Excellency Mr Philip Green, The
Australian High Commissioner to Singapore and his team, in particular
Ms Jennifer Burdick, Second Secretary at The Australian High Commission
in Singapore for having hosted this immensely well received event.
In addition, I am sorry to hear that some members could not be
accommodated due to the overwhelming response. I am sure there will be
many future events organized by both The Australian High Commission
and/ or AAS, especially the end of year Annual Dinner that can
accommodate many, that you can attend and I look forward to
seeing all of you.
Finally, I strongly encourage all members to get involved in AAS
activities and bring their fellow alumni who are not yet members to
join AAS and come along as well.
