Bondy to represent Australia at Beijing Olympics
Bond University student Mathew Belcher, the highly talented Gold Coast Olympic sailing team challenger, has thrown down the gauntlet to win selection for the 2008 Australian Beijing Olympic yachting team.
Mathew combined with the equally skilled Tasmanian sail handler Nick Behrens to win the Australian 470 dinghy championship on Brisbane’s Waterloo Bay last month.
Organisational Behaviour class raises over $3,000 for charity
Projects organised by students of last semester’s Organisational Behaviour class - taught by Professor Cynthia Fisher and Visiting Teaching Fellow Jane Murray - have raised over $3,000 for charity.
Students put their project management skills to good use, with seven project teams successfully executing fundraising projects to benefit charities including the Queensland Cancer Fund, Surf Lifesaving Australia, the Starlight Foundation, and a local Gold Coast charity for disadvantaged youth.
