Guest speaker Kritika Joon from the University of Sydney

On 25 May, The Hon. Niall Mark Blair, Minister for Trade and Industry acknowledged 90 international students who completed their 20 hours commitment to the StudyNSW International Student Welcome Desk Program.

The welcome desk at Sydney Airport was set up in 2015 to offer a friendly helping hand to new international students on their arrival. The acknowledgement ceremony was held at Parliament House where volunteers received certificates from the Minister.

Kritika Joon, an international student from India currently studying at the University of Sydney, spoke at the event. "As StudyNSW airport volunteers, we welcome students to this wonderful city of ours, we help families and partners re-unite and experience the pure joy of bringing all of them together. We've formed traditions, we've set records, and we've made a lot of friends along the way."

We are so proud of each and every student and the efforts they have made to offer a warm welcome to NSW!
