Principal's Newsletter, Week 5, Term 3, 2017

posted Sep 3, 2017, 12:45 AM by Ms. Connors

Thank you to Mrs Jenns, Mr Pakes, Ms Chelsey Killey, Ms Lauren Killey and Mrs Ramsay for supervising Year 9 on their beautiful Bronze Hike in the Royal National Park.

Thank you to Mrs Steele for organising another great Ideas Forum. Eileen Wang (Year 8) wrote the following report for the newsletter and provided the photographs:

Ideas Forum 2017 occurred last Friday where anyone could go on stage to talk about anything and everything. Some of the amazing performances included speeches, slam poems, drama skits and Q&A panels. Large crowds turned up every period thanks to the many teachers who took their classes to watch and they were certainly not disappointed. Topics ranged from political rants to cherishing friendship and there were several fantastic Slam Poem performances. Q&A with Winston gave us all many tips and advice for the years to come as well as insight into being a School Captain. The panels in the afternoon had many interesting questions and even more interesting responses. Overall, the day was a huge success thanks to the organisers Mrs Steele, Aditi and Wayne. A huge thanks to SNL who ensured that the day went smoothly and to all the speakers and audience who came to watch and listen.

 Please come along to our Mothers’ Club meeting on Thursday morning at 9.45am in the Lecture Theatre. As well as holding the AGM, Mothers’ Club will host three fabulous guest speakers – Milton Lim, Rohan Swami and Nicole Wong. I had the privilege of teaching both Nicole and Rohan Economics and Milton was one of the first students I met when I came to Ruse in 2005.

 

Brief biographies are listed below.

 

Nicole Wong

 

Traded Market Risk Oversight Analyst, Commonwealth Bank

 

I began my role in Traded Market Risk Oversight at the Commonwealth Bank in March 2016. In this position, I monitor the market risk of the non-linear trading desks (including Interest Rate, FX and Equity Options), as well as perform impact analyses on prospective trades and upcoming economic shocks with regard to regulatory requirements, risk and profitability.

 

I joined the Bank as a summer intern in my penultimate year of university in 2012. I returned as a graduate in 2014, where I undertook four six-month rotations within Risk Management: Wealth Management Market Risk, Retail Credit Risk, Credit Risk Modelling, and finally Traded Market Risk Oversight. Prior to this, I was a corporate auditor at KPMG as part of the KPMG Cadetship program in 2010.

 

I hold a Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Economics degree from the University of New South Wales, with majors in Finance, Business Economics and Econometrics. I attained the Financial Risk Manager (FRM) certification from the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP) in 2017.


Rohan Swami

 

Rohan graduated from James Ruse in 2009. While studying a Bachelor of Commerce at UNSW, he completed a 2 year internship program with EY (a 'big 4' accounting firm offering scholarships for full-time work and part-time university). At the completion of his internship, he dabbled in not for profit, management consulting and tech start-ups while finishing university. Since completing his degree, he has been at Oneflare - an online marketplace helping 50,000 Australians every month hire local service providers from plumbers to accountants. There he is a product manager, enjoying the unique combination of business strategy, software engineering and data science.

Milton Lim

 

Milton Lim is a graduate of James Ruse Class of 2006. He studied Actuarial Science at UNSW on a Co-op Scholarship and worked as a consulting actuary for 5 years. He took a career break for a year to travel the world, visiting over 30 countries so far. He is currently studying a double master's degree at HEC Paris and the London School of Economics, as well as founding a start-up company with fellow MBA classmates based on packaging flights with airlines.

 

Thank you to our fabulous parents who ran the Korean Food Day on Monday. The organisation of the day was superb and the quality and variety of food magnificent. It was inspiring to see the many different parent teams working in their year groups. So much work also happened behind the scenes. A special thank you to Tina Joo, our coordinator. The food day raised an amazing $6110.10. Thank you everyone.
