Timeline for the Australian Lebanese Foundation
December 2 2005
The Premier’s Dinner was hosted by The Australian Lebanese Foundation in the presence of the Premier of NSW, The Honorable Morris Iemma at The Stamford Plaza, Double Bay. Approximately 50 couples enjoyed an intimate evening during which the 2005 Scholarship Recipients were introduced to the Premier. Guests had the opportunity to be photographed and converse with the Premier. It was a most relaxed and enjoyable evening.

The ALF stand at this year’s Sydney Uni LIVE! was a success. The University Events and Schools Liaison Manager reported that evaluation forms, booth tally sheets, bus statistics and mini lecture data indicate that (despite the patchy weather!) the number of visitors to campus was just over the 15,000 mark. The day ran smoothly and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Representation from faculties, departments, University of Sydney Union, Sydney University Sport, the SRC, Residential Colleges, Sydney Uni Village, the Koori Centre and the Australian Lebanese Foundation ensured that prospective students gained a very positive insight into what the University of Sydney has to offer. The ALF handed out more than 50 scholarship application forms to eligible enquirers on the day.
The ALF web site was redesigned and updated.
