Winnie Liu has just been awarded 'Outstanding New Leader' as part of the 2015 Australasian Peer Leader Awards, one of the most prestigious Australasian awards for outstanding contribution to student learning.

The Sydney Law School is proud of what Winnie has achieved and is delighted that her involvement and commitment in student development has been recognised.

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) is a free academic assistance program that utilises peer-led group student to help students succeed. The sessions are facilitated by PASS Leaders, current students who have already successfully completed the subject.

PASS is an international program and students who attend PASS are shown to produce higher results than those who do not attend.

"I am honoured to be the recipient of the Junior PASS Facilitator New Leader Award. PASS fosters group learning in a collaborative and supportive environment, by encouraging active learning and by enabling students to gain a deeper understanding of the course materials. It has been an extremely rewarding experience facilitating PASS sessions for both undergraduate and postgraduate students at Sydney Law School."

"It has been a privilege to work with a dedicated group of PASS facilitator. I'd like to thank Jessica Morr, Project Coordinator for PASS, and my PASS leaders, Ivan Li and Samantha Key, for their ongoing guidance and support. I'd also like to thank the Law School for their support for this worthwhile program," said Winnie.

Congratulations on your achievement Winnie.
