“As this week is NSW Education Week, we are celebrating our students and the critical role our teachers and educators play in shaping the next generation,” she said.

“We are honoured to have Her Excellency here during such a pivotal week.”

Charles Sturt Dean of the School of Rural Medicine Professor Lesley Forster guided the NSW Governor through the plastinated specimens’ area.

“It is a privilege to have Her Excellency here with us today,” Professor Forster said.

“We are delighted to showcase the impact our School is having on producing much-needed doctors in country areas, who are being trained in rural generalism.”
