Alumnus Dr Roy Ponce honoured for innovation

Congratulations to alumnus Dr Roy Ponce on being awarded the Excellence in Innovation Award at the recent 2017 Australian Excellence Alumni Awards held in the Philippines.

Roy founded an after school care program in the Philippines aimed at increasing literacy and learning experiences for children in underprivileged communities, which has since grown into a number of children focused activity centres. Here is a video about one of them called Happy Fish Kids.

Currently Vice President of Research and Extension at the Davao Oriental State College of Science and Technology, Roy earned his doctorate at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education, where he investigated the measurement practice in evaluation capacity building.
