CWA Principal, David Pomfret, opened with a review of the academic year, speaking about cross-campus triumphs, success stories and achievements. He said:

These awards are always a personal highlight of the year for me, celebrating success and achievement is a core part of everything we do at CWA and tonight some of our fantastic students received awards to recognise their commitment, standard of work and achievements during the year.

Our award winners have been nominated from our body of approximately 6,000 students and they should be very proud of their achievements. I would like to thank all the families, friends and employers who are here this evening for supporting and encouraging our students during their studies at the college. I would also like to thank those staff who provided such valuable support for their studies. Finally, I would like to thank the sponsors of the various awards for their generous support.”
