Philippine Ambassador to Australia Belen Anota administered the oath of office to Adjunct Associate Professor Felix J.

A large number of Felix’s extended family, with whom he maintains regular contact, continue to live in the Philippines and have also spread to parts of Spain and the United States. Felix came to live Melbourne in 1978 to pursue his studies.

Felix holds a Master of Health Administration and a Graduate Diploma in Health Services Management from RMIT University, a Graduate Diploma in Education from Monash University and a Bachelor of Theology from the College of Divinity, University of Melbourne.
