Today Julie Bishop (Australia’s Foreign Minister) and the Minister for Education and Training, Senator the Hon Simon Birmingham announced the outcomes of the Australian Government’s New Colombo Plan Mobility Grants for 2018.

And guess what? My grant application was SUCCESSFUL!!! Total funding awarded: Aud 54,450.

I am so happy about this, because I could now fully fund 15 students for a 2 weeks study tour in Malaysia – my old stomping ground! It’ll be a great cultural and learning experience for them. How fantastic it is to be able to take your students out of the classroom – heck, out of the country – to have them meet/work with new people, to broaden their horizon?

Still giddy with excitement! 😀
