New Colombo Plan
During March 2016, Federation University students were in Dili for three weeks completing teaching placements at Ensino Basico Santa Madalena de Canossa school. Supported through the #NewColomboPlan, the students were able to diversify their experience working in a school setting and gained an understanding of working in a different national school system.
Cassandra Moss, Alanah Carroll and Sarah Jane Clark said their experience was a great opportunity to learn about the people of Timor-Leste before becoming teachers in Australia. The students met with HE General the Hon Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MS (Retd), Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, during his visit to Timor-Leste. His Excellency is the New Colombo Plan Patron.
