Timor Leste Independence Day 2013

Students from five of our member schools and members of our committee attended the Timor Lester Independence Day celebrations at City Hall in Geelong on Friday May 17th. Organised by the City of Greater Geelong the day is a celebration acknowledges the debt Australians owe to the people of east Timor and celebrates the strong connections that the people of Geelong have established since it received independence.

City of Greater Geelong Councillor Kylie Fisher chaired the day and she spoke passionately about the close relationship between Geelong and Viqueque.   Students from Clonard College gave an impressive presentation to the forty students who attended the day.
