One Week in Timor Leste

In 2012 Michael Wright, the Treasurer of our group and teacher at St Ignatius College, Geelong, was fortunate enough to be awarded the Independent Education Union’s Barry Wood Memorial Grant for projects relating to Social Justice in Education.

His reflection on this experience has been published in this month’s issue of The Point. Michael wrote in that article, “The hope, dreams and optimism for the future the Timorese people possess is truly amazing. One young secondary school student in Dili told me that she and her friends did not have time to socialise as they were the future of their country and as such they must spend their spare time studying, as it’s through education that they can provide a future for their people“.
