A former South Australian student has been paid $40,000 by South Australia’s Education Department after suffering at the hands of a convicted sex offender employed at a regional school.
The 2009 settlement came three years before a different former student received $30,000 in alleged hush money from the department last year, after being wrongly accused of viewing hundreds of pornographic websites that his teacher had accessed.
Details of a new strategy for international education are to include a transport fare concession scheme, something for which international students have long agitated.
States and territories apart from NSW and Victoria give international students access to the full range of concessions available to their domestic counterparts. However, Victoria appears to have mimicked NSW in restricting its discount to long-term tickets.
The NSW concession arrangements, announced a year ago, only apply to three and twelve-month tickets for travel in the greater Sydney region. The Australian understands that the Victorian concessions will include regional areas covered by the Myki smartcard system, but will only apply to annual tickets.
The scheme will be piloted for three years, starting in 2015.
In an attempt to increase awareness and understanding of the Australian people towards Indonesia in business, culture, education, research, and community networks, Australian Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, stated that Australia plans to build an Indonesian Studies Center in Melbourne.
The Indonesian Studies Center will be located at the Monash University, Melbourne, collaborating with the Melbourne University, the National University of Australia, and CSIRO scientific research center. The Center will explore various fields including languages, culture, food stability, infrastructure, health and educations, and more. The output of the researches will be used for partnering parties as evidence of the high level of cooperation between the two countries.
Prime Minister Tony Abbott stated that Australia truly respects Indonesia and that the strong relations that exist between the two countries will be a foundation for further cooperation that will be of great mutual benefit. The prime minister also confirmed Australia’s commitment to applying the Colombo Plan, which is funded by the Australian Government. The commitment that Australia offers in the Colombo Plan ensures that there are more Australians who will study and work in Asia and Indonesia.
