A heated week of Canberra’s Winter

As we all know Canberra gets bitterly cold during the winter months. Last August, I experienced brisk cold and unusual heat with a bit of surprise. Canberra is less humid than other Australian coastal cities. Many people who live in Canberra are not originally from Canberra, having usually moved there to take up employment with the Australian Government. I define Canberra as the ‘Diplomatic City of Australia’ as it opens doors for the national level diplomatic relations.

As part of annual CISA Induction, most of the mornings were occupied by the training provided by federal government bodies and other authorities including the Department of Education and Training (DET), Department of Home Affairs (DHA), Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR), Universities Australia, Treasury and Economic Development, IEAA, Navitas and Study Perth. It was, indeed, an insightful week of policy making, student advocacy and strategic planning across different branches of the International Education domain in Australia.
