Out of class ex­pe­ri­ences

Fremantle Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

AL­MOST $300,000 in Fed­eral fund­ing will give Univer­sity of Notre Dame stu­dents the chance to help dis­ad­van­taged com­mu­ni­ties through­out Asia in 2018.

The Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s New Colombo Plan (NCP) grant of $280,500 will be shared be­tween Notre Dame’s schools of Law, Ed­u­ca­tion, Nurs­ing and Mid­wifery, and Arts and Sciences to help fund trips to Cam­bo­dia and Viet­nam.

Notre Dame in­ter­na­tional pro vice-chan­cel­lor Peta Sanderson said the trips en­abled stu­dents to work with dis­ad­van­taged peo­ple while hon­ing skills taught in class.

She said ex­pe­ri­ences be­yond the class­room and out­side com­fort zones saw many stu­dents re­turn with in­creased con­fi­dence, global aware­ness and a com­mit­ment to re­turn to the re­gion again.
