Moreland City Council welcomes international students
MORELAND City Council is hosting a welcome event for the city’s international students as part of Cultural Diversity Week. Find out how you can participate!
International students living, studying or working in Moreland are invited to attend a welcome event hosted by the Moreland City Council as part of Cultural Diversity Week 2013.
The event will be held on Friday March 22 from 1.30pm to 5pm at Coburg Library on Victoria St, Coburg.
Students will get a chance to meet the city’s mayor Cr Oscar Yildiz, take part in a welcome to country led by a Wurundjeri Aboriginal Elder, and catch a theatre performance “Life’s a Gamble” featuring an international student cast.
The council will also use the occasion to launch the report International Students in the City of Moreland – the result of research conducted last year by the Globalism Research Centre at RMIT University for the Moreland City Council, looking at some of the key issues facing international students at the community level.
In addition, students will be able to find out useful information about housing and tenancy, jobs and work rights, health services, council services, and safety at night.
No welcome event will be complete without nibblies of course, and there’ll be food from various cultures and traditions for students to sample.
International students interested to participate are encouraged to RSVP to Moreland City Council via email or phone 92402372, and mention any specific requirements such as an interpreter, accessibility and other support services.
The welcome event will be held on Friday Mary 22 from 1.30 to 5.30pm at Coburg Library, Victoria St, Coburg. For more information, visit the Moreland City Council website.
