In the Community

We have partnered with the Aboriginal Literacy Foundation to donate a range of books to assist educating children in Indigenous communities.

The Aboriginal Literacy Foundation believes that positive and practical change to closing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous young people starts with literacy and numeracy. Their vision is for a future where all Indigenous children can pursue quality education, reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the country.

If you have books that you would like to donate to the Aboriginal Literacy Foundation please email info@aboriginalliteracyfoundation.org or phone (03) 9650 1006.

Australia in international politics

Author: Stewart Firth

The world changed for Australia after the terrorist attacks on the US on September 11, 2001 and the Bali bombings of 2002. Security became the dominant theme of Australian foreign policy. Australian military forces remained in Afghanistan years later, opposing the terrorist threat of the Taliban, while hundreds of Australian troops and police worked with public servants to build the state in Asia-Pacific countries such as East Timor and Solomon Islands.
