Make a difference with Australia Awards

Meet Ramon

When I came back, I was promoted to administrative manager. A lot of things changed – my personal outlook towards my work, and my personal outlook towards myself. I can do something that could make a difference.

Ramon completed his Master of Social Change and Development at the University of Newcastle and was given full disability support through an Australia Awards Scholarship.

Spotlight on the re-entry action plan (REAP)

Meet Lucy Miranda

Lucena “Lucy” Miranda was a public-school teacher in Batangas City when she first observed the high dropout rates of high schoolers. What began as an observation became an advocacy – Lucy vowed to help keep struggling students in class and support diverse learners with the help of her co-teachers.

 

After completing Master of Educational Studies at the University of Queensland, Lucy came home to the Philippines and worked on her re-entry action plan (REAP) called Project LAHAT (Learners All Here with Able Teachers) – a professional learning program on inclusive education for high school teachers in Batangas City. With the help of her mentors at the Department of Education (DepED), Project LAHAT provides teachers and school leaders opportunities to learn, collaborate, and share their work.

 

“The new learnings that I took from the University of Queensland provided me with a new philosophical understanding of community, network, inquiry, and collaboration.”
