This is the last Friday for February 2012 and we’re excited to greet March with open arms! Why? Because of the OzTREKK Study in Australia Fairs, of course! What’d you think we were going to say? To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Well, that’s the second reason. With that, let’s give four cheers to Four for Friday.
OzTREKK Study in Australia Fairs. With our opening, it’s obvious we’re going to get into the OzTREKK Study in Australia Fairs. So how do they work? Well, we bring reps from our Australian university partners to your Canadian campus. You then have a couple of hours to talk with each university rep about your program options. Meanwhile, OzTREKK staff will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about applying to school and living in Australia. Visit our OzTREKK Study in Australia Fairs page for more great info.
A Dingo Ate My Baby: Part Four. The famous 1980 story of an Australian mother insisting a dingo took her baby daughter out of their tent while camping, will see a fourth inquest into the matter. Lindy Chamberlain was initially charged with first-degree murder of her baby daughter. She insisted a dingo ran off with her baby, and evidence over the years has more fingers pointing in the dingo’s direction. A fourth inquest has recently launched, with further evidence indicating that dingoes have been responsible for children’s deaths in past years.

Matt in Australia. OzTREKK Director Matt Miernik is having a terrific time hosting OzTREKK orientation sessions for our students this month. He’s travelled to Townsville, Cairns, Brisbane and Melbourne, helping our Canadian students get settled in their new surroundings. Matt’s been answering questions ranging from best cell phone plans to best place to get a coffee (Melbourne’s coffee culture is ah.maz.ing). The worst part is that when he returns home to Canada this weekend, he’ll be greeted with a fresh batch of snow, as weather reports in Ottawa are calling for 20 centimetres. Umm…welcome back, Matt?
