“My contribution will get things started, but others will need to come on board as well. The vision CGS has outlined is about fully embracing and engaging with Asia and the wider world. Grammar has everything going for it: access to intelligent students, local universities with a very strong Asian Studies core, situated in Canberra with a community that is more externally-focused because it is the national capital.
All my life I have believed if you want to make it happen, you just go and do it. I want to see our national capital equipped with the learning institutions to lead our national engagement with Asia. I believe CGS can deliver this and I want to give them the tools to do it.”
