The Tasmanian Minister for Education has confirmed that our funding - $50,000 per annum - will not continue after 1 July 2014.
In spite of the funding cut, we remain committed to keeping our valuable programs and services available for schools. Over the next 6 months we will be working on a new model that will allow us to sustain our services into the future.

Now more than ever, we need the support of like-minded people and organisations who are willing to invest in a more socially and globally aware education for young Tasmanians

From 1 July our regular office hours will be Tuesday to Thursday, 9.30am to 5pm. We will still be available at other times for delivery of our programs and services per our Professional Fee Schedule.
