[推荐]莫多克大学副校长在NIT的演讲
作者:

It is particularly interesting for me to visit with you here in your School because, in the long distant past, I taught in Schools somewhat like this one, but in Western Australia. 

I taught, like your teachers, curriculum within the Western Australian Certificate of Education (which you will know as the WACE).   

Your teachers are recognised in Australia as excellent teachers in this framework.

I can honestly say to those teachers here with us today that nothing is more important than the job that you do.

Recently at my own University in Perth, we conducted a survey amongst our students and asked them to tell us about their goals and aspirations and what they most wanted to achieve in their lives. 

One of the things which was repeated often in their responses was that they wanted to make a difference in the world.

Looking at your faces I cannot help but think that this is a response you would also give to me.

And that is what universities in Perth aim to help you do. 

To prepare you to make a difference in China.

Education is the first step to achieving this goal.

There are five universities in Western Australia.  Each one has some students enrolled who come from China.

Within Western Australia, Chinese students have a reputation of being hardworking and high achievers.

Each university offers a range of courses and although two universities may offer the same course, each one will approach the subject matter in a special way. 

You can find out about each university’s approach by searching each one on the web, or by emailing each university’s International Office or by visiting the Perth Education City website. I encourage you to do this.

At the same time you can explore things like accommodation and costs of living in Western Australia. 

And of course, you can also explore the fun things to do there because Western Australian universities will provide you with a cultural experience as well as an excellent education.

Western Australian universities are sought out by students from all around the world. 

This means, of course, that your cultural experience will include opportunities to interact, socialise and work with other young people from a range of other countries. 

This is where friendships and life long relationships are formed.  

The enrichment of your life by these connections will affect your future in ways that you and I cannot possibly measure here and now.

If you choose to spend your precious years of higher education at Notre Dame, Edith Cowan  Curtin, the University of Western Australia or my own University - Murdoch University –

our challenge will be to prepare you to make a difference in the world. 

The potential is entirely in your hands.  I look forward to seeing you in Perth, Western Australia.
