Teacher visit to Indonesia

SHEERA Lee has been selected to visit Indonesia and see the impact of the Navitas Education Trust’s (NET) funding of a new school building (above).

From a competitive pool of applicants from across the world, she was selected by Navitas CEO Scott Jones, to visit the NET partner projects by Classroom of Hope, an organisation committed to constructing schools in rural areas of developing countries.
Navitas is dedicated to transforming lives through education, both in Australia and internationally, with over 50,000 students learning at Navitas’ global network of colleges and campuses.
Over the past 10 years, Navitas, through NET, has partnered with forward-thinking and sustainable organisations, like Classroom of Hope, to bring education to disadvantaged communities around the world.
NET funding has been instrumental in supporting Classroom of Hope’s initiatives, including the construction of eco-block schools on the island of Lombok, Indonesia, and sustainable development projects in Cambodia. Through Navitas staff contributions, 13 schools have been successfully built, providing vital educational infrastructure to underserved communities.
During the visit from April 27-30l, Shelley will explore the newly constructed eco-block school in the remote community of Lombok.
Shelley said she was elated on being selected for the trip and chance to learn more about the sustainable building of schools in the region.
“It is an amazing opportunity to meet the wonderful Indonesian team and see the incredible work they have done, rebuilding schools and homes out of recycled plastic bricks following the devastation of Lombok after the 2018 earthquakes,” she said.
“I am looking forward to exploring the innovative eco-block school building project and engaging with locals, which will provide valuable insights and an enriching experience for me to share with people back home.”
