IALF Bali recently welcomed the Australian Minister for Early Childhood Education and Youth, Dr Anne Aly MP. Dr Aly was accompanied by Ms. Anthea Griffin, the Consul-General in Bali and was welcomed by Caroline Bentley, IALF Bali Manager and Vlad Pejovic, Director of Studies for Academic English.


The Minister had the chance to take a tour of the IALF Bali campus, which included the Resource Centre, the Young Learners Centre and other spaces where students interact and spend their time during out-of-class activities. Dr Aly also met with and viewed the work and achievements of our young learners’ students and had a discussion session with the Australia Awards Scholarships recipients who are currently undertaking their Pre-Departure Training at IALF Bali, before starting their Master’s or PhD courses in Australia.

Dr Aly’s visit to Bali was part of her attendance for the G20 Education Ministers’ Meeting to share the Australian Government’s priorities in education as a key driver of economic growth, equity, and employment. Held over two days, the meeting brought together G20 members to share their vision for securing future global economic growth and prosperity through education.

According to the Australian Minister, the G20 Education Ministers’ Meeting was a valuable opportunity for open conversations on shared challenges in education delivery and to learn from each other to strengthen international relationships.

"Consolidating education partnerships with a number of our key international partners will be my focus, as the challenges we face in Australia are not unique to us and occur within all G20 member countries.” Dr Aly concluded.
