The Canberra Multicultural Community Forum will work with the ACT Government to ensure the success of next month’s Multicultural Youth Fourum.
I’m moving to Canberra soon with my daughter and as we are not native speakers of English, I’m thinking of enrolling her for a school with a chance of ‘catching up’ with her English skills.
