The ABC has the thrilling news that Canberra Grammar is getting, on top of its enormous fees and government top ups, $8 million of Terry Snow’s money to ensure the ruling elite are well placed for the next generation:
Businessman Terry Snow has donated $8 million to his former school Canberra Grammar to build a new Asian century centre.
It is one of the largest single donations to an Australian school and will be spent on a new building for teaching Asian languages, geography, history, economics and culture.
Mr Snow says he was inspired by the vision of Canberra Grammar principal Justin Garrick to prepare students for Australia’s increasing engagement with the region.
Gap years in China would do more good IMHO.
