AustrAliAn students Students who are Australian citizens or holders of permanent humanitarian visas are eligible for a HECS-HELP loan, and do not have to pay their student contribution amount up-front. This means you pay nothing while you study, and then pay back your student contribution amount in small instalments when you are working. You can read about HECS – HELP loans in detail at Some students choose to pay their student contribution amount up front and receive a discount on the amount paid. It is important to note that permanent residents and New Zealand citizens must normally pay their student contribution amount upfront. Full details of the HECS-HELP scheme, your eligibility and repayment options are available at the Going to Uni website

internAtionAl students International students pay the full cost of their tuition, and they are not able to defer the payment of their student contribution amount. Other costs that all students need to plan for include books, equipment, field trips (for some courses), internet costs, and the cost of accommodation, transport and living expenses.


Each University has an Accommodation Service to help students find a suitable place to live. As well as accommodation owned and managed by the Universities, they can give you advice and information about residential colleges, hostels, homestay arrangements, and the private rental market. Visit these web sites to learn more about the help you can obtain, and to make contact with the Accommodation Services.

“It gave the students a much clearer understanding of what it is like to be in the workforce – the deadlines, the limitations, the excitement, the importance of teamwork, and all the other pressures and pleasures of working in news media.” Dwayne Blee, UniSA film and TV lecturer

Film, Video and Journalism Students

The quality of graduates was demonstrated by three young health science researchers from UniSA’s Sansom Institute being awarded 2007 Young Tall Poppy Science Awards, with Dr Craig Williams also being named the South Australian Young Tall Poppy of the Year. Their contributions related to knowledge about genetic diseases, debilitating viruses and the causes of obesity.

Film and video production and journalism students worked as reporters and camera crew at the 2007 World Police and Fire Games in 2007, joining TAFE students and industry professionals to produce TV news stories for broadcast at the event.

Engaged Students Student engagement is fundamental to UniSA, with experiential learning central to our new Teaching and Learning Framework. Maintenance of relationships with Alumni in Australia and throughout the world extends this emphasis on active community linkages involving students and graduates.

Community Clinics UniSA student clinics offer educational experience in various disciplines while bringing valuable resources to disadvantaged communities. The Mammography Clinic, for example, enables diagnostic radiographers to undertake theoretical and practical postgraduate study in conjunction with Breast Screen SA.


UNAP facilitated other clinics through the Northern Adelaide Health and Wellbeing Project. The education model for these requires community based work supervised by experienced clinical educators who ensure that duty of care, service quality, and learning outcomes are achieved.

Clinics in disciplines such as psychology, social work, podiatry and physiotherapy also go some way to addressing long waiting lists and times. A Northern Area Clinic began providing physiotherapy and podiatry services in July 2006 in the Playford Community Health Centre (Davoren Park), while a Physiotherapy Student Clinic in Adelaide runs like a professional private practice but offers discounted fees for pensioners, students, and the unemployed. An Options Coordination Physiotherapy Clinic also is run by students with community partners Brain Injury Options Coordination and Adult Physical and Neurological Options Coordination.

Graduate Qualities The University’s education programs develop desired graduate qualities, including command of a body of knowledge in sufficient depth to begin professional practice. Graduates are prepared for life‑long learning in pursuit of personal development and excellence in professional practice and are expected to be effective communicators and community members. UniSA strives to ensure that graduates have international perspectives as professionals and as citizens, and are committed to ethical action and social responsibility.

Service learning also features within other disciplines. For Social Work, ‘field education’ constitutes a quarter of an undergraduate degree or occurs as supervised practice for postgraduates. Similarly, supervised undergraduate students provide free podiatry advice to children of low‑income families through Child and Youth Health’s Podiatry Program.

Professional marketers: in demand

Some of the positions that Management graduates may apply for include: project officer, senior project officer, project coordinator, project manager, executive officer, business manager, strategic planning manger, public policy manager, and corporate manager eventually leading to general management roles.

As a graduate of UniSA’s Marketing program you’ll understand the importance of marketing in daily business life. Almost every organisation has ideas, services or products that they want the public to accept, support or buy. And to do this, they need highly skilled marketing professionals like you!

Marketing, Public Relations and Advertising Professionals

Vacancy levels:


Marketing activity has traditionally been driven by the size of the market place and the level of economic activity. An increasing population and strong economic growth in Australia over the past ten years has resulted in consistent growth in the demand for people with marketing, advertising and sales skills. New business ideas and opportunities have been created by the rapid growth in electronic communication and the expansion of global trading. However, these developments have also produced a more competitive environment within which suppliers need to use contemporary and innovative marketing in order to reach their target audiences.

Vacancy reasons:

44% Job change 47% Leaving occupation 9% New jobs

General Managers and project and program administrators have seen especially strong employment growth over the past decade. Which Companies? Many organisations offer graduate management traineeship programs, including Telstra, Coles Myer, Commonwealth Bank, CSR, IBM, National Australia Bank and more. State and Federal Government Departments also offer graduate management traineeship programs as well as the opportunity to commence work in positions such as project officer or project manager.

Australian employment in marketing, public relations, advertising and sales has increased by over 20 percent in the last five years to around 1.2 million people. Understandably, the Australian Government predicts growth prospects for people with specialist skills in marketing, public relations and advertising to be good to very good over the next decade.

The wholesale and retail sector absorbs around a third of marketing, public relations and advertising professionals, with a further third employed by the property and business services and manufacturing sectors. The communication, cultural, health, government and education sectors all offer significant employment opportunities for marketing graduates, providing an extensive window of opportunity for job seekers to find work across a diverse range of industry sectors.

The 2009 Virtual Careers Fair, hosted by Graduate Careers Australia (GCA), has again proven to be a popular event for university students who are in the market for graduate jobs. The Virtual Careers Fair (VCF) was founded in 2000 by careers service staff at the University of New England (UNE) as an opportunity for students who would otherwise be unable to attend an on-campus careers fair to have access to information about employers, graduate job opportunities and other important career information. The VCF was managed as a joint venture by UNE and GCA up until 2007. GCA has hosted the VCF ever since. Over the years, the VCF has increased in popularity with students, employers and universities alike, with the 2009 VCF featuring 75 exhibitors and 47 supporting universities from Australia and New Zealand. The 2009 VCF was ‘attended’ by more than 13,000 online visitors between 23 March and 9 April 2009. In all, the pages of the VCF website were viewed more than 137,000 times. The 2009 VCF provided a range of useful resources to help students find a suitable graduate job. As a starting point, students were able to search through 75 exhibitor profiles for suitable graduate employment based on their study area and location using the Job Search function, and could access a wealth of general careers information on the website. Students could also participate in the ever-popular live chat sessions with representatives from graduate employers and university careers services, and could play the Interview Game and Get the Look Get the Job quizzes to help them make a good first impression in a job interview. A range of helpful multimedia podcasts from exhibitors and university careers services could also be downloaded from the VCF Pod Centre. A festive atmosphere

Ella Pope – Bachelor of Arts (Media and Communication), University of Melbourne

was maintained in cyberspace through daily prize draws for students who completed mini-surveys on the VCF website or participated in live chat sessions. International students, who made up nearly 40 per cent of VCF attendees, were also catered for, with three migration experts hosting chat sessions.

Describe your volunteer involvement for The Oaktree Foundation.

Ella is currently undertaking a public affairs internship with the Darfur Australia Network (DAN) as part of her degree course requirements. She also volunteers for The Oaktree Foundation’s ‘Schools4Schools’ (S4S) initiative.

As in previous years, feedback from VCF participants has been highly favourable, with the vast majority of students praising the VCF for its usefulness as a job search tool, as well as the visually appealing and easy to use website. Overall, 56 per cent of students who responded to the VCF feedback survey rating their overall impression of the VCF as being either ‘very good’ or ‘good’, with a further 36 per cent of students rating it satisfactory. A mere eight per cent of students found the 2009 VCF less than satisfactory. An overwhelming 80 per cent of students considered the 2009 VCF to be a useful part of their job search activities.

What attracted you to interning with DAN? The fact that DAN was primarily an advocacy organisation was really important to me, and that it placed a priority on involving Australian-based Darfuri community members. It is a grassroots organisation that has a passionate and genuine commitment to the community. What were your responsibilities as an intern?

The VCF website remained open until July so that jobseekers could view chat transcripts, download podcasts, take quizzes and access all of the other graduate employment information on the website. The ongoing value of the VCF as a job search tool was evidenced by the fact that even after the close of the Fair, over 3,000 visitors accessed the site. With many students today trying to balance study and employment, a careers fair that can be visited by anyone at anytime from anywhere remains an important tool for those seeking employment after university.

My primary responsibility was completing a research policy paper for DAN on how it can improve its media policy for addressing bias in the Australian media, with regards to the ICC decision to arrest Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir. I have participated in fundraising activities, and also contributed to some of the logistics regarding our exhibition ‘Far to Here’ in Canberra and to designing the structure for our internship program for Darfuri community members.

I have enjoyed the social interactions of being in the workplace but I have also learned a lot about how to be part of a highly efficient team and about the processes of public policy in general.

Monica is undertaking a work placement in Forest Management with the Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) as part of a cooperative program run through Monash University. You’re originally from Melbourne. What attracted you to a regional university campus? I attended a number of open days for metropolitan campuses including Monash University, Clayton Campus. It was there I found out about the ‘Co-operative Education Program’ that provided work placement as part of my degree. Whilst at the open day, I learned of the Applied Science and Environmental Management course at Gippsland. I wanted to apply for a regional campus for the smaller class sizes and to be closer to the environment I wanted to work in.

assessments for recreation sites in State forest. I have also had the opportunity to work with various community groups within the district, and aid in logistic tasks during the recent bushfire season. What have you enjoyed most about this experience? The most enjoyable part of forest management is having the outdoors as my office. The work placement has given me the opportunity to explore and work in areas I never knew existed. I have been able to increase my knowledge in biodiversity and have enhanced my skills through professional development in Geographical Information Systems, four-wheel drive and fire fighter training.

“Taking part in the co-op program and working with the DSE has given me a direction and provided me with the skills required to pursue a career in forest, conservation and natural area management.” Monica Mains

What appealed most about the DSE program? I enjoyed forest and natural area management classes most at uni, and thought that placement at the DSE would give me the opportunity to explore these topics more. Before I started my placement I spent a day with a student completing their DSE program. This gave me insight into the tasks involved in environmental management and convinced me to apply. What are your responsibilities at the DSE? I have had the opportunity to participate in team and individual projects. Recently, I have been working on a number of information boards to replace those lost in bushfires, and have undertaken risk

Colette Keech joined GCA back in 2004, soon after migrating to Australia. She was initially employed as a Temp to help out with the administrative side of the Australian Graduate Survey (AGS) form coding process for six weeks, but has now almost clocked up her fifth year! She has seen a few changes in that time. Originally from a small town called Marple nestled in the foothills of the Pennines (known for having the highest canals in England) near Manchester, Colette embarked on a year working holiday in Australia in 2000 after completing a Bachelor of Fine Art in 1999 at Nottingham Trent University. She met her partner, Nathan (originally from Adelaide), in Sydney while travelling. Colette enjoys now calling Melbourne home, and has developed a taste for a good flat white, but not quite AFL yet! She can often be found at weekends ‘urban hiking’ through the streets and laneways of Melbourne while checking out the local street art, or cycling on one of Melbourne’s bike trails. She also participated in last year’s Round the Bay in a Day 50km bike ride, and hopes to ride again in October this year. Now one of the longest serving employees, Colette continues to enjoy the hectic GCA atmosphere with its daily challenges, and hopes to continue to make a valuable contribution to the day-to-day running of the business in the future.

Jesse Gerner joined GCA in February 2009 with a background in print journalism and television broadcasting/production. Born and raised in Melbourne to an American mother and Australian father, Jesse spent his childhood as a transcontinental vacationer, visiting American relatives on short holidays that piqued his passion for travel, cultural variety and exploration.


After completing secondary school in Melbourne, the allure of his Bostonian heritage proved too great, and he ventured to ‘Beantown’ to complete a Bachelor of Arts (History/ Environmental Studies) at Tufts University in 2006. As an avid sports observer and part-time baseball fanatic, the opportunity to establish roots in Boston afforded Jesse the chance to explore the American sports and cultural canvasses. Jesse complemented his academic endeavours with time in print and television media, serving as a sports writer and editor for collegiate and professional sports, including for the Boston Globe newspaper. He also worked as a production assistant for the New England Sports Network (NESN), one of the largest regional cable television networks in the United States.


After nearly six years of balmy summers, subzero winters, and complaints from Melbourne-based family and friends about the cost of shipping Tim Tams internationally, Jesse was finally drawn back to Aussie shores in 2008. His first six months with GCA and Graduate Opportunities have proved immensely enjoyable, working on a diverse range of print and electronic media responsibilities with an intelligent, close-knit staff that works hard in a challenging industry. When not wielding a red pen or composing advertorial prose, Jesse enjoys cooking, living vicariously through the musical talents of others, and exploring Melbourne’s laneway culture.

Figure 2: Examples of desirable employee attributes and BBI approaches to questioning.

Step 4: Seeking Contrary Evidence

Step 5: maintain Control of the Interview

Remember Brian, my co-worker, who said, “I can tell within five minutes whether or not I’m going to hire them”? Brian had a gut feeling about people. There’s nothing wrong with having a gut feeling unless you let it guide all of your hiring decisions. Gut feelings are important but they can also lead to poor hiring decisions.

Equip your recruiters with pre-written and prepared questions (See Figure 2). In addition, use or create an evaluation form that lists each of the attributes along with an area for the recruiter to rate each of the student’s responses.

If, for example, you feel that the candidate you’re interviewing is arrogant, there are questions that you can ask to test your theory. For example: “John, tell me about a time when your confidence served you well during a recent internship.” Don’t stop there. Seek contrary evidence: “Okay, John, tell me about a time when your confidence hampered your success.” This is called seeking contrary evidence. You never want to get a one-sided picture of a candidate. Be sure to incorporate questions to balance the positive with the negative. Each time you ask a question that may reveal something negative, ask the student “What did you learn from that?” (See Figure 2 for information to better understand attributes, BBI questions and contrary evidence.)

Contrary Evidence Describe a situation in which you went against core values to accomplish something. What did you learn?

Team player

Able to create strong morale and spirit in her/his team; shares wins, successes, responsibility and accountability; fosters open dialogue.

Tell me about a time when you were able to find common ground when working in a team to achieve a result.

Tell me about a situation where you were unable to motivate a team to achieve a goal. What did you learn?


Comes up with new and unique ideas; easily makes connections among previously unrelated notions.

Tell me about a time when you looked beyond the obvious to find an unusual solution.

Can you tell me about a time when you were unable to come up with a creative way to solve a problem?

Honest, trustworthy and demonstrates integrity

Is widely trusted; is seen as direct, truthful individual; keeps confidences.

Describe a time when you told the truth when it would have been easier not to.

Tell me about a time when you didn’t admit to a mistake. What did you learn?

Perhaps one of the most compelling reasons to use behaviouralbased interviewing (other than its ability to help your organisation make better hiring decisions) is that students have come to expect it. If your recruiting team comes on campus unprepared and untrained in interviewing, students will know. Besides, candidates would rather get a job with a company that truly evaluated them rather than a company that simply ‘liked’ them.

Walking into an interview with a list of prepared questions is the best way to maintain control of the interview. Following are some tips to help you:

• Be certain that all answers contain situation, action, outcome and learning.

• Seek contrary evidence. • Use silence (answering a BBI question takes time; don’t try to fill the space. Let the student think). • If the student rambles, interrupt and tell the student that you’d like to continue on with your questions so that you don’t run out of time. • If the student avoids direct answers or is silent for an extended period of time, you may move to closed questions and return to open-ended questions once he or she has regained composure.

Employing international students and skilled migrants can bring a



THE BENEFITS OF EmPLOyING INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS AND SKILLED mIGRANTS by Hutch Hussein (Business Development manager, Spectrum migrant Resource Centre) Recruiting international students and skilled migrants means going beyond the traditional applicant pool and gaining an edge at a time of high-skill demands. Whilst unemployment is rising, this will not necessarily solve skills shortages. Furthermore, whilst the Federal Government has recently reduced the skilled migration intake, this has made the program more targeted as restrictions are predominantly in trade areas where recently unemployed locals can undertake on-the-job training.

benefits such employees can bring. The reasons often cited by employers for not recruiting international students and/or skilled migrants are as follows – you may be able to identify with some of them:

Hence, in this era of continued skilled shortage, accessing these non-traditional cohorts allows employers to have an expanded pool of labour from which to pick. The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI), which represents over 350,000 businesses, in its National Education and Training Survey (2007) indicated that 74 per cent of employers believe Australia will only be able to fully address its current local skill shortages by supplementing these through skilled migration.

• Will they fit into my workplace?


Questions Can you tell me about a time when you felt you had to make an unpopular decision based on your beliefs and values?

According to Katharine Hansen, creative director diverse and associate set of publisher of Quintessential Careers, behavioural-based interviewing is to 55the per cent predictive of future attributes on-the-job behaviour while traditional interviewing is only 10 per cent predictive. workplace.

Behaviours Adheres to an appropriate and effective set of core values and beliefs during both good and bad times; acts in line with those values.


Expanding your recruitment pool can prove invaluable to your market and clientele.

Often employers don’t actively seek to employ graduating international students or recruit internationally because they don’t know the process involved or don’t fully understand the

Attribute Strong work ethic

• The company doesn’t know the immigration rules/ regulations or understand the visa migration process. • Do the applicants have proper command of the English language? • Are they reliable?

• Will the skills they have be adaptable here? • Why invest in students if I don’t know whether I can employ them when they graduate? • How much is it going to cost my business? • Surely the process is too complex and time-consuming? • Can’t afford the time it takes between identifying someone and getting them working in Australia… • I’d want to meet someone face-to-face before bringing them out…

We know that, as employers, you often need to be convinced of the benefits before you even consider what’s involved in utilising such local and/or overseas workers. Like most of Australia’s multicultural population, international students and skilled migrants are bilingual and bicultural – and this can assist employers to understand their marketplace and tap into different networks. Whether it is banks or mining companies wishing to raise their profile and increase their customers from particular communities, migrant workers can bring bicultural intelligence that gives businesses an edge and saves money on marketing to find out the same information. Employers have reported to Spectrum that their businesses have gained an edge by employing migrants because they: • grow with the business when they’re employed as graduates and learn quickly

• are reliable as they don’t want to jeopardise their visa conditions • are motivated, keen and loyal workers because of the ‘real opportunity’ provided to them, as reflected in their ‘good work ethic’

Whilst they will have consolidated their English language skills through their education programs, new Australian friends and their part-time workplace experience, some international students may have difficulties adjusting to an Australian business culture. This can be addressed by workshops to induct groups of employees, or more intensive phone and/or face-toface support could be provided by an ‘On the Job Coach’.

Once an employee is placed, their ‘On the Job Coach’ could provide support for both the employee and employer, which would be extensive and be conducted via phone or visitation for a duration negotiated with each placement. Employers often find that this assists with long-term retention and staff satisfaction.

Given the huge investment that is often made by employers in recruitment generally, employers also need to focus on staff retention, and international students and skilled migrants are no different.

RmARk Catherine has been fortunate to enjoy a diverse and interesting career in the public sector. Catherine joined the Department of Communications while studying Fine Arts and English Literature at the Australian National University in the early 1980s, and was soon working as a researcher in the Australian Broadcasting Tribunal. It was exciting times for Australian broadcasting policy, with the introduction of satellite broadcasting, the Bond Inquiry, the proliferation of radio and television services across the nation and major inquiries into the standards governing the level of Australian content on television, children’s television standards and advertising standards. From broadcasting and communications, Catherine moved into the cultural policy space, working as an adviser to the Commonwealth Minister for the Arts. After a short segue through documentary film editing, Catherine worked as a policy officer at the National Film and Sound Archive and then joined the Department responsible for the Arts. This involved, at various times, helping to establish the National Portrait Gallery at Old Parliament House, managing Australian Government support for the Film Industry, coordinating the department’s involvement in the Sydney Olympics, managing the department’s internal governance unit, and implementing the recommendations of the Myer Inquiry into Contemporary Visual Art.


Before joining the Education department, Catherine led the development of a cross-government strategy to support Indigenous art centres.

Catherine is excited to be working in higher Education at a time when education is such a key priority for governments – and the importance of education in improving life chances for individuals and creating a future for all of us seems to be widely recognised. Catherine welcomes the opportunity to be a part of the GCA Board. GCA is uniquely placed to inform the Government in relation to graduate employment issues, and the information provided by the Australian Graduate Survey is increasingly important to Higher Education policy development.

Theravada The Theravada School adheres strictly to the original teachings of Buddha as contained in the Pali canon (scripture) and emphasises the goal of personal salvation for the individual follower. The importance of the community of monks is also characteristic of the Theravada tradition. Theravada countries include Thailand, Burma, Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Laos.

Buddha means


‘The Awakened One’. A Buddha is a person who

is self-aware, and has wisdom and compassion.

Questions to Guide Reflection on Culture •

What seems normal or strange to me? What sort of student/staff behaviour am I most familiar or comfortable with? What surprises or challenges me?

What do I know about my student and staff colleagues?

What experiences do I have as a result of studying/working in different cultures and how can I use this?

What do I know about the cultural and education systems of my student and staff colleagues?

How current/accurate is my information?

Make the class a safe place for all students •

Establish a classroom in which teachers and students demonstrate mutual respect.

Manage behaviour that might stimulate ‘classroom incivilities’.

prejudice; and

neglecting the needs of individual students or groups of students.

Set up an introduction system so that all students can get to know something about you, their class colleagues and the diversity of experience in the class.

Student incivility can manifest as: –

poor punctuality;

Ensure the content/activities you use in class values the experience of all your students.

lack of preparation for or non‑participation in classes;

On your WebCT site talk about your approach to learning and teaching; include some information about your own cultural origin and any cross‑cultural teaching/learning experience you may have had .

disruption of classes;

distraction of teacher and fellow students; and


Provide opportunities for students to introduce themselves to you and other students through online postings on WebCT.

Establish appropriate modes of address •

If you interact one on one with students, ask what form of address they prefer.

Use inclusive language that doesn’t assume Western name forms; e.g.

Students from more formal educational cultures, where status differences related to age or educational qualifications are important, might be uncomfortable in addressing teaching staff by their given names. A compromise can be for students to use your title and given name e.g. Professor Marie’, ‘Dr Ivan’.

If in doubt, ask.

’family’ name, not ‘last’ name;

’given’ name, not ‘Christian’ name.

See TIPS Leadership and Administration: Guidance on Naming Systems


Right Speech – controlling one’s speech so that it does not harm others, for example, avoiding lying, gossip and slander.

Right Action – avoiding actions considered harmful to oneself or any other living creatures.

Right Livelihood – earning a living in a way that does not cause harm or suffering to others, for example, avoiding occupations that involve the selling of intoxicants, firearms or animals for slaughter.

Right Effort – exerting a constant attentiveness to lifestyle.

The Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path


Life is subject to mental and physical suffering and frustration (dukkha).


The origin or cause of dukkha can be attributed to selfishness and desiring/craving things for oneself, for example, sensual pleasures, wealth and power.

Right Mindfulness – constant awareness about the effects of one’s actions so as to avoid harmful actions.

Right Concentration – attaining serenity by cultivating the mind through meditation.

Buddhism has no prescribed dress code for lay Buddhists, except that they wear clothing that covers the shoulders and legs.

Place and style of worship

Buddhist monks and nuns shave their heads and wear a robe that is usually brown, tan, orange, red, maroon or grey (depending on the tradition).

Dietary requirements and restrictions Regulations governing food depends on which branch of Buddhism is practised and in what country. •

Establish inclusive class ground rules that safeguard against racism and harassment. –

In small classes, guide students to negotiate their own code of conduct.

In larger classes, provide a framework and ask for student feedback and ratification of ground rules.

Define how class members discuss issues, especially potentially sensitive issues. For example, ‘People must have valid support/evidence for what they say’ .

Appreciate the challenges and adjustment stresses •

When people live and work in a new culture, they may experience ‘culture shock’. This is characterised by a series of phases influencing how people perceive and respond to others and events around them. For further information, see General Information Folio 4: Understanding and Supporting People Experiencing Culture Shock

Recognise that people for whom English is an additional language can experience frustration and isolation from not being able to express themselves fully in English, especially when they are used to being highly successful in their own language and culture.

Meat and fish are generally not eaten by the Theravada and Mahayana traditions because it is considered bad karma (since animals can be reincarnated as humans and vice versa).

Some followers of the Mahayana and Theravada tradition are also vegans.

Buddhists from China and Vietnam usually do not eat onion, garlic or leek. Commonly referred to as ‘five pungent spices’, these foods are believed to increase one’s sexual desire and anger.

Buddhist monastics fast from all food on the new and full moon of each lunar month.

Buddhists generally abstain from mind altering substances such as alcohol.

Significant Buddhist Festivals and Celebration Dates

Dancing dragons, lanterns made out of paper and wood, releasing caged birds and making origami paper crane decorations are others ways in which Wesak Day is celebrated across different traditions. Offerings of food to monks and flowers/incense for shrines and temples are also made as signs of respect.

Buddhist festivals provide an opportunity for celebrating and expressing devotion and appreciation of the Buddha and his teachings. The dates and the way that festivals are celebrated vary between countries and Buddhist traditions. With the exception of Japan, most Buddhists use the lunar calendar.

Buddha Day is celebrated on the first full moon day in May except in a leap year when it is held in June.

Dharma Day (Asalha Puja Day/Buddhist Teaching)

For specific dates, see the Cultural Diversity calendar at:

The teachings of the Buddha are known as the Dharma. This is celebrated on Dharma Day. Dharma Day is often celebrated with readings from Buddhist scriptures, providing an opportunity to reflect on their contents. Collective ritual celebrations in a ceremonial manner are also common.

Buddha Day Considered the most important festival of the Buddhist year, Buddha Day commemorates the birth and enlightenment of Buddha in Mahayana Buddhist countries. In Theravada countries, Buddha Day is also known as Wesak Day. It differs from Mahayana Buddhism in that it celebrates the birth, enlightenment and death of the Buddha. Buddha Day is commonly celebrated with the ‘Bathing of Buddha’ whereby water is poured over the shoulders of the Buddha as a reminder of the need to purify the heart and mind.

Dharma Day is celebrated on the full moon day of July.


Use a respectful tone of verbal and non‑verbal communication. Be aware that there may be an unconscious inclination to ‘talk down’ or to talk simplistically to international students or local speakers of other languages if English is not their first language.

Treat diversity positively

Teacher incivility can include:


Right Thought – genuinely wishing to break free from desire.


What can I say about myself and my own culture? What national, ethnic or religious group(s) do I belong to? How does my teaching reflect this?

Right Understanding – knowledge that the Four Noble Truths lead to overcoming dukkha.

Buddhist symbols


One attains the state of nirvana by following the Eightfold Path: •

Worship is commonly in the form of chanting Buddha’s teachings, meditation and mantras (single sounds such as Om or Aum repeated constantly).

The overcoming of dukkha is known as nirvana – a state of mind that transcends desire and suffering.


The Vajrayana School’s interpretation of the teachings is essentially the same as the Mahayana School but differs in that it emphasises the importance of a personal guru (teacher) who initiates his followers into what has been called ‘secret teachings’ (tantra). Meditation and special sayings known as mantras are also characteristic of the Vajrayana tradition. Vajrayana countries include Tibet, Mongolia, northern India and Nepal. The Dalai Lama is the spiritual head of the Tibetan branch of Buddhism.

Buddhist dress code

The main place of worship for a Buddhist is the temple, which often includes a shrine and a statue of Buddha. Buddhists make offerings of flowers, light candles and incense and engage in meditation.



Buddhist Religious Observance

The most popular symbol of Buddhism is the Buddha statue. Other symbols of Buddhism include the eight auspicious symbols such as the Dharma wheel with its eight spokes that refers to the Eightfold Path. There is the lotus flower which often represents the inherently pure potential of the mind. Stupas or temples which have tiered, domed shaped rooves with a golden spire at the top, represent the steps to the enlightened mind of a Buddha. The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion that is being built near Bendigo is an example of this.

Zen Buddhism, a branch of Mahayana Buddhism, strongly emphasises the practice of meditation. Mahayana countries include Tibet, northern India, Nepal, China, Japan, Vietnam and Korea.

The central teachings of all schools of Buddhism are based on the Four Noble Truths:

The Mahayana School is not as strict as the Theravada School in its interpretation of the monastic code of conduct. The importance of followers becoming bodhisattvas for the salvation of living beings is emphasised.

: Buddhists believe the Truths’ and follow • in the ‘Four Noble ‘Eightfold Path’; permanent; world is fixed or • nothing in the ced by past • everyone is influen actions (karma); form, can occur in human • in rebirth that state ghost, in a blissful animal form, as a or in a state of woe.

TIPS for Designing a Culturally Inclusive Learning and Teaching Environment

There are different traditions in Buddhism but the central teaching is common – the teaching of Buddha Sakyamuni. The differences between the schools of Buddhism rest on the emphasis they place on particular aspects of the teachings and the interpretation of rules governing the conduct of the sangha (Buddhist spiritual community).

Dear Parent, Oakhill College is a Catholic Independent Secondary College conducted in the tradition of the De La Salle Brothers and serving the Diocese of Parramatta. Enrolment is boys only for Years 7 – 10 and co-educational in Years 11 and 12. We have a total enrolment of 1600 students.

Br Ken Ormerod Principal

As a Catholic school, our first priority is to our Religious Education program which is compulsory for all students. The College also celebrates its Catholicity through its liturgical and prayer programs and by encouraging our young people to be engaged in social action and missionary work.

Telephone: 9899 2288 Facsimile: 9634 0875 Mobile: 0431 141 829 Email:

Over the years our energetic Drama and Music departments have established a reputation for excellence. A major musical is scheduled every second year and there are always opportunities for young performers to display their talents. Agriculture continues to be an attraction for students of the College and many students who do not follow the curriculum-based course, enjoy participation in the Show Team, which presents animals at the Royal Easter Show, Castle Hill Show and other local show grounds.

Oakhill College aims to produce citizens who are sensitive and committed to spiritual values and who are able to take their place as well-rounded contributors to our society.

‘Reaching the Shore’ (Conductor: Mr S Carpenter)

Alexandra Hegmann Josiah Lulham Luke Southwell Chloe Wilson Joshua Yi

This premiere performance by the Golden Orchestra continues a growing tradition of commissioning original works for the School. We thank Ben Deane-Johns for his musical inspiration and Mr Stephen Carpenter for his unstinting support for local composers and introducing our students to contemporary performance.

Golden Orchestra ‘Amigos Para Siempre’ (Conductor: Mr S Carpenter) Leading tonight’s program is the Golden Orchestra. This ensemble was formed in 1992 and has performed continuously since. The Golden Orchestra takes its name with permission of the Golden family in memory of Tom Golden, a student of the school from 1967 – 1973, who was deeply influenced by his involvement with music. Tonight, the Orchestra is joined by singers Nikita Miltiadou and Lana Murphy to present the anthem from the Barcelona Olympics.

The String Orchestra is the School’s longest running instrumental ensemble and boasts a distinguished roll call of past members. Tonight they play a piece based on the Argentinean Tango, originally written for Accordion, Saxophone, Clarinet and Bass. We were given the score by Tamagawa Academy in Tokyo after their performance at Ivanhoe last year. Tonight’s arrangement was edited by Mr Darko Kolosov.

Wednesday 29 July

‘Cello Concerto’ (Conductor: Mr S Carpenter) Concertos form the highest peak of musical expression between a soloist and ensemble and we are delighted to welcome Stephen Yuen to the Hamer Hall stage. Stephen is a gifted young musician who is noted for his sensitive performances on Cello and Piano. Edouard Lalo wrote his Cello Concerto in D minor during 1876, in collaboration with Parisian cellist Adolphe Fischer. Tonight, Stephen will present the Concerto with the Golden Orchestra.
