Special programs and initiatives

We seek to maintain our close connection with the Prato community through a range of special programs and initiatives.

One of the ways in which we do this is by organising and hosting a wide range of cultural events.

We showcase Australian and international visual and performing arts through our Visual Residency program.

Initiatives such as Conversation Exchange, family lunch and dinners, and volunteering in local schools, contribute to a vibrant Student Life experience as well as opportunities for engagement with the Prato community.

Other community engagement initiatives include:
