Leichhardt links firmed up another notch on 5 November, when the Ludwig-Leichhardt-Gymnasium (senior school) in Cottbus signed a Memorandum of Understanding on student exchange with Henley High School in Adelaide.
The MoU was signed in the margins of the ICEF international education conference, which was held in Berlin from 3-5 November. At the ceremony the Ludwig-Leichhardt-Gymnasium was presented with a framed map of Australia, a gift from Queensland Senator Sue Boyce. Our thanks to the Australian Embassy, Berlin for these photos and report.
