Lord Mayor’s Welcome for International Students

The event happens annually with the objective of helping overseas students to settle in Australia.

Every year, hundreds of newly arrived international students attend the Lord Mayor’s Welcome event, promoted by the City of Sydney. Just like in the previous editions, the ceremony will take place in the historic Sydney Town Hall, on April 11th at 6 PM.

This is an opportunity for those who are starting their educational journey here to find out more about institutions that can support them along their way in Australia.

Attending this ceremony will help overseas students to learn more about the local culture, connect to people from different background and have access to wellbeing and welfare exhibits.

The event will be entirely free, however, students need to register first.

The spots are limited, so if you wish to go, we recommend you to make your registration as soon as possible.

Virtual Classes !

Times Academy, while not having any cases of COVID-19, has decided to deliver Times Virtual Classes online to protect its students and staff from unnecessary contact and exposure to COVID-19.  Times Academy is unique in that we have young students and adults on the same campus and this means an increased duty of care to all.

The teachers will use Mon Mar 23 to prepare Times Virtual Classes and students will be provided with materials to work from home on that day.  From Tue Mar 24, 2020 ,we will launch Times Virtual Classes for all students to our regular timetable.  Teachers and staff will be on campus and students may come to campus to use computers there.

The current plan is to implement Times Virtual Classes until Apr 3, 2020, but this decision will be reviewed at that time.
