Where We Are in Place and Time

Guest Speaker – Mrs Buultjens

Last Wednesday, Tim Buultjens’s grandmother came to talk about her migration story. She migrated from Sri Lanka in 1987 because there was instability. Part of the reason she migrated from Sri Lanka is that her sister wanted to go to Australia. The only way her sister could go to Australia was by the Family Reunion Scheme. To be able to access the Family Reunion Scheme you must have all of your family in a different country to you. That is part of the reason that Tim’s grandmother had to go to Australia. When Tim’s grandmother went to Australia she and her husband had to find new jobs and their experience in work in Sri Lanka was forgotten. It was a great talk and it was very interesting.
