IT'S Already Tomorrow in Sydney
This is where the settlers first landed and Australia was birthed. This cove has come a long way from being a penal colony of Britain to becoming one of the economic hubs of the Asia Pacific. Today it is a vibrant, multicultural, dynamic melting pot where everyone is welcome.
Sydney never stays stagnant. It is always evolving, always surprising. Always endeavouring to push itself to stay ahead of the curve. There is an aesthetic sense about the place. A certain beauty found everywhere, emanating through the centuries, reflected in historical sandstone edifices, the Harbour Bridge, and the Opera House.
Sydney is the New York of the Southern Hemisphere. Rich in history and culture. Filled with diverse cultures, all coexisting peacefully. Imbibing the spirit of the nation with the optimism and enthusiasm of immigrants. Retaining its glorious past while edging towards an even more glorious future.
Nothing that you will learn in the course of your studies will be of the slightest possible use to you in after life, save only this -
That if you work hard and intelligently you should be able to detect when a man is talking rot, and that, in my view, is the main, if not the sole, purpose of education”
— John Alexander Smith
“The richness of the soil, the bright foliage of the shrubs, the majesty of the surrounding trees, the abrupt and red coloured banks of the river occasionally seen, and the view of the blue summits of the mountains, from which we are not far distant, made the scenery around this spot as beautiful as anything of the kind I had ever witnessed”
— Sir James Stirling
“I have never seen anything in my life as beautiful as Wellington harbor. Sydney is nothing to it. Great mountains all round coming down to the water’s edge – the far-off ones with snow on them. Blue sky and deep blue water and Wellington itself nestling on the side of the mountain.”
— Agatha Christie
