An educational leader

When Dulari Gonawala arrived in Australia with her husband and young family nine years ago, she had no idea she’d go on to win a national award as an early childhood education leader. Dulari had previously worked as a high school teacher in Sri Lanka. Not wanting to waste her valuable teacher training, she began studying part-time through Southern Cross University while working full-time in childcare.

“I realised I could progress my career and income level significantly, so I did a lot of research and found Southern Cross University where I could study completely online. It was a challenge with two kids under two and working full-time, but my lecturers at Southern Cross wereincredibly supportive, and my husband as well.”
