As winter approaches in the northern hemisphere, we are lucky enough to be entering spring here in Australia. The Ozford team always makes the most of the good weather here in Melbourne, making opportunities for students to experience learning outdoors and not just within the classroom walls or online. Spring in Australia runs from September to November. Now that we are over the cold spell, what things can we do to enjoy all that spring has to offer?

If you’re lucky enough to get out of the city – you can visit Cherry Orchards and Sunflower fields for the perfect Instagram pic!

Here at Ozford, we are located in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD, just across the road from Flagstaff Gardens. Luckily for our students, when better weather arrives, they can enjoy their lunchtimes and study breaks hanging out in the park and even attend their lesson online whilst enjoying that sunshine. We are looking forward to welcoming students back to campus soon!
