That's cool man. I actually currently live with a guy from Gorton - in fact the reason I have access to a balalaika is that he studies Russian. This regularly proves to be quite a small world indeed.
Still that's pretty cool as opportunities go, all of the initiatives in my schools have been provided by external private companies so it seems you struck it lucky.
