Linda Ann Williams (British):
"One of my most memorable moments was being able to devote individual attention to a pupil who usually struggled to complete all tasks set by the teacher in English lessons. As a result of my assistance, the pupil was able to succeed in taking tasks assigned in a lesson through to completion. It was an amazing feeling witnessing her obvious excitement at achieving this.
Signven Wong Sze Wan (Malaysian):
"I am gaining a huge sense of achievement from working with the children (range from 7 to 12yrs old) from different countries at the school to boost their confidence and understanding of English. I am enjoying learning about different types of animals in Australia and new perspectives, from the teacher at the school and the children. I am gaining valuable experience in working with children both one-on-one and story telling to the whole class.
Every child is so happy to get along with me. I always feel very welcomed at the school, by teachers and children alike. The children are awesome, they are nice, friendly and lovely!
Abby Le Main (British):
"I feel the most memorable part of the programme was seeing how happy the children were even though they were facing difficult times. The smallest things meant the world to them.
My biggest achievement was finding new strategies and techniques that I could apply to my own teaching when home. This will enable me to be a better teacher.
The experience I had was truly amazing. I learnt so much and was able to work alongside some truly inspirational and welcoming people. I felt that I was part of the class as soon as I stepped in, I couldn't have wished for better mentors. They taught me many teaching strategies and techniques that I intend to use, but most of all they taught me to enjoy the time with the children and to learn lots about the children's backgrounds and families."
Perth was built on the banks of the magnificent Swan River over 150 years ago and is now a city rich in culture and filled with theatres, art galleries and museums. The city is modern and vibrant - a fun, friendly and 'laid back' place, with clear skies and a sunny climate.
Western Australia is locally known as the 'state of excitement!' Some of its more famous attractions include Kings Park, Scarborough Beach, Fremantle and the Swan River. Fremantle (or as the local’s call it, ‘Freo’) is the city’s port and is rich in history.
weekends there are lots of markets, alfresco style cafes and other outdoor types of entertainment to explore and discover.
