I thought long and hard about this! I have prepared a lesson that looks at our Indigenous culture and lets Korean students actively contribute to the next Victorian Bunjil Art Gallery exhibitions. Students will decorate their own paper feather with Koori symbols to tell a story, then write a message in Korean and English on the back.
The English version of our March Newsletter is now posted to the blog.
We welcome Hailey the new teacher at Yuille Park PS. Hailey is a Korean teacher with an Australian accent! She is enjoying the challenges of teaching and we look forward to her contributions working with her partnership school in Korea. While some of the Victorian schools in the project teacher a Korean program it is not an essential part for involvement in this project. Korean students learn English from a young age and they welcome the opportunity to practice with native speakers.
Today I had the pleasure of supporting Joseph from the Education Team at the Sydney Korean Embassy with how to use ZOOM for an important meeting tomorrow with the National Principal’s group who will be touring Korea after Easter. He was a fast learner! I look forward to the opportunities this affords for meetings and presentations in the future.
