Teaching Children in Schools and Refugee Centres in Perth, Australia

         

Although it sounds clichéd, I feel that I am gaining life experience and that I have the ability to associate and mix with children of different backgrounds and nationalities to myself. I have enjoyed having the responsibility to lead various groups of children in doing different activities.

I would recommend this placement to those who are contemplating going into teaching for some experience and even to those who are not (like myself) for some life experience. I think this placement would suit people who are obviously good with children. They should have a kind caring nature and a lot of patience.

Can you describe a typical day?

A typical day for myself would entail going into my morning class, which is A4, at about 9.45. They have set work each day which I help them with.

During recess I would usually go into the library and perhaps check emails.

After recess I would then go into my second class for the day which was D1. The work which they undertook each day was varied so again I would help them with whatever work was set and I would also sometimes lead small groups of the students.

Again at lunch time I would tend to use the internet facilities in the library.

After lunch I would be with one of the youngest classes, A5. This was an extremely enjoyable class to be in but could be rather tiring! The work would be varied everyday and often I would be given the responsibility of reading to the entire class.
