A big thank you to everyone who attended our long table lunch on Saturday, 26th June at Tempayan restaurant. It was lovely to see many new faces and to have the opportunity to meet and listen to the wonderful and inspirational Robbie Gaspar. It also gave us a chance to socialise, network and enjoy a delicious Indonesian meal with one another.
Robbie spoke of his amazing experiences living and working in Indonesia, including his career as a professional footballer, his passion for the country, as well as learning Indonesian. He shared many ideas on how to use sport as a hook to engage students with the language and the importance of fostering strong relationships between Australia and Indonesia.
I think everyone walked away with a new perspective and some effective strategies to encourage student engagement.
Tempayan restaurant provided a wonderfully authentic ambience, and the room was abuzz with conversation and laughter.
Thanks again for your attendance and we look forward to seeing you at our next event.
