On Saturday the 30th of October we had our AGM 2021 and our Professional Learning Workshop, presented by Ibu Indah Hixon and Ibu Danielle Cook. We thank Pak Grant and Ibu Laura for making the Wandjoo Miya at Wesley available for us to hold this AGM.
Ibu Danielle Horne the president of WILTA was present and conducted the AGM.
It was a relaxing and friendly day for all the members. Members were enriched by new and fresh ideas for classroom activities which were presented by Ibu Indah Hixon and Ibu Danielle Cook.
Ibu Indah showed an effective strategy called ‘Connecting Body and Mind’. teaching and learning a Language through gestures and movement. This strategy has proven to be effective to enhance students learning. Ibu Indah demonstrated phrases, colours, numbers, prepositions, verb, adjective using her ‘made- up’ gestures as well as gestures that she adapted from AIM and AUSLAN. It was nice to see a video of her singing a song with gestures and her class during a lesson.
Ibu Danielle showed a session on how to use Minecraft for TL. She has given great information on how it is set up and how it functions. Ibu Danielle also shared her reflection of her students work and achievement through a Minecraft tasks.
Teachers had a chance to mingle with others over a nice morning tea, which then was followed by the AGM, where the 2022 WILTA Committee was confirmed.
Special thanks to Ibu Emma Chand who has provided us with an authentic dish for lunch. We look forward to seeing you all continue your membership with WILTA as 2022 should be an exciting year of events.
