EXPRESSION OF INTEREST TO HOST
WILTA is once again seeking expressions of interest from members who wish to have an IALF teacher as a short term language assistant in their classroom for a week during Term 2 2019. Preference will be given to applicants who are also able to host Bapak / Ibu guru in their home during their time in Western Australia, to provide or arrange adequate hospitality including all meals and transport, and to ensure that their guest feels valued and appreciated through offering a pleasant, welcoming and understanding atmosphere in their home.
The focus of the visit will be to work in Indonesian language classes across all phases of learning, as a classroom assistant. The RTV teacher will also be working with WILTA members in providing a professional learning session at our Term 2 Workshop if possible. The experience of having an RTV teacher in their classrooms has been unanimously praised and endorsed by both teachers and students alike each year since the program began. It is a rare and motivational opportunity for our students to have contact with a native speaker of Indonesian and their culture.
In the past few years the RTV teachers from Jakarta, Surabaya, Bali and Sumba have greatly enjoyed their opportunities to visit and teach in places such as Bunbury, Busselton, Rockingham, Mandurah, Geraldton, Northampton and Kalbarri, as well as both public and private schools in the Perth metropolitan area. Perth metropolitan and country members are also encouraged to form a “cluster” of more than one school to make the most of the travelling time involved for the RTV teacher.
The RTV to WA will occur during Weeks 2 to 6 of Term 2, 2019
i.e. 5 May to 2 June 2019
If you are interested in hosting the RTV teacher for a few days (up to one week) please complete the expression of interest form on the following pages, and email it to Ibu Donna Marshall at email@example.com the deadline shown below:
the end of the first week of April holidays, i.e. Sunday 21 April 2019
