The fifteen Aussie volunteers are half-way through their training course. The first 4 days have been building up their skills with a view to their Teaching Practice at the weekend, where they will switch from being students to being teachers, giving an hour's lesson to a class in Robert's School.
This cohort has been the usual mix of attentive, hardworking trainees and those with more of an eye on the evening socialising! We've also had an explosion of ipads, smart phones and wifi laptops this time which seemed like useful resources at first but have been a bit of a distraction at times. There's always a fine line between encouraging the volunteers to focus on the lesson without being patronising or treating them as children. We'll get there!
