Community Partners Visit TX

08 September 2016

After school on Wednesday 7th September the teachers and teaching assistants at TX were busy entertaining some special guests. 

  • APAA-9863-min
  • APAA-9851
  • APAA-9915
  • APAA-0049
  • APAA-0050

Our visitors were over 100 children from five different community partners that we work closely with throughout the year. We were visited by schools for disadvantaged children - Poussieres de Vie and Bin Trieu, Anh Minh school for the hearing impaired, Christina Noble Foundation (who provide medical treatment and education for families who cannot otherwise afford it) and the Mai Am shelter which houses young boys.

The aim of the afternoon was to allow staff the opportunity to experience community service, to develop an understanding of the value of community service and WHY we do it and to encourage staff to consider how they can be involved, create opportunities for community service and embrace it in their teaching. However, the most important aim of course was that the visiting children had fun and were able to experience activities and resources that they may not have had access to before.

There were a range of exciting activities on offer including: rock climbing, scratch coding, printing, football, samba drumming, design technology challenges and many more. While I was walking around during the activities it was obvious that the children were fully engaged and relishing the opportunity to do things outside of the norm. Although language was a barrier for most of the teaching staff, the children and teachers were still managing to communicate and make connections – mostly through a lot of smiling! Overall, the afternoon was a success. One of the definitions of ‘community’ is a feeling of ‘fellowship’ between people living in the same place. During the project and after, it was clear that this positive feeling had spread over TX. We look forward to working with all of our community partners again in the near future.
