The Japan Foundation, Sydney is happy to announce a second round of Travel Grants for teachers wishing to attend this year’s National Symposium on Japanese Language Education.
These grants provide funds for teachers to cover accommodation and travel costs during the conference. Teachers from WA and the NT are eligible for funding up to $750; teachers from QLD, NSW and the ACT are eligible for funding up to $500.
NSJLE is an excellent opportunity for teachers from around the country to meet and network with other teachers from all sectors and levels of Japanese language education. Keynote speakers include Professor Kent Anderson, Professor David Nunan and Dr Shinji Sato.
This round of grants will close on 20 June. Guidelines and application forms can be found here. All enquiries should be directed to email@example.com.
The Department's partnership with ClassMovies allows NSW public schools to create short videos of innovative teaching practices and school programs. Raw footage captured by the schools will be professionally edited in
order to bring your story to life in the best possible way.
We are looking for schools who are delivering curriculum in exciting and innovative ways, resulting in rich learning experiences for students. We are particularly interested in best practice examples of integrated learning and differentiated learning that engage our diverse student population in authentic learning experiences. To find out more about the project, please visit the Department’s information page at https://detwww.det.nsw.edu.au/deptresources/classmovies/index.htm.
If this sounds like your school, please contact Amanda Lee (Amanda.Lee18@det.nsw.edu.au or 9244 5484) to discuss a possible focus area for a documentary. If you fit the bill, there will be no cost involved for your school, just the opportunity to show NSW public schools how you are inspiring your students every day.

Our school has decided to do interest electives with Year 7 and year 8 and I was wondering if you have any ideas on particular topics we could do? Year 7 will be 3 x 1hr every two weeks and year 8 two x 1hr every fortnight for a semester. Our actual LOTE time has been cut to focus on these. We have already thought of
anime/manga and a focus on Samurai life and times.... Thanks so much.
