This concert is at Glebe Town Hall Saturday 16 August 2-4 pm. You will be able to see Japanese tea ceremony and Ikebana display at the same time as you listen to the koto and shakuhichi. Please see attached flyer.
Does anyone recognise this resource?
I found a resource of printed files that I have labelled 'On-line readers'. I know that I printed the teacher's notes and worksheets because they were available, but I can't seem to find the actual site or CD. It doesn't appear to be quirky comics, sugoi or the On-line resource for Years 5-8.
The units and topics I have are:
私のこと (Who is it?, Do you have a pet? Ken's Day, My Family, I love my room)

I hope many students will be able to participate in this year's contest. It's a great way for students to improve their confidence in speaking Japanese.

We are planning to run some workshops for committed students of Japanese in Years 8-9 in NSW government schools. Some teachers may have seen Shingo Usami presenting the obento workshops developed by Western Australia at our conference. Shingo has agreed to work with our students and we are seeking interest especially from country schools. We would need one school to be the hub providing a venue, and hosting students and teachers from neighbouring schools. Shingo thinks a maximum of 50 students per workshop is ideal, and there would be a limit on the number of students each school could send. We would like the Japanese teacher to attend with their students as a professional development activity, and can provide relief for this purpose. The workshops would run from 9.30 to 2 pm and would cost approx $15 per student.
The dates available for these workshops are:
September 2 - 19
October 27 - 31
November 3 - 21
Could interested schools please email me by 31 July indicating whether they would like to be a hub or just a participant, and letting me know their choice of dates? I will then work out a schedule and get back to you with more details.
Please email email@example.com
We have a Japanese language teacher (part-time) position available for our evening course starting Term 4, 2014. Please see detailed information on our web site.
Thank you very much!

The wonderful ABC has had several programs recently that deal with how people cope with the death of loved ones. I thought they might be useful for your Extension students.
Compass at 6.30 on Sunday evenings is currently doing a series looking at faith and funerals across different religions and cultures.
The ABC also took an interesting look at funeral traditions in the recent Billy Connolly's Big Send Off : ABC TV
Billy Connolly embarks on a personal and enlightening journey where he looks at our attitudes towards death.
Australian Story recently looked at the first novel by Brooke Davis, Lost and Found, which she wrote after the unexpected tragic death of her mother. It has been sold for publication in 25 countries.
And the documentary Tender looked at a community-based funeral cooperative, lamenting the fact that funerals have become so impersonal and removed from families and culture. There is a study guide produced to go with this documentary.
As the above 4 programs are from ABC TV they should be available on iview.
And the new movie Still Life also deals with these issues, highlighting the issue of Connectedness.
Here's a new resource from our Refugee Student Programs Advisor. Hopefully you can use it with your students. http://www.roads-to-refuge.com.au/
I'm looking for teachers who can help me with my Yr 12 students' speaking exam, as an external marker to mimic the HSC interview. My school is based around Liverpool area, and I'm happy to mark for other students as well.

My name is Yumiko Aiki and I am currently teaching Japanese at Monash University. I have completed a Master research project regarding kanji learning strategies and would like to conduct ongoing
investigation in Australia. At this time, I would like to investigate the following points at school level:
How current Japanese teachers teach kanji in their classes
How their students memorise kanji characters
What problems Japanese teachers face in order to teach kanji effectively.
I am seeking opportunities to visit schools with Japanese programs and will complete a SERAP application in order to do this.
If you have any information that would assist in my research could you please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
