Korean City Excursion
26 July, 2017
The senior Korean class from Point Cook VSL Centre recently enjoyed a language based excursion into the city of Melbourne. The students met their teacher, Mr Hyung-Soon Yim at Federation Square and from there, they had to find their way to a mystery destination by listening and following recorded directions in Korean. In groups of three, they were given different routes to the mystery destination, which happened to be the State Library. The students then visited a variety of Korean grocery shops, where they conversed with the shopkeepers in Korean, asking questions about the produce, price and availability of items, concluding with successful purchase transactions. The last stop was a Korean restaurant, where students ordered food using Korean specific vocabulary and phrases that they had practised in class. Enjoying a delicious Korean BBQ lunch was a wonderful way to end such a successful day, full of enjoyable learning activities and experiences!

East Timor Fundraiser
18 July, 2017
For the last six years, VSL students and staff have organised fundraising activities to assist local schools in East Timor. We are delighted to announce that this year the VSL has collected $8,238 for the Ainaro Community School. This is a wonderful result, bringing the total raised over this period to over $37,000. Due to this generosity, students at the school will benefit enormously from opportunities to learn, grow and excel. The money raised will go a long way to supporting and engaging the youth of Ainaro in activities that will further their prospects in life. With such support they are able to: - put more volunteer teams into Ainaro to run the English Support Program - support ongoing tertiary scholarships for a number of students (including teaching and nursing courses). - provide funds to support the professional development of teachers in the Ainaro district. - assist with the Art training program in Ainaro, where young students are receiving training in the Arts and learning English at the same time. Thank you to the generous VSL community!

East 1 Open Mornings
Turkish Immersion Classes South Oakleigh
19 June, 2017
The Oakleigh South Immersion classes had a distinct Turkish flavour on June 3rd as students, parents and teachers created Turkish specialities such as kurabiye, mercimekli köfte and börek. The sweet spice aromas wafted in and out of the school corridors as our Turkish students happily laboured in the home economics area. Although the students believed that it would a simple cooking lesson the teachers had something else in mind as well. The lesson conveniently camouflaged a multitude of educational layers, educational experiences and provided for an engaging student friendly learning processes. It also provided an opportunity for teachers and parents to model the Turkish cultural experience. The result was just scrumptiously educational! The students provided restaurant standard presentation and quality. Our pictures below can attest to the success of this memorable Turkish immersion class.
