Starting in 2019, Geelong Viqueque Friendship Schools (GVFS) has partnered with Mary MacKillop Today (MMT) in an innovative teacher training in Viqueque. 40 Viqueque teachers will take part and GVFS has committed to covering the expenses for seven teachers at a total cost of $A14,000.
The focus is on assisting the professional development of current primary teachers and through enhancing their Tetum language skills.
The cost of the program per teacher is approximately $A2,000 and if we had more funds we could do more.
If you would like to donate either to Geelong Viqueque Friendship Schools or to Mary Mackillop directly please contact Tricia Blane on 0408377294 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your donations to MMI are tax deductible.
