They come up with different ideas about skills and education’s needs from each group; however, their answers were included here. “We think they would need foreign languages which are important to the world and work such English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French, Thai, and Khmer language. Furthermore, the computer skills are important for employment as they use technology” one of groups presented.

To achieve the quality of our educational program, we provide variety activities. Please see what we have done for the last three months mainly to improve children’s English program.

Classroom painting

With friends and teachers from Ireland, our students and staff did great job to paint and decorate their English classroom to look nicer at our school. After painting the classroom wall, they fold and cut some English words and phrases to hand them on the wall of the classroom in order to be easy to access of English vocabulary and language uses. They also make some posters to have a better look. They have a great fun together. 

Capacity building and quality improvement  

Teacher training

By partnership with Donabate Portran Education Together National School (DPETNS) from Ireland, our English teachers have been provided a teacher training. They conduct a multi teacher training topics to improve teaching strategies and techniques at our school. These topics included classroom management, student motivation and encouragement, having fun in the lessons at all levels, correction and feedbacks, how to teach kids and adults effectively, how to use resources effectively and how to use song and music in English lessons.

After the training offered, they want to make sure if our teachers and staff have applied what they have been trained in their lessons, the teacher trainers arranged classroom demonstration as well as participated in teaching English together with our teachers. As a result, it is great because our students get more involved and motivated to learn. Our teachers get more independent and confident to lead, teach and manage their students effectively.

Management training

Besides working with our English teachers, DPETNS conducts a management and leadership training to our director and manager which focus on three areas, management, leadership and communication. These topics are very useful and interesting for us to apply in our daily work.

Furthermore, it makes admin work easier and faster to record, type and keep documentation. I am very happy that Salariin Kampuchea created this program offering us with specific skill for the future.   Before my exam, I really studied hard.
