07 Mar 2019
Our Russian teacher, Dr Irina Petrova, was awarded the Certificate of Appreciation for presenting at the Russian Communities United Through Language Conference at the end of 2018. The event was hosted by NSW Department of Education.
Dr Petrova’s presentation was called "Developing a strong and engaging primary language program". She presented to an audience of more than 70 teachers from across NSW. The topics included an explanation of the main components of an effective Russian language teaching program. She shared a number of effective teaching strategies that help in engaging students in a primary school classroom.
Also, Dr Petrova received excellent feedback on her approach to teaching Russian from specialist language teachers, who mentioned that the knowledge they gained would help them to improve their own teaching practices. Many teachers asked for a copy of the presentation slides and commented on how brilliantly it was delivered to the teachers.
